Martin Bester was born in Bethal in Mpumalanga but he grew up in Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape. The radio and television personality has been active for more than twenty years in the entertainment industry.
He began his career in the broadcast industry as an undergraduate student studying psychology and isiXhosa. That was when he joined the campus radio station of the erstwhile University of Port Elizabeth. And from there, he got an opportunity to work with Algoa FM.
In the process, he got an offer to host a show on Jacaranda FM, which is the largest commercial radio station in South Africa. As an award-winning presenter, he has anchored several television shows, including “Wie’s my Liefie”. Also, he dubs as an MC, actor, and musician. His music career has taken him to several places, and he has equally featured in different notable events such as KKNK in Oudshoorn and Innibos in Mbombela.
Bester is a fantastic singer, no doubt. As an Afrikaans singer and lead vocalist, the lyrics of his songs are inspiring and entertaining. Even if you do not understand the Afrikaans language, the unique rhythms that his tracks come with are unusual and will almost instantly make you fall in love with the language. So far, the radio veteran has released an album titled “Vir Die Eerste Keer”.
His label is the popular Universal Music (Pty) Ltd, a multinational music recording and publishing company. Universal Music South Africa is part of the Universal Music Group.
The Afrikaans singer is quite private about his love life.
