“Makosi Today” is an award-winning lifestyle show hosted by journalist, life-coach, cancer survivor, and God-fearing African woman Makosi Musambasi, filmed on-location in Dubai.

Formerly a registered nurse and Big Brother (UK) contestant, today Makosi is now a media entrepreneur, whole-person influencer, public speaker, and health advocate based in the United Arab Emirates.

“My heart is to continue to grow, learn, adapt, and strive to be the best possible version of myself that God intended for me to be, and along the way, help influence others to achieve that same level of personal success and freedom.”


Makosi has spoken publicly on many social topics and issues at various conferences all over the world (Dubai, Harare, Johannesburg, Abuja, and Cambridge University) raising awareness about breast cancer, emotional intelligence, and communication as it relates to humanity and self-love. Most importantly, she credits her faith and her family for the person she is today. Motivated by her own experiences and research, Makosi reaches out to others through her foundation SistersKeeper—a non profit organization focusing on the welfare and development of the African girl-child.
