About Helga

My name is Helga! Raised in Zimbabwe, I became proudly Capetonian in 1983 & have  lived and appreciated this most beautiful city ever since. My main job was from 2004 to 2014 Monday to Friday (6am to 9am) the Rise and Shine presenter on 107.5/96.7 Radio CCFm in Cape Town. Life for me changed drastically, when I began to feel it was time to leave CCFm, after almost 21 years of involvement and seek a change of focus. It was a huge leap of faith for me to leave CCFm. Since July 2014, I have been working for an international teacher recruitment company and really enjoy it

My Personality Type…

I’m pretty easy-going. I’m a born optimist. I really believe in enjoying each day. Age doesn’t matter. I am going to live deep into old age and see my great-grandchildren. I pray for them regularly! I am blessed with lots of faith!!

I love spending time with my family – my husband is Mike. Our children: Stacey who is married to Adrian and they have a super cute daughter Elsie. Our son is David, a crazy talented musician who has birthed a YouTube Channel here.




My Most Memorable Days…

Tuesday 17th July 1979 – The best day of my life – I came to faith in Christ.

Saturday 9th August 1986 – The second best day of my life. The day I said “I do” to Mike.

Friday 4th December 1987 & Friday 1st March 1991 – the days I had my children.

Saturday 20th June 2009 – The day my sweet Stacey married my wonderful son-in-law Adrian. What a spectacularly memorable day. The Lord blessed us and Mike’s speech was one that gave God all the honour and glory. It was also the day, Mike pronounced an amazing blessing on Adrian, Stacey & David.  21/5/2018 – the day Stacey gave birth to Elsie and we got to meet her.



Mike & Helga ready to go
