Reality Waves is an online radio station intended to accommodate the student and post graduate market of South Africa; making employment and financial freedom its priority.

“We are betting that the quality of our content and strength of our reputations will get people over the relatively low hurdle of listening to online radio”, said Thapedi.

The road to the dream becoming true was also a steep one as the two inspiring dream-chasers, had to face all kinds of rejection amongst their idea being leaked several times. “Having approached a potential investor at first, we got to one government funding institution to the realisation that the very idea had been presented to them, that although it was the same, our research had more information. Ours being declined meant more substance for the one submitted before us; that we found out as we made a random visit to the institution; which obviously meant we should restart and restructure the entire idea. Our flop was that we would approach individuals we thought would invest in the idea and trust them more than we did with government institutions”, Thapedi added.

This Project has been making a lot of young people excited as this is one project that will represent most areas in their lives. Beyond that, this will surely reveal how much talent Limpopo has in different measures.

The collaboration between Thapedi Kgole, Mulondo Nethengwe and Orbit Media is yet to make education fashionable and make employment easy. “It was upon that realisation that we were introduced to Orbit Media, mid 2017, who showed major interest in this enormous project. We spent another 8-10 months ensuring its feasibility and sustainability. This is the actual reason why we are betting the quality of our content and strength of our reputations will get people over the relatively low hurdle of listening to online radio”.

Kgole also highlighted that Reality Waves is more than just an online radio station; it is a media house, an incubation hub that prioritises youth empowerment and financial freedom to the core. Though we have radio as our sole business, more subsidiaries are to emerge.

The website will be up and running from 25 May, and people can stream directly from the website for just 20MB per hour. The official launch will be on June 05, 2018 and people can surely get in contact with the station on every social media platform as Reality Waves.
