After the SundayWorld published that YFM’s popular afternoon-drive DJ, Dineo Ranaka was being axed by youth radio-station, YFM due to the negative publicity she had gotten, the soon-to-be-EX-DJ took to Twitter to clear the air:

Tell ’em why you mad son!

Dineo stunned her fans with her next tweet:

I am glad that Dineo had the heart let her fans know rather than just keeping it on the hush. I’m sure that it was a tough decision to make and then to share publicly.

The SundayWorld quoted Dineo‘s manager Vaughn Eaton:

“With lots of speculation making its rounds, Dineo Ranaka,’s Club 808 host, is leaving radio after seven years [at the end of March]. After a memorable stay at 5FM, to weekend breakfast at YFM and the ever popular Dineo Live on Drive show at YFM for the last three years, she believes that she needs a break from radio.”

I am super sad that Dineo will not be on radio anymore because she is very talented.  But I’m sure she got other ventures going on….

Rumors have it that another DJ, Tholi B will take over from the “first lady of drive” as of 1st April. I cannot wait for the full line-up of the new YFM slots and to see if any new talent has joined YFM. We’ll keep you guys in the know!!

Wishing Dineo Ranaka all the best in her new ventures and I am sure that we will be hearing and seeing her somewhere soon…
