In 2011, Tumi furthered her studies in Marketing and graduated with a Marketing Communications degree at the University of Johannesburg.
“My dream since I was young has always been to find something I’m passionate about and be the best that I can be in whatever that is. Luckily for me my passion fell in the entertainment industry and I have never looked back ever since”.
In the same year Tumi graduated, she also started working for an urban youth radio station based in Johannesburg. Tumi spent three years learning and falling in love with the radio space.
“Radio really fascinated me because it was so different to television. It was more relaxed and personal and I fell in love with that. I look up to people like DJ Fresh, Chilli M, Mo’Flava, Unathi Msengana and Glen Lewis…People who have managed to remain relevant throughout all these years, their work speaks for itself.”
Besides everything else, Tumi Voster is a big lover of fashion and describes her style as “fabulous and street”. Tumi adds, “Every day is a chance for me to play dress-up. I get my inspiration from runways, Instagram, blogs and street style.”
“Co-hosting the weekday show, The 5th Element, with DJ Warras on 5FM is like a dream come true. We have known and worked with each other for a while. It literally feels like hanging with my friend. The show offers lots of entertainment; I call it a place to break away from all your daily problems. That time of the evening we just want everyone to have fun and relax! My dream has always been to be on a national platform and engage with different people from different backgrounds. Now I get to do just that, with the COOLEST brand ever! 5FM understands the youth space and that’s why I love it. Plus it gives you that element of cool.”
