It appears hosts of the new Metro FM show have a long way to go before listeners warm up to them.
It’s been a week since Whose Show Is It Anyway debuted on Metro FM. The show is hosted by the flamboyant Somizi Mhlongo, alongside Khanyi Mbau and Ntombi Ngcobo. The group took over Moflava and Lerato Kganyago’s timeslot following a programme reshuffle at the station.
Fans waited in anticipation to hear the #WSIIA team on air. But, it seems it’s not going according to plan. Listeners have taken to social media to voice their unhappiness about the show. Twitter was flooded with comments about how loud all three presenters sound, with one saying, “They are not meant for radio”. Some have recalled the #Openuptheindustry campaign.

However, not all is lost as it seems there are people who are going to stick it out and allow the presenters to settle in their new role.
Somizi, known for being vocal, took to Instagram and said, "If you stop wondering 'what are they going to say and think about what makes me happy', that is the first key to success, everything else will fall into place. Steady but surely. Will get there. Thanks for the support and critique everyone – it’s is important for my growth.”
