- Radio host, Mo Flava, will take over the breakfast show on Metro FM from Monday, 5 August
- Flava will be joined with his former team from The Drive with Metro
- The Kings Suite will take over the afternoon drive from 3pm to 6pm
After much anticipation and speculation, Metro FM finally announced earlier today that Mo Flava will take over the breakfast show from Monday, 5 August.
There have been many rumours on social media suggesting who the DJ Fresh’s replacement would be. Some thought Jub Jub or Ntsiki Mazwai, and even Mo Flava.
This follows Metro FM’s axing of DJ Fresh from the show last month for using the word “msunery” on air while responding to a listener. He was reported to the BCCSA and was taken off air for more than four weeks.
Metro FM has changed the name of the breakfast show too. It will now be called ‘Morning Flava’ and will run from 5am to 9am. The show will focus on keeping listeners entertained, informed and ready to tackle the day ahead.
Mo will move over to Metro FM, along with his team, Pearl Shongwe on news and Owen Hannie on sports, while Moshe Ndiki will join the team every Friday.
The radio host was previously on the afternoon drive called The Drive on Metro, which will now be hosted by The Kings Suite between 3pm to 6pm.
The Kings Suite comprises ‘Sphectacula and DJ Naves as hosts, Relebogile Mabotja on news and Angie Khumalo on sports.
All other shows, including the daytime line-up, will remain the same.
Meanwhile, two months ago, Briefly.co.za reported that Mo Flava was forced to defend himself after getting backlash over Masechaba Ndlovu's interview with Babes Wodumo. It's believed Masechaba got fired over the interview, and fans feel Mo Flava should have stood up for her.
Mo Flava got cornered on social media over the interview that his former co-host on Metro FM, Masechaba Ndlovu, had with controversial musician, Babes Wodumo.
Masechaba's interview apparently led to her dismissal by the radio station (at least, that's what fans are convinced happened), and Mo Flava was asked why he didn't stand up for her.
