Mo Flava’s credibility and charisma secure him a job at 94.7. He’s replacing DJ Fresh and Euphonik
METRO FM’s favourite morning host, Mo Flava is apparently leaving the station to replace Euphonik and his bff, DJ Fresh at 94.7. Daily Sun reported that the fan-favourite DJ and TV presenter was contacted by 94.7 to replace the axed DJ’s.
According to Daily Sun’s sources at the station:
“They wanted someone who’ll redeem the station from recent rape drama that has been unfolding in the public recently. They feel their image has been dented. After long discussions they agreed Mo Flava was the perfect man for the job.
He’s been in the radio industry for many years and has never been involve in any scandal, even at the SABC. And the fact that he’s a respected DJ also played a part because they had to get someone who could make listeners forget about the whole rape debacle. Having him there was the obvious choice.
Come end of March, he won’t be with Metro Fm any more when he starts his new journey with 97.7, which he’s excited about. While this is a new chapter for him, it’s also going to be a challenge because of what happened. But he’s a solid DJ do he has the ability to restore the stations public image.”
Although sources have assured Daily Sun that the station has identified Mo Flava as their afternoon drive host, Primedia’s publicity manager, Keagile Makgoba didn’t confirm the news when she was contacted.
Makgoba stated: “A process is under way to identify a host for the 94.7 afternoon drive show. no decision has been taken and we continue to engage positivity with several candidates. Once an agreement has been reached, we’ll make an announcement.”
Fresh and Euphonik were axed from 94.7 after a woman revealed that the duo raped her at a party some years ago. Euphonik was also reported by tweets last weekend for allegedly faking a screenshot apology from Nampree which has since been deleted on Twitter.
Mo Flava has also secured a job on SABC 3’s weekday show, Trending SA alongside LootLove and Coconut Kelz.
