Hailing from the streets of Pimville Soweto, Linda Mbuso can be recognized as the epitome of the new age South African young adult. With music deeply woven into him at an early age, Linda took up the violin and later the drums. His introduction into radio occurred in his Matric year at Holy Family College in Parktown. Leading the pack as the Deputy Head Boy, he kick started an in-school radio station, which inevitably paved the way for his future aspirations.
Whilst completing his tertiary education at UJ in Media studies, majoring in Public Relations and Radio Broadcasting, Linda continued to plant his feet firmly in the media industry.
2012 saw Linda presenting, producing and directing on SABC 3’s The Expresso Show as a Johannesburg based insert TV presenter. It was in that year too that he graduated cum laude, in a BA Psychology degree from UJ. His commercial radio career jumpstarted in 2009 at Gauteng youth station YFM and set him up for six years of broadcasting.
He also was spent two years being a Trendspotter for Phillip Morris International, which provided numerous travels around South Africa and also to Spain for the F1 Grand Prix. In 2014 he became the voice of one of the biggest corporate radio stations in South Africa, Pick n Pay radio broadcasting nationally and in Zambia.
One of Linda’s biggest accomplishments was completing his novel “Wounded Smiles” which is with UK publishers. His most exciting endeavour and dream come true is joining the biggest and most influential youth radio station in South Africa, 5FM. Everything from here on is merely a step away for this young man. And in the words of Joseph Campbell, “Follow your bliss, and the universe will open doors for you, where there were only walls”
