Sequel to the news about his resignation from 5FM, it has been confirmed that DJ Euphonik has joined the crew at 947.
BuzzSouthAfrica gathered that Euphonik and Milkshake handed in their resignation about two weeks ago.
Euphonik’s resignation birthed speculations that he would be joining 947 (formerly Highveld 94.7). However, sources at 5FM insisted that he was leaving radio entirely to focus on other business ventures. Well, turns out they were wrong.

It’s now official that DJ Euphonik has moved over to team 947. The DJ will be hosting a new show, eUNITE, every Sunday night between 6pm and 8pm. Also, just after 18:00 every Friday, he will also do a weekend mix on the Afternoon Drive with Anele Mdoda.
Meanwhile, 947 team welcomes the DJ with open arms, adding that it’s a major score for the station.
“Euphonik is a massive brand. Him leaving 5FM was a major loss but our gain.”
In response to the new gig Euphonik said:
“My years at 5FM presented an amazing journey but the time has come to open a new chapter, starting with 947.”
Was DJ Euphonik Fired?
However, it’s not yet clear on what grounds he left 5FM. Was it a mutual and peaceful agreement between both parties or was there a disagreement? His dramatic exit sure leaves fans wondering if he has been axed or is moving his career to the next level.
An insider described Euphonik’s resignation as a big loss to 5FM. Over the years, the radio jock has become a crucial part of the 5FM brand, acting as a strong pull for audience figures.
“He was the best club DJ at the station and now he is gone. It’s a big loss to 5,” said the insider. Meanwhile, Euphonik did not quite acknowledge that the rumours about his departure from the public broadcaster were true.
