Dynamic, vivacious and business savvy are just some of the words to describe Lorna Maseko, not to mention petite and delicate as a top South African ballet dancer and the first professional ballet dancer of colour in South Africa, making dance history and attesting to the fact that anything is possible... if you believe.
Not only is she an established choreographer and dancer, but she is also one of the most up-and-coming MCs South Africa has to offer, hosting events such as the Annual Vukani Fashion Awards, The Massed Choir Festival as well as giving motivational talks to under-privileged girls. This is part of her heartbeat, to give back to those who are less fortunate than herself.
In 2007 she was chosen as November Woman In Action by True Love Magazine and was selected as the final top 12 for the Top Billing presenter search competition. She was also nominated as the Cosmopolitan Awesome Woman in December 2007, but she wasn’t going to stop there. In 2009 she launched her fragrance Pirouette by LornaM, this is the mark that symbolises the change Maseko has bought into the South African ballet industry. A symbol that will live beyond her years!
Lorna has worked as a presenter and producer of an entertainment programme called Afro Showbiz News as well as co-hosted and produced a live current affairs, magazine breakfast show, The Weekender on SABC News International (previously known as SABC Africa) – yet again adding another element to this darling bud of Africa.
But her most recent achievement - and, we think, one of her greatest! - is becoming a Top Billing presenter where she impresses audiences no end and has added an air of grace to the screen.
