Cape Town - It was announced on Monday that DJ Fresh, whose real name is Thato Sikwane, will be joining the radio station 947.

The DJ's contract with Metro FM was terminated after he used inappropriate language on-air and allegedly failed to "remedy his contractual breaches," according to a statement released by the SABC.

After leaving Metro FM, DJ Fresh appeared on Newzroom Afrika's (DStv 405) Breakfast Dawn, following reports that he has signed a contract with Khaya FM.  

But the cat, or rather the dog, is finally out of the bag! 


The DJ will host 947's new Drivetime Show, which will be called Fresh on 947. 

DJ Fresh will be joined by familiar 947 voice, Mantsoe Pout who will be his co-driver taking Joburg home after a long day.

Current hosts of the drive time show, The Greg & Lucky Drive, Greg Aldridge and Lucky du Plessis will remain part for the 947 family and will host a new weekend show. 

On what to expect from the show, Fresh said: "Listeners can expect a kick-ass team, kick-ass show, a lot of entertainment, laughter and finally being back on the radio."
