Dhlomo began her media career as an award-winning television news and lifestyle anchor, followed by an eight-year stint as Editor of the women’s magazine True Love, during which she doubled the publication’s readership and circulation. In 2003, she was named one of the most influential women in South African media by The Media magazine.

Ndalo Media is a multi-platform media company that publishes DESTINY and DESTINY MAN magazines and websites. The company also consists of Ndalo Media Events and Contract Publishing, through which it publishes Sawubona, the in-flight magazine for South African Airways, among several other ventures.
