She is one of the most humble and hardworking personalities we have in the game. Things that others have to learn come easy to her including being a host and drive of an event. The chic and poised MC has scored one of the biggest gigs which is to host the upcoming fourth edition of the Regional Annual Sports Awards (RASA). The sports awards will see over nine African countries represented at the awards that will be held in the capital city Windhoek on the 25th May.

The RASA is the African Union Sport Council Region 5 celebration of excellence in sports by celebrating athletes and sports journalists.
The news was announced on the social media accounts of RASA with the caption

"RASA 2019 Presenter Announcement: @Uejaasassy. Born and bred in Windhoek, Namibia's Uejaa has been in the entertainment industry for the past 12 years," read the caption.

Uejaa who has acknowledged that she has a huge job which will likely come as a breeze to her said that she is excited to be part of the team that celebrates African talent.

Uejaa has been in the entertainment industry for over 10 years where her journey began as a news reader at the Katutura Community Radio Station which is now known as Base FM. She managed to work her way up to eventually hosting the NAMAs in 2011 with no live TV skills.

Today she has hosted some of the biggest awards including the MTC Premiership Awards which is the biggest celebration of the Namibian Premier league, as well as the MTC/Namibia Sports Commission Awards in 2017. She took to the stage at the 2017 NAMA awards that are dubbed as the most successful to date where Uejaa was one of the main hosts alongside one of the best in the game in Africa, Bonang Matheba.
