The owner and founder of Blesser Malkah TV (BMTV), an online channel on YouTube, Facebook and Instagram, Malkah describes herself as someone who has an interest in media and social media. “It is ironic I am not that much into social media as I am being an actress and host. I did however become serious about media and social media a few years ago,” she said. “I was given a few responsibilities in my church ministry that involve media which I took very seriously and now I am hooked completely,” said the 22 year old.

She started her TV channel after finding out what she could and enjoys doing. “I was inspired when I found out the things I could do like taking good pictures and how I appreciate good graphics. I thought I should start something,” Malkah said. “I started by taking pictures of myself, uploading them and I received a lot of comments so I thought I could do more so I began studying people online and I found it to be a very interesting area. I decided to register my company name, I did my branding here we are today,” she explains.

“Being in front of the camera is a great opportunity for me. I enjoy the fact that I can express myself to my audience. It is one thing to have something to say and it is another thing to be able to say it and express it.”

Based in Windhoek, Malkah grew up in Windhoek and Los Angeles in the United States of America. “I do come home to Namibia quite often and I have been home for a while now,” she said. Malkah is a traveller and has been to countries such as Dubai, Germany, Nigeria, South Africa, Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Ethiopia and India.

“I am reaching out to the youth. I actually want to let them know that anything is possible. I want to let them know that you can be a Christian and still be on social media without compromising your Christianity,” she explained.

She explains that she does face a lot of challenges. “My online channel is just not on YouTube. It is on Instagram and Facebook as well. The number one struggle is producing content that is of great quality.”

“I also discuss different topics like where do I get my clothing from, how to rock mens’ clothing and what to carry in your purse. So basically I help you get the best products and promote companies to be the best.”

Ifeoma Francis, chief executive officer (CEO) of OneQ hair and accessories is one of the brands that Malkah has worked with. “I met Blesser in December 2017 when I received a call from a friend that I needed to supply her with some synthetic hair. I agreed to partner with her because she is very optimistic. She has so much drive as a young woman and I must say she inspires me,” Francis said.

Currently in India to learn more about multimedia, she plans on working on something big for mainstream television.
