A LOT has happened since the last time I posted in here. Let me take you back a little: the MTN Radio Awards took place a few months ago at the Sandton Convention Centre, for those who don’t know yet, the South African mobile operator MTN has pulled the plug on the awards. I have no idea what this means for the future of the awards. Remember when MTN pulled out of the SAMAs? Thixo let’s hope this is not the last time I get to write about the awards.
Radio changes happened at big stations across the rainbow land, as it is the case every year. This saw new kid on the block 5FMs Nick Hamman kicking Sureshnie Rider’s butt as the host of the station’s top 40 chart show. Does this mean Mrs Rider is on her way out? Oh oh, before all that KB bid the station farewell a month or two before the changes. Anathi Seyisi is now on air 5 days a week on YFM. So proud of my bae-friend. Catch her between midnight and 3am.
It’s been confirmed (sort of) that DJ Sbu is starting his own radio station following the boot at Metro FM. All the best Mr 2020. There’s no denying that Sbu is a real hustler, I respect his ‘struggle’. Speaking of Metro FM, did I tell you that they now have almost all of Mzansi’s A-listers on their line-up? Pearl Modiadie, Lerato Kganyago, Sammy Sosa, MoFlava and others LMAO, you know when there’s an event and they only mention the important acts then say ‘and many more’ at the end? I just had that moment there LOL, please allow.
Anywho all those personalities are now Metro FM family. There’s been SO much happening while I was away, I cannot get through everything, but will sure keep you on the loop. Say no to those weird soup combos they could be deadly, keep warm.
