Carol Bouwer has been a household name since her days as a TV presenter and actress. She has come along way from her Buzz days and now can consider herself a master in front of and behind TV screens. She hosed women's variety talk show Motswako before serving as its producer. The show is now under her production company Carol Bouwer Productions - which she said is undergoing a transition. "I approached the company recently to say I don't like this show anymore and I want it to evolve to more strongly reflect who I am. I'm getting more and more involved with community work and I don't want a show which doesn't reflect that."
