Tweeps Weigh In On Skhumba’s New Radio Gig. A few days ago, Kaya FM launched it’s new lineup of extended shows. It was announced that, Tbose Mokwele, Unathi and Sizwe Dhlomo’s midweek shows will be extended. The talented trio will now be on air 5 days a week, from Mondays to Fridays.
There has been another major change at the station. Kaya FM announced on Wednesday it was dropping Kaya Breakfast hosted by David O’Sullivan, Thabiso Sikwane and comedian Jason Goliath, from 29 April. This could only mean one thing, that another show is coming in, with possible new hosts. To fill in the slot, Kaya has welcomed back Thomas Msengana, who recently exited Metro FM. The seasoned media personality will be joined by Skhumba Hlophe as they both host Thomas and Skhumba in the Morning, from Monday-Fridays, between 06:00-09:00 effective from 3rd of May 2021.
Msengana is making a comeback to Kaya, after having been with the radio station before. As for Shumba, he has been with Kaya for 7 years. The award winning comedian and media personality Skhumba co-hosted the Good Friday show, between 06h00 and 09h00. He brought his humor to tackle political issues, news, sports, and life in general.
As expected a lot of people shares their views on this massive move by Kaya FM. Many are happy for Msengana, that got a job immediately after leaving Metro FM. With Skhumba though, it is a whole lot of mixed feelings around listeners. Some are happy for him, whereas others feel they can’t have him on radio everyday.
