05:00: I wake up and get ready to start the day. I prepare food for my dogs Dolce and Gabbana. I try to have breakfast before I leave the house, but sometimes this is not possible because of my hectic schedule.

07:00: I arrive on set at Generations, head straight to do my hair and make-up. I start shooting my three or four scenes until lunch time.

12:00 – 14:00: I go through my emails and also work on my underwear line. My manager gets the opportunity to update me about any gigs I have to MC or DJ at and interviews or photo-shoots I have to do later in the week.

14:00: I go to the 5FM studios for a briefing with my team and prepare for my show.

15:00 – 18:00: I host the Thabooty Drive.

19:00: I meet a client or my team.

21:00: I get home and plan my schedule for the next day. I then spend some time with my fiancé if he’s around or talk to him on the phone if he’s not. He usually travels on business.

23:00: I try to make sure I am in bed at this time.
