The famous Arabian tale goes something like this………Aladdin rubbed the lamp three times, out popped a ‘Genie’ and granted him three wishes. In today’s story, Cape Town’s very own Jeannie D is granting her own wishes and certainly making them come true. The stars are the limit for this girl…

Born and bred in Johannesburg, Jeannie knew from a young age that performing was her forte; as soon as she turned 12, she auditioned at The National School of the Arts (drama) and honed in on her acting and vocal skills. She accomplished and successfully managed to secure a number of lead roles in several theatre productions and a variety of commercials – such as inflight videos and as a poster girl for SAA. At 18 she enrolled at RAU where she studied a BA in Communications, joined the campus radio station Rau Radio, and managed to win the Miss Rau competition in 2002, all in a short period of time.

Looking for a new challenge, Jeannie packed her bags and relocated to the Mother City. With acting and radio experience under her belt, she happened to be in the right place at the right time when Good Hope FM was looking for new talent. Jeannie started off on the graveyard shift on a weekend slot as well as a daytime news reader – and within two months was given one of the top shows in radio -  The Jeannie D Show.

She has fulfilled her dream by working in two of her favourite mediums.  She is best known as the husky sensual voice on Good Hope FM whereby the city had the opportunity to tune into an energetic show every Monday to Friday for four hours, from 6pm to 10pm. She left in September 2006 to pursue her television career full time. As the only lady in the dynamic DIY team of Janez, herself and Aidan, she lends a touch of glamour to what has always traditionally been the domain of men, and can take the boys on in whatever handiwork they set out to do.
