More about Zakia

About Zakia: I believe in spreading love and happiness in which ever space I’m at. Being on radio and a compere/MC at various events, international and South African, makes it all so worthwhile. Network empowering women (NEW), an NPO, of which I am the director was formed to provide a voice for women and children. Zakia Ahmed Media and events is a company which gives me an opportunity to showcase my creativity in putting events together.


Radio Experience & Progression: I started on radio by accident. Went for an audition as a lead in a play and got selected as a new voice for radio. I haven’t looked back since and I am proud to say I have tasted success all the way(I don’ know the meaning of modesty). Knowing that I can make a positive difference makes my profession a meaningful one.

Accomplishments: Meeting Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan will always be a moments one. Being asked to compere Jagit Singh with my husband Safee Siddiqi is an achievement that I will cherish. The other biggie was being compere for the Rahat Fateh Ali Khan concert during his first visit to South Africa. And then followed being compere for a string of SA and international artists. One of my pet projects on radio is broadcasting to a live audience from international soapie stars to international singers and local artists as well.


Hobbies: Singing even though I can’t and dancing even though I have two left feet. I like reading and travelling.


General Facts: The most important thing in my life is being a mother. I love living. Having a temper and hiding it beautifully is a class act of mine. I try not to allow others to dictate how I react to a situation. I am very pro local music. If I had to choose between love and money I would choose money.
