Fresh used the word “msunery” in response to the listener’s comments on his show. The word is an adaptation of an isiZulu swear-word. DJ Fresh also lambasted another listener on 20 May, when he asked the listener to “stop tweeting from his ass”.

The radio DJ’s comments did not sit well with his audience, especially listener, Daniel Mokwa, who laid a complaint with the Broadcasting Complaints Commission of SA (BCCSA).
