LootLove & DJ Speedsta Replace Kings Of The Weekend
Metro FM seems to have done some damage control after the whirlwind of resignations that plagued the urban radio station in the last few months. The last talent to leave the station was the Kings of the Weekend duo, DJ Naves and Sphectacula.
The pair, who resigned from the station last month, created shock waves in the land of radio after revealing that they’d be taking a break from radio to “focus on other things”.
Fans were devastated to hear of their departure and have been anxious to learn who the Saturday night replacements would be. Thanks to Luthando “Loot Love” Shosha, we’ve finally been taken out our misery.
The stunner broke the news on social media when she announced that she, together with DJ Speedsta, real name Lesego Nkaiseng, they would be taking over Saturday night radio on the station.
“It’s official, Loot Love and DJ Speedsta bring you Absolute Hip Hop every Saturday 6-10pm on Metro FM,” captioned King Loot on the Metro FM emblem image posted.
Scores of fans sent their congratulations to the personality including stars such as DJ Milkshake, Nomoozlie, Minnie Dlamini, DJ Warras, Nomzamo Mbatha and ofcourse her number one fan, the bae, Reason.
Speedsta, on the other hand, bid farewell to his YFM family in this emotional IG post yesterday:
I type this message with a very sore heart, unfortunately the lords timing can't be anticipated, You have to as a human being act in real time. In my third year as host of Hip Hop radio show "The Hip Hop Floor" & Hip Hop Chart show "The Hip Hop Hot 99" along with "YTKO" mix Friday's resident. After long thought and nothing but great moments when I sit and think about the time I had in the red building. 😂❤️ I have decided to let the lord do his work and lead me to the next chapter in my life. To all the Yires, GP's Koolest, East Rand special S/O to you guys – You have been riding with the 99.2 Frequency since day one, All the academics that walked into a big building with no idea of what everything they've ever wanted to do looks like to now hearing you on air, or bumping into you either upstairs or in a tech room, Fifi in the room filled with lots of people always because of the amount of love you have for human beings, Bra Ish with his always welcoming personality when you walk into the building, so many people to mention. Everyone at YFM, Thank you so much!!! It is time for me to spread my wings, forever in my heart!!! ❤️ #WhatsNextIsAllThatMatters
Peeps took to Twitter to share in their love and excitement at the news.
