Major reshuffling going on at Metro FM following Tbo Touch’s resignation will see frenemies Somizi and Bonang M host back-to-back shows on the station.
It’s already a confirmed deal that Somizi and Khanyi Mbau will be hosting the morning drive show on Metro FM.
The duo are set to take over from Mo Flava and Lerato Kganyago who will now be doing the drive time show.
In order words, right after Somizi’s slot is over, his former bff, Bonang Matheba, will go on air. Now that’s close.
The radio station has been going through some major changes since Tbo Touch resigned last month.
Earlier speculations revealed Somizi would be joining SABC radio station, but the broadcaster refused to give out any details.
However, it’s now confirmed that the Idols SA host would be on the Metro.
Somizi who was originally set to fill another position was told to take over the morning slot at the last minute.
“There has been a lot of reshuffling. He was only told recently that he would be taking over the morning slot,” says an insider.
As revealed by TMG Entertainment exclusively on Thursday morning, Mo Flava and Lerato Kganyago will be taking over the afternoon drive slot. A move that will leave their morning spots open.
There were rumours that Ntombi Ngcobo will also be joining the morning show , but that has yet to be confirmed.
Meanwhile, SABC’s Kaizer Kganyago said the broadcaster is not ready to make any formal announcements yet concerning Somizi’s spot at the Metro.
The broadcaster promised to make it official when the time is ripe.
