Born in the township of Alexandra to a taxi-owner father and a secretary mother, Lorna Maseko found her first passion when she slipped on a pair of ballet shoes at the age of nine. Her resulting dance career (and hard work) took her around the world for international competitions, and culminated in her making dance history when she starred as Kitri in Don Quixote, becoming one of South Africa’s first two ballet dancers of colour (along with Andile Ndlovu) to perform a leading role on a professional stage.

Lorna went on to star in other leading roles, but she couldn’t shake the feeling that she wanted to do more, so in 2007 she left ballet behind to pursue her next dream: TV. Despite not progressing past the top 10 of SABC 3’s Presenter Search competition for the popular lifestyle programme Top Billing, the stars aligned when the show (which had covered Lorna’s ballet productions in the past) approached her to join the presenter line-up in 2010.
