Spotlight on: Real Goboza's Sinazo Yolwa

As model, TV presenter and actress, Sinazo Yolwa turns 30, we take a retrospective look at her life thus far to give you more insight into the Real Goboza presenter. 

Hailing from the Eastern Cape, Yolwa, got her big break when she scored her first presenting gig as host of the SABC 3 entertainment variety programme, The A List, in 2010 - shortly after she graduated from the University of Cape Town (UCT). 

Yolwa has always displayed the spirit of a go-getter. In 2004, she moved to Cape Town, from the Eastern Cape so that she could complete high school. While there, she stayed in Khayelitsha for a few months, but the distance she had to travel daily forced her to look for a place closer to Sea Point. Yolwa found a flat in Green Point and stayed there until she matriculated in 2006. She made it into UCT where she studied Bcomm Accounting. She was awarded the UCT Association of Black Alumni bursary in 2009 and graduated at the end of 2010.

She has also done an extensive amount of work as a model since then and she joined the Top Billing team in 2011 as a field reporter of sorts. 

In 2012, she joined the SABC1 lifestyle magazine programme, The Link, as an entertainment correspondent where she worked with Lerato Kganyago. 

The following year, she joined SABC 1 entertainment news show, Real Goboza, alongside Amanda Du Pont following Pearl Thusi's departure and has been a part of the team ever since. 

In that year, she also got invited to be part of a presenter search for an unidentified channel based in the UK, so for months, she would fly between SA and the UK every week to fulfil her host duties in both countries.


In addition to that, she also modelled for a few shows at London fashion week during the time. 

Speaking to Kuli Roberts on Trending SA, Yolwa says she is the longest lasting RGB presenter because she simply loves gossip and still enjoys her job after all these years. 

Yolwa also revealed that is she is currently single so if you have always thought that she's gorgeous and you have what it takes to keep that smile on her face, we say 'shoot your shot!'
