Noxy The Divine Diva: A Divine Spark Setting The Media World Alight…..

There are certain people in life who seem to possess a magical spark that lights up everyone around them. Nokuthula Sithole, aka. Noxy The Divine Diva,is one such person. An intoxicating, bubbly personality, Noxy was born to entertain, and she always knew from a tender age that the media world was her space to conquer and shine. So from the moment she entered the scene and rocked the airwaves at Star FM, we ‘kinda’ suspected that being an entertainer was her superpower. And we were right! We caught up with the beautiful star for a quick chat on her career, her life and some of her favourite things…

Can you tell us a little about your background?

I was born and raised in Bulawayo. My parents separated when I was 6 and I moved to Masvingo for some time then went back to Bulawayo at 11…

How did you get started in the Media industry?

I used to work in Hospitality before Media and I hosted the Star Fm team quite a few times. I’d always get compliments on how I had a great personality and that I needed to try out Radio. So when I left my job, the first place I knocked was at Star FM and the rest, as they say, is history…

The name ‘Noxy Divine Diva’, how did you come up with it?

(Laughs) This is a weird one but I guess it kind of stuck. ‘Noxy’ comes as a shortcut to my full name Nokuthula, and ‘Divine Diva’; well let’s just say I thought myself a Diva in the Lord….

Did you have any role models growing up? Who were some of those?

As a kid I remember watching Makanaka on TV, and telling my mum that this was what I wanted to do. Back then Makanaka used to be dressed by Alcatraz and whenever my mum would put me on the bus to Harare, as soon as I got there, I’d head straight to Alcatraz to do a little shopping just so I could wear the same clothes as her. So yeah, as a kid she was definitely a ‘role model’. As an adult the list is a bit longer now and includes Pearl Thusi, Ruvheneko and Nomzamo Mbatha.

What do you love most about your work?

Meeting people! I love meeting new people; there’s so much to learn and each and every person is a new experience- good or bad.

Any favorite moments on radio?

This is so hard because I’ve had quite a few good ones but interviewing Jackie Mgido will definitely be in the top 5.

If you hadn’t been a media personality what would you have been?

I think I’ve always known I wanted to be in Media and dreaming about anything else never occurred to me. As a kid I wanted to be an Author and TV Personality, and in my early 20s I spent so much time singing in church I thought of being a musician. And then Radio happened so I guess Media was always going to be it.

Can you describe yourself in five words.

Fun, Loving , Kind , Resilient and Ambitious.

What has been your greatest fear and how have you conquered it?

Failing myself. And I’m working hard to reach my full potential. I don’t want to look back and have any regrets.

What’s the one thing you can’t do without?

My phone…I’m really addicted.

Top five songs on your playlist at the moment?

Poptain ft Nutty O- Kokai

Maverick City- Man of your word

Chelsea Mguni -Shoko Renyu

Jah Prayzah -Chengetedza

Tauren Wells- Known

If you had a superpower, what would it be and why?

Invisibility so I can snoop on people or just scare them by dropping things or randomly writing on walls (Laughs)

When you are not working how do you usually spend your time?

Reading a book, binge watching stuff on TV or hanging out with my friends.

How do you want to be remembered?

I want to be remembered as a kind and loving person. Some people want international recognition and as much as that would be nice I just want for the people close to me to remember me and feel warm.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

Happy, living comfortably and still in the media space.
