Meet Simon Bechus
Simon Bechus hails from the City of Gold but built his career in Dubai.
At the age of 21, Simon made his way to the UAE and beat out over 500 hopefuls to land his first television presenting gig; cooking alongside celebrities. Here he rubbed shoulders with Princes, Sheiks and Elton John!
Simon worked for a variety of tv channels while in Dubai and became a regular on the DJ circuit when he landed the afternoon show on national Radio 1. Simon hosted the number 1 Afternoon show in the UAE four years running and went on to host the drive show for the next 4 years.
Relishing every opportunity that came his way Simon played opening and closing sets for the likes of Satoshi Tomiee, Steve Lawler, Bob Sinclar, Paul Oakenfold, Seb Fontaine and Sasha Digweed.
And as if that wasn’t enough, Simon hosted massive events, welcoming world-renowned artists on stage, namely Sophie Ellis Bextor, Akon, 50Cent, Nelly and Chris Brown.
Now that Simon is back on South African soil, he can be heard starting the party on Magic828 Music Radio Friday nights 9pm-midnight, Saturdays 8pm-midnight and Sundays 2-5pm.
