His journey into the media industry started in 2008 when he started Volunteering at SDA Radio as Presenter. He volunteered for five good years.
” l worked as a volunteer from 2008-2013. And my wife was the one financing the family which is against the African culture and tradition, a Man is suppose to source bread for the family not a woman,” said Gomani.
