Dineo Ranaka exits Metro FM after four years of being active on the air. The star went through different phases with the station, as we witness how she got suspended for doing the Umlando challenge at the workspace, to resuming work after a few days off. In an official statement released this Tuesday, her last show on air will be on Friday, 17th, June 2022.

The star hosted “The Bridge” with her team and she’s grateful to SABC for the opportunity given her over the past four years.

Dineo says she has had a fulfilling time hosting The Bridge with her team and she is profoundly grateful to the SABC and listeners for the support they have provided her throughout the years.

“The road does not end here for Dineo in radio. Details pertaining to her new radio home will be shared in due course. She will also take this time to work on her music career and the OpenID podcast. Following the warm reception Ukhona featuring Nokwazi received from her fans, Ranaka plans to release her second single in July 2022,” the statement says.

“My time at Metro FM has been nothing short of amazing and adventurous. I have enjoyed both my relationship with management, colleagues, listeners, as well as advertisers. It has truly been beautiful,” she says.

“An opportunity to expand myself has been presented to me and it was one I couldn’t resist.”

Not long ago, Dineo was suspended from the station for partaking in the #Umlando challenge, a dance craze that had people winding their hips to the song Umlando in different environments. Dineo did the challenge at work on furniture at the SABC studio in Auckland Park which landed her in hot water and suspended her for a few weeks.

Despite the rollercoaster ride at Metro FM, Dineo will miss the freedom to be herself on the airways.
