RADIO presenter Bongani Mtolo says he wants to thank all his listeners and fans for the support they have given him over the years. Mtolo, who hails from Bisley and presents The Drive on East Coast Radio with Mags (Mags Westerhof) from 3 pm to 6 pm every Monday to Friday, will be hosting an event called the Bongani Mtolo Experience on October 25 at Views in Durban. Speaking to Echo, Mtolo said he launched the experience in 2018 as a way of giving back to his listeners, saying: “When the Bongani Mtolo Experience started last year, I wanted to create an event where people who have been part of my journey, who listen to the show, can actually hang out with me. It’s a way of saying thank you.“I go into different places with the aim of trying to reach all my listeners and to spend time with them. “I have won the best drive presenter in South Africa award at the Liberty Radio Awards two years in a row and that is because of my amazing listeners who have always been supportive. So, the Bongani Mtolo Experience is a way for me to give back,” he said. Mtolo revealed that he will be visiting Pietermaritzburg in November. The details of the event will be released soon. “When I was young I met Bhodloza Nzimande, who was with Ukhozi FM at the time, and that sparked my interest in radio. Since then it has always been my dream to be on radio,” said Mtolo.
