Precious Kofi


Precious Kofi talked a lot as a child. That's when her mother told her: "You should be on TV.� Kofi started her trajectory young, growing up in Mandela Park next to Hout Bay. She did her first catalogues at age 11 and her first commercial at age 13. By the time she was 17, Kofi was presenting Hip2B2. At 18, she conceptualised and pitched her own show and the following year she was presenting the Precious Show, which ran for two seasons. She is working with Urban Brew and at her own production company, Kofi Productions, on a new SABC1 series Precious Africa. She envisages it as a reality documentary experiencing the lives of different people in Africa. Oprah, watch your back. � Eamon Allan
