Khanyi Dlomo Career
Her interest in media began when she won the Thandi Face cover Girl competition at the age of 16. In 1995, when she was just 20 and a journalism student at the University of Witwatersrand, she made history as the first black newscaster for SABC1, South Africa’s national broadcaster. South Africa was at the earliest stages of its national rebirth and the country was undergoing its post-apartheid liberation. Corporations were being mandated to become more representative of the new ‘rainbow nation,’ and so for the first time, black South Africans were getting jobs that were previously the exclusive preserve of whites. SABC1 was under pressure to adhere to the directive, and so Dhlomo, who formerly did low-paid freelance reporting jobs for the station, was given the position of a news anchor.
She was appointed as editor of True Love Magazine at the age of 22 which saw the magazine circulation double in a span of one year. She stepped down as the editor, after eight years . Later she relocated to France and she worked as manager of South Africa’s Tourism Board in Paris. After returning to SouthAfrica in 2007 she founded Ndalo Media in partnership with Naspers and successfully published the magazine, Destiny.
Later in 2008 she launched DestinyConnect.com which serves as the online extension of Destiny magazine and in July 2009 Destiny Man, edited by Kojo Baffoe was launched together with its online extension DestinyMan.com. Dhlomo launched the boutique department store, Luminance, in 2013.

So pleased to call this amazingly talented young woman @bespoke_kentse my #WCW and the first winner of SA's first season of @projectrunwaysa. Besides her talent, what I love about Kentse is the story she recently shared with me about having Paris Fashion Week on her vision board at home before she entered PRSA and how that helped her to continue to believe in the beauty and possibility of her dreams even when her immediate circumstances were telling her to give up. What is going on in our minds and hearts is always stronger than what it happening outside of us and if our internal world is faith-filled and beautiful, our external reality will ultimately bear testimony to our faith in a beautiful way. Halala Kentse! #TeamNdalo and all our partners at #ProjectRunwaySA are excited to share your talent with the world. 🎊🎊🎉🎉😘❤❤ #Repost @bespoke_kentse (@get_repost) ・・・ Words can't describe how I feel right now. @projectrunwaysa first winner, I am so honoured to have been trusted with such a huge responsibility. This opportunity means the world to me , my family and my community which I am very passionate about. When I talk of taking Africa to space, I'm talking about reawakening what we as Africans have always had and our ability to create beyond our limits. I thank and respect the designers and all the game changers that come before me… looking forward to sharing this with you. To our amazing Sponsors @4thstreetwine @ndalomedia @ellesouthafrica @tresemmesa @lexus_southafrica @edgarsfashion @menlynsa @destinyconnect @lipaultsa Thank you for investing in Africa's talent, your contribution has truly made it possible for young individuals such as myself to believe in the power of their dreams.

Ndalo Media acquires Elle South Africa and Elle Deco SA
Nearing it’s 10 year anniversary this year Ndalo Media has reached a major milestone and has acquired global media brands Elle South Africa, as well its homes magazine Elle Decoration.
Sharing the good news on Azania Mosaka’s show founder and CEO Khanyi Dhlomo explains what obtaining the license means for the company.
“There is so much more to them than the magazines, and there is so much more we want to add to them than the magazines.
“What attracted me to them is the power of the brands, the longevity of the brands, the global appeal of the brands and the broad millennial target market that they talk to.
“There is such a great opportunity to build them beyond print, to digital, events and other related product services.
Dlhomo says the digital and events move is the future of any media brand if they are to survive.
“Consumers want to access brands that they love and trust, anywhere, anyhow, at any time and so the survival and profitability of any media brand is to deliver on that.
“When you have access to an already powerful brand that has already done the hard work of winning consumer trust and love and awareness it becomes a much easier job to then build that ecosystem of platforms, experiences and products and services around that particular brand.”
