This talented radio jock joined Ukhozi FM as a presenter in 1994. She was still a nurse and had a once-a-week slot about family planning. Since she had many listeners, she started to present Kumnandi Ekhaya, a program for women and children.
Dudu Khoza has participated in many community activities. She runs the Lucky Dube Trust to cater to Dude’s widows and children’s education. She is a member of the Zulu kingdom royal committee and has reached many through magazine columns, newspaper articles, and radio talks.
After noticing her potential, Mr. Hawu Mbatha, who is the former station manager of Ukhozi FM, suggested that she attend auditions to work as a presenter.
