In more entertainment news, Briefly News also reported that fans are not happy with Dineo Ranaka and Sol Phenduka's show. Many have alleged that Dineo Ranaka bosses Sol Phenduka around and cuts him while on air.

Peeps said they were not happy with the duo after tuning in to a few shows. Ranaka and Sol are the latest addition to the Kaya 959 family. The two replaced veteran broadcaster Thomas Msengana and comedian Skhumba Hlope, who were fired from the breakfast show as the ratings were dropping drastically and they were not attracting any major advertisers.

Fans headed to Twitter to share their thoughts on the presenters. They said Sol and Dineo are not a perfect match. Dineo has been accused of talking over Sol and not giving him a chance to speak during the show. Others even said it seems as if Sol is Dineo's assistant, not a co-host.
