Personal life history
Shahan Ramkisson is a South African Journalist who was born 3 February 1985 in Durban KwaZulu Natal. He is an Indian South African born news anchor on eNCA
He attended his higher education at Durban University of Technology where he obtained his degree in Journalism.
His passion for journalism was discovered after he wrote an article about bad things that were happening at his school. At the age 14, he wrote an article to Young Daily news. The article was about his school which withheld reports for learners who didn’t pay their school fees.
After the publication of the article, the Department of education intervened and the school principal was held responsible. Since from then, Shahan realized the power of journalism.
He started working on radio while still studying at the University. In 2007, he began his career with eNews as a field reporter. He began his career in PE before moving to Johannesburg to cover general news and, subsequently, politics. In 2013, he moved to another country to work.
Until 2016, he worked as a correspondent and anchor between New York and London. He returned to eNCA, where the rest of the story is still unfolding.
When the camera and mics are off, Shahan would turn on music and wind down.
“I love music, and I love dancing, even though I’m not sure I actually do the gwara gwara perfectly yet. Prince Kaybee, Dj Maphorisa, Busiswa, and Mafikizolo are just some of the artists on my playlist. I wake up to music and sleep to music,” he said.
