Nicky Fiona Greenwall was born on March 11, 1979 in Cape Town. She is a South African television producer and personality. She graduated from Rustenburg Girls High School with academic honours and later graduated second in her class from The Red And Yellow School Of Advertising where she had studied art direction in 1998.
She also embarked on a part-time acting career and landed leading roles in international commercials for Magnum Ice-cream, Burger King, and Denny as well as small roles in international film and TV projects in Cape Town.
Nicky also wrote and produced a sketch comedy series with long time friend and performer Ruth Barnes. The comedy series was called “TV” and it aired on Deadtime on e.tv in 1999.
In 2002 Nicky relocated from Cape Town to Johannesburg to kick start her career in television. She presented a proposal to e.tv suggesting how to improve their coverage of arts and entertainment news.
In September that year she was offered the position as Arts Anchor for E-News Live At 7. In October she was offered the opportunity to host a late night entertainment show called “Nightlife” which she also co-produced and wrote.
“Nightlife” aired in October 2002 and became one of the most watched late night programs in the country – covering hotspots and up and coming South African celebrities. In March 2004 the show moved to the prime time slot at 7:30 and went live.
In July 2004 Nicky resigned from e.tv so that she could relocate back to Cape Town where most of her friends and family still lived. In late 2004 e.tv offered Nicky the chance to reprise her role on “Nightlife” – from Cape Town.
