Sebastian Gowaseb joined One Africa TV, a subsidiary of TribeFire Studios, in 2009 as a production assistant. He worked his way up in the organisation and joined the executive team at TribeFire Studios on 1 July.

Gowaseb holds a bachelor’s degree in journalism and media technology and an honours in communications from the Namibian University of Science and Technology (NUST). He is a seasoned editor, animator and graphic designer. Gowaseb takes over leading the team from Jaco Jansen van Rensburg.

While celebrating the new appointment, TribeFire Studios also thanked Van Rensburg, who coached Gowaseb as his understudy and contributed greatly to TribeFire Studios’ journey since his appointment in 2019.

“Our purpose at TribeFire Studios is to fire up minds for positive change. Sebastian is a skilled Namibian and passionate leader, who also believes in using media as a force for good. I am very excited about his future and impact in this new role,” Stefan Hugo, the CEO of TribeFire Studios, said.

Taleni Shimhopileni, a director at One Africa TV, said: “I am very proud to have a long-serving, competent leader join the executive team and continue to help implement the vision of TribeFire Studios for Namibia and Africa.”

Passion for media

Gowaseb has a passion for media and is excited to take on the leadership role.

“I am very honoured and delighted to have been granted an opportunity of a lifetime to inspire, share ideas and collaborate with a group of young people who are hungry about telling unique African stories. I am fired up to further grow the TribeFire Studios production unit as a hub of creative solutions, skilled content producers and authentic storytellers.”

The team also expressed their delight with Gowaseb’s appointment as they have worked alongside him over the years.

Maggie Forcelledo, news editor of #TodayOnOne, said: “It's an absolute pleasure working with Sebastian. He is very professional, hardworking, a problem solver and an excellent communicator.

Working with him for the past four years and now having the opportunity to work more closely with him has been and will continue to be an honour. I would like to wish him all the best in his new position".
