He has big shoes to fill when he takes over the 'Breakfast Express' which used to be the Cup of Java microphone but Mathew Kapofi  aka Mappz is not your ordinary radio presenter and has already made a name for himself as radio producer, TV host, singer and songwriter, entrepreneur and most wanted Emcee. 

Nalebrity caught up with the man himself this weekend to shed more light on his 15-year career which he has kicked off with a gig at Unam Radio in 2007 and the new things he plans for the  Breakfast Express Crew, which airs Mondays and Fridays between 7:00 and 9:00 on NBC national radio station on 92.6.

“I was always fascinated by way the radio presenters spoke on radio, interviewed a lot of famous people and play the latest music to the listeners. So as I was working on my music, I wanted to incorporate that as well, not knowing how far the two were going to take me,” Mapps relates.

He soon moved on to 99FM where he entertained and mesmerised listeners on the Breakfast Show with Che  and well as the late afternoon show Nightfall which aired between 15:00  and 18:00 for six straight years.

“I loved my team and the way we executed outside broadcasts as well as how we came up with fun content,” he quipped. 

His career also includes being a TV host for Legends of Change an inspirational show screened on NBC as well as the Breakfast Express with Sepiso  and Paul.

Given his resume and the fact that he religiously listened to the Cup of the Java show, it has certainly paved the way to him landing the job as the new Cup of Java presenter Mappz believes.
