About me


I’m Khwezi Magwaza a digital content professional from Johannesburg South Africa. I was the editor in chief of Seventeen South Africa, and have worked with Primedia Broadcasting, BET News, and Essence Magazine, The Girl Effect and Praekelt.org. I was also a radio and TV producer for many years launching South Africa’s most popular entertainment show The Real Goboza, hosted by Trevor Noah. As a Ford Foundation Fellow, I had the opportunity to study at New York University in the innovative specialization Studio 20. The program looks to combine digital technologies and journalism. Most recently I held the role of editorial director at Girl Effect, where we build global digital platforms connecting girls to critical information, skills, and entertainment across 66 countries in 15 languages.
