Legendary broadcaster Robert Marawa is officially headed to back to SABC Radio. Marawa who was involved in a contractual dispute with the broadcaster for a while now, confirmed today that the battle is over. “I see this as a continuation of a journey with the SABC and one that shows commitment from the leadership of the public broadcaster in fulfilling its public service mandate. This high level of support is important to me in delivering the kind of quality show that the listener deserves, and with the historic simulcast option, we hope rush-hour traffic frustrations will be a thing of the past,’ explains Marawa.

Marawa and SABC resolved the issue amicably and he will be back doing a sports show that will air simultaneously on Metro FM and Radio 2000 between 18h00 and 20h00 on weekdays.

”All contractual issues between the organisation and Mr Marawa have been resolved amicably and the SABC looks forward to having Mr Marawa back on board once again to deliver another dose of award-winning sports programming, as we grow our audiences and fulfill our mandate as a public service broadcaster,” SABC spokesman Kaizer Kganyago said in a statement earlier today.

We are looking forward to having Marawa back on our airwaves.

Somizi speaks out


Television and radio personality Somizi Mhlongo says people should stop saying bad things about African culture and call it names.

Somizi was speaking out about reports that some people had called musician Thandiswa Mazwai a ‘witch’ because she burns incense during her performances.

“We need to get to a place where you are proud (of your traditions) and bring light . For some musicians to go to the point of gossiping and saying that someone is a witch and using muti: Who are you bewitching when you are going to use your voice and your body?” he asked on the show he co-hosts with DJ Fresh on Metro FM The Fresh Breakfast.

“My ancestors have an appetite. I can afford to but them food every three months if I want to. Dear black brothers and sisters, it is okay to feed your ancestors whenever you want to,” he added.

Singer and dancer Babes Wodumo wants to start an Old age home. The ‘Wololo’ hit maker revealed her plans to start an old age home on Fresh Breakfast this morning.

The star said that her desire to start an old age home was inspired by how her mom’s side of the family used to encourage her to be a caregiver to old age homes when she was growing up. “I have already registered a Non Profit Organisation to kick this off as soon as I get the support I need,” Babes said.

As much as fame has been great Babes also revealed that she has had to adjust her life in many ways because of fame.

“I can’t go to clubs like I used to and dance like a ratchet. I can’t go anywhere, not even to the mall. Sometimes even when I’m with my family I can’t even eat. It is different,” Babes said explained on The Thabooty Drive on 5FM.

Babes was recently in the news after she parted ways with Public Relations company African Star Communications, but from the way things look, she is doing just fine.
