- Radio presenter Mo Flava was confused by a young listener as DJ Fresh on Metro FM's breakfast show
- But instead of getting irate, Mo Flava handled it with true professional sense
- Mo Flava expressed that he'd hope he'd be able to fill DJ Fresh's shoes one day
It’s never easy filling big shoes, but radio presenter, Mo Flava - who took over the Metro FM breakfast show - is doing a great job thus far.
However, Mo Flava showed great character when a young caller mistook Mo Flava for DJ Fresh on Tuesday morning. The DJ played it cool.
Instead of getting upset or harshly correcting the caller, or even slamming the phone down on air, Mo Flava was gentle in his response. He said: “One day maybe I’ll be Fresh.”
When a social media called him about what he had said on air, he acknowledged that listeners needed time to adapt to change, especially when they got so used to the regular personalities.
Mo Flava also acknowledged DJ Fresh as a talented presenter. He said “Fact is DJ Fresh is a hero, and people still need to get used to the new show. Big deal.”
Fans really appreciated his honesty and humility.
Just over a week ago, Briefly.co.za reported that after much anticipation and speculation, Metro FM finally announced that Mo Flava will take over the breakfast show from Monday, 5 August.
There had been many rumours on social media suggesting who 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.
