Bubbly writer, poet and presenter Anne Hambuda has pushed the pen for some of the top media houses in the country, and recently, she launched her own platform – Anne TV.

In a candid conversation with tjil, the Windhoek-based personality spoke about her new endeavour and the kind of content fans can expect on the platform.

Hambuda described Anne TV as a video projection of everything that goes on in her mind.

She said she always felt like there was too much going on in her personal life and career, and created the platform to share the “crazy experiences” her line of work has exposed her to.

“More than anything, this platform serves as a message that it's possible to live out your dreams even if you have done all this crazy stuff,” she said.



Sharing experiences

As a media personality, Hambuda has multiple platforms she makes use of to share content, however, she mentioned that Anne TV is less formal.

She added that it can be seen as an extended version of her Instagram Stories.

“I am always sharing long videos on my Stories of me talking, so I figured this would be a great platform to use and share my experiences and tips in show business.”

Having launched the platform early this month, Hambuda shared that the response has been overwhelmingly positive.



Power of your network

“You don't realise the power of your network until you are pushing content like this and I'm grateful to everyone who takes the time to watch and share my content.

“I didn't realise people would like the content this much and want more of it,” she said.

She revealed that one of the craziest experiences she's lived through was when she wore a T-shirt to the Namibian Annual Music Awards, and subsequently got 'trolled' for it.

“I was trolled heavy. There were even memes made about me. I trended on Twitter for that outfit! For the longest time, I used to be called Shirt Bae, but I was just like whatever, this is me and this is what I'm doing,” the unapologetic Hambuda said.



Honest stories

She also shared that curating content for Anne TV has given her insight into what people enjoy on social media, which is, ultimately, keeping it real.

“I realised that people are drawn to honest stories. It doesn't always have to be crazy and far-fetched.

“Sometimes the simplest real-life stories can really entice your audience,” she said.
