“Hailing from Limpopo’s Capricorn FM, she hosted and produced her previous radio show which is a testament to her dynamism.

“Despite housing some of South Africa’s most talented and recognisable on-air presenters, Metro FM is equally committed to identifying talent that is notable and set to impact the industry,” the statement continued.

“Through its latest addition, the station will continue to position itself as South Africa’s number one urban radio station, delivering on fresh and compelling content as well as on-trend music. The station is confident that through her star quality, energy and dynamism, Ndivho will resonate with its listeners.”

In a short reaction on her social media platforms, Makhwanya also expressed delight at the major move.
