The honeyed voice of Bob ‘The Jammer’ Mabena has been on the airwaves for 25 years and really needs no introduction. His is the recognisable voice and familiar face that we have come to associate with consistency and endurance in the cut-throat and ever-changing entertainment industry.

Bob is a true veteran of the broadcast medium. It’s not hard to believe that he has reached a 25-year milestone in the industry. It is not a feat achieved by many and its only fitting to mark his journey with a weekend-long celebration!

He has come a long way from his days as a “wet-behind-the-ear” radio host from his early days at Radio Bop in 1989. The power of his voice behind the mic caught the listeners’ ears and the attention of those at Metro FM, before moving to 94.7 Highveld Stereo and his current breakfast show at Kaya FM.

His journey has held its fair share of challenges, firsts, loves, losses and highs.
He has worn many hats: radio personality, a television presenter on Studio Mix in the 90s, MC and also dabbled in music with his famous hip hop track, ‘Get Funky’. He is also a family man and the owner of a media company - EndowMedia and Marketing.

He is far from stepping away from behind the mic. Radio remains his first love and to celebrate his career success in the industry, he will be hosting a weekend in Sun City, aptly titled ‘The Jammer Journey’. He envisions this as a weekend where he will be sharing his experiences and lessons with his friends and supporters. More than a weekend away filled with VIP parties, he will get behind the decks and lead workshops and talks to share his knowledge. It will be a weekend to remember and to light the torch for the next chapter of his journey in radio and entertainment!
