I am Obakeng, an accountant by day and wine enthusiast by night with a pleasantly soothing yet very versatile voice. I’m based in Johannesburg but I grew up in Rustenburg and studied in Cape Town.
I’m a 26 year old multi-talented woman currently working for a bank as I complete my training in chartered accountancy. I got into Voice overs as a student in 2017, I was looking for a change and something new to try and little did I know that myself and voice overs were a match made in heaven. That year as a birthday gift to myself I attended a voice over boot camp hosted by SAVOA, and it has been a whole lot of fun and adventure since.
As a young woman, I embrace my intellectual side, but I truly come alive as an artist. I enjoy storytelling and bringing creative vision to life using my voice. I also enjoy the challenge of stretching my voice capability to discover new ways of expressing myself and creating top quality voice content.
I have done a variety of corporate voice overs over the years that include old Mutual and Bonitas. Some of my favorites projects have been in collaboration with Bio oil and Nissan. I’m open to being part of an array of projects and I’m enthusiastic about what the wonderful world of voice overs has in store for me.
