Minnie rose to fame presenting the SABC1 music show LIVE.

Minnie has spoken in the past about the importance of respecting your craft and knowing the kind of industry you work in.
She recently tweeted about how she felt the Covid-19 pandemic had exposed how the entertainment industry in SA is set up.“This lockdown is truly exposing the entertainment industry for what it is. Underpaid, undervalued and over-hyped PR stunts. Things aren’t what they seem. We need to do better as a whole. Clout doesn’t pay the bills.
