love life & live to love
Zeeta Maharaj is a true music aficionado. It could be said that it is one of her greatest passions. With an undying love of music, Zeeta embarked on a journey – a journey that has set her on pace to discover and lay down the foundation to her future. She has been a purveyor of music to the masses any way that she can. Whether it be by print, television, radio or the Internet, Zeeta has been preparing for her true calling in the world of media and communications.
Born in the early 80’s and being the last of three girls, Zeeta has always strived for success. In 1997 at the tender age of 15, Zeeta and a partner started Vinyl Magazine. What started as a small, local music magazine grew over the years to become a national sensation. Zeeta knew that this was just the beginning of what was to come.
In 1999, Zeeta delved into radio broadcasting and joined the longstanding Masters At Work radio show on Montreal’s most popular community radio station, CKUT 90.3 FM. After six years, Zeeta was able to secure her own show at K103.7 FM Khanawake, entitled Vibrations. Vibrations was a true, eclectic reflection of its DJ. As “Mama Z”, Zeeta delivered exclusive local and international Hip-Hop, R&B, Reggae, Soca, Jazz and House through the airwaves to thousands of Montrealers.
Zeeta would go on to co-host Droppin’ Dimez on Toronto’s CKLN 88.1 FM and a popular Internet radio program, More Fyah Radio, on Concordia University’s CJLO Radio. As Zeeta was becoming a skilled radio broadcaster, she was also honing her writing as a regular contributor to music and community magazines in Montreal and Toronto. Along the way, Zeeta developed a passion for Canadian urban music and became an advocate for Canadian artists by exposing her audiences to their music.
Zeeta’s involvement in so many facets of media helped solidify her decision in 2005 to attend the National Institute of Broadcasting in Toronto and major in Radio and TV Broadcasting.
Besides being an avid and outspoken supporter of Canadian talent, Zeeta was instrumental in starting a spoken word series called P.E.A.C.E. – Positive Energy Always Creates Elevation, a name suitable for a selfless, self-starting, go-getter that makes it a fundamental rule to have like-minded, motivated people in her circle.
