Tinopona Tini Tin Katsande speaks on her return to radio. Tin Tin on Sunday co-presented with Tonderai Nokutenda Katsande on the new ZiFM Stereo show, The Sunday Brunch, coming as a surprise to many.
Zimbabwean actress-come-radio-and-television-presenter Tinopona “Tin Tin” Katsande has said she is thrilled to be back on daytime radio after a long absence.
Speaking to NewsDay Life & Style, Tin Tin said it was a blessing to be doing what she loves adding that she is honoured and humbled to be back working with her “mentor, friend and biggest most loyal cheerleader, my boss TK.” She added: I am a bit surprised that it’s been purported that this is my first time back on ZiFM since I was unlawfully dismissed over seven years ago.
That is incorrect, I rejoined ZiFM three years ago with my own show called Formation that aired on Sunday nights.
I then fell pregnant with my second son. It was a difficult pregnancy and I had to stop the late-night shift and when I gave birth, I then decided to hang the radio coat for a while as I focused on raising my newborn baby Yambuko.
Tin Tin who is running an entrepreneurial eggs business as a side hustle from her entertainment career expressed gratitude to family and friends who stood with her “at every hurdle.”
She added that she would continue with her Mazai KwaTino project which “is blossoming into a formal business.”
