Geared towards the modern South African woman with articles on topics that include fashion, beauty, weddings, careers and relationships, the W24 team keeps their finger on the pulse of the latest information to help women reach their highest potential.

Nthabi Nhlapo has worked at Media24 for just more than 15 years (with an 18-month break in between), having worked for regional newspapers, magazines and now digital media as editor of W24.

In her other life, she attained a BCom degree but journalism has always been her first love. So, she found herself at Wits University, where she graduated with an honours in journalism and media studies. She is currently in the final stages of her master’s degree in the same field.

She loves doggie cuddles, creative and DIY discoveries, music and, as any Gemini can attest, a million other things. But, top of the list is waking up every day to log on to W24 and interact with women from all corners of life. She counts herself truly fortunate to be able to call her top hobby her job!
