Listeners of 947 Breakfast Club can breathe a sigh of relief as breakfast host Anele Mdoda confirmed that she won’t be joining Metro FM. Anele who’s been doing the show since 2017 is not leaving her breakfast show.

Since the departure of DJ Fresh from the station, speculation has been that Mo Flava is being eyed for that spot. However, another rumour has been that Anele might also replace Fresh.

Anele quickly poured cold water into the rumour with just one word when a fan asked her on Twitter.

“Anele is joining Metro FM”

The media personality was recently announced as the host of E! Africa alongside comedian Jason Goliath and TV presenter Ayanda Thabethe for a Celebrity Game Night show.

DJ Fresh has announced that he will be joining the 947 family as the host of the drive time show. He will be on air for this first show on 1 August.

He left Metro FM allegedly after not seeing eye to eye with the public broadcaster. “The termination follows unsuccessful engagements between SABC radio Management and Mr. Thato Sikwane, subsequent to his usage of offensive language on-air,” the SABC explained in a statement.

Fresh disputed the statement made by his former employer that he didn’t want use the opportunity to remedy the situation. He said he had agreed to apologise unreservedly. He had since apologised through his own statement and announced that he’ll be starting a new chapter on 1 August.
