Pabi Moloi Opens Up About Previously Being Broke! She is one of the most consistent media personalities of our time, killing it on TV, radio and as an MC.
But before she became the household name she is now, Pabi was working as an intern trying to get her big break in the industry.In a recent interview on Metro FM, Pabi opened up about the difficult times when she was broke.
“I got stuck, out of petrol, on the highway. I will never forget. I happened to scrap together 5,6,7, R10, walked down on the highway and got a 2 litre bottle of petrol. I got it in my car and went to work. One of the guys at work gave me R60 and then I was able to borrow a couple of hundred from my aunt until payday,” she said.
Of the experience, Pabi says she was going through what every other young person goes through when interning. Being paid very little to nothing at all.
“I think I was just underpaid. We’ve heard about all these people who are complaining about internships, unpaid internships, where you go in and pretty much do a full day of work for a stipend, but still be expected to travel there every day. It is ridiculous to expect somebody to do that.”
