Young People to Watch - Danine Naidoo


Danine Naidoo, of Hectic Nine 9 fame has just joined the team at local breakfast show, Expresso.

Danine Janet Naidoo was born 18 January 1987 in Kingsbury Maternity Home in Cape Town. She attended Holy Cross Convent in Bellville and continued to complete her secondary education at Stellenberg High, in the Northern Suburbs. Danine who is also known to friends as ‘D’, ‘Dani’ or ‘Bean’ attained a National Diploma in Public Relations from Cape Peninsula University of Technology and is also a certified Fashion Stylist.

While most of us know Danine to be one of the bubbly and vibrant television presenters we have been introduced to through the magazine show, Hectic Nine 9 – Danine also contributed to Okuhle Media, the production company behind HN9, as a publicist.

I first met Danine while reporting on one of their social arms earlier this year, and she is by far one of the most humble, accommodating and thoughtful public personalities I have met so far.

Thereafter, the pretty lady and savvy professional was an MC at Live Magazine’s launch earlier this year alongside, to which she added a sincere and fresh presence.

Danine also auditioned for Lifestyle show, Top Billing in 2007. We’ve seen the creative move on to higher highs, what’s next?
