Tilo ngwana Rashaka Mokgopo
In the radio industry, being part of the Morning Breakfast show or Afternoon Drive show is prestigious. These two shows are dubbed ‘crowd pullers’ for many radio stations.
But unfortunately two top DJs at Thobela FM have been moved from these precious slots into shoulder holders.
Mankoko ‘Baby’ Mokhari, who previously co-presented the morning drive show with Sebasa Mogale and Thabo wa Mo Africa, who produced the afternoon drive show at the station have been moved to the early hours time slot.
Mankoko baby now presents Naledi ya meso while Thabo wa Mo Afrika produces the show from 3 am to 6 am. This could be seen as many people as a demotion in comparison to their previous shows.
Mankoko has since been replaced by a new comer, Nkgadimeng Kekana as the c0-presenter of Ditlalemeso.
Perhaps one question ought asking is whether these reshuffling are aimed at demoting top DJs or the station is simply moving them into different time slots to help attract more listeners?
