Peelo Mookodi’s clearly not a stranger to the spotlight. She was a firm fan favourite on Sabc 3’s Presenter Search and week after week her fanbase just kept on growing. Whereas most people would shy away from the kind of scrutiny that comes with being any sort of host (Family functions included) she dazzles with a confidence that’s somewhere between God given and self taught & mastered.
Before she was on SABC, interviewing the likes of David Tlale and Somizi, the young lady sharpened her teeth in the Botswana entertainment industry, hosting a lifestyle show on BTV. In addition to being a brilliant host and MC (I’ve had the pleasure of bearing witness to her skills), the young lady from Ramotswa holds a degree in International Relations & Psychology which she completed at WITS University and is a former beauty Queen as well.
In 2015 Mookodi was crowned Miss Africa Botswana and was set to represent Botswana at the continental Miss Africa pageant when an unfortunate clash of victories occurred. During her reign as Miss Africa BW she participated in another pageant and was crowned 1st Princess, which was apparently contrary to her agreement with the Miss Africa pageant organizers. In the ensuing debacle she subsequently had to step down as the Miss Africa BW Queen, but that minor setback clearly didn’t stop her shining in any way.
Since leaving the show she seemingly hasn't missed a beat, recently hosting Fashion Without Borders alongside Thapelo Mokoena.
Peelo becomes the second Motswana to come close to joining the SABC 3 team after Kaone Kario was eliminated in the Top Billing presenter search in the top 10 back in 2010.
