Kaya 959 Gets a Line-Up Refresher

The final quarter of the year promises to be an exciting one for Afropolitans as we proudly announce a few changes to our line-up. Coming off the back of  a powerful year, which saw us being named the Commercial Station of the Year— Kaya 959 is committed to reinvention and quality that puts us at the forefront of radio broadcasting.

Some of these changes to our line-up came into effect last month with the new look Kaya Breakfast show, which saw seasoned broadcaster Thabiso Sikwane and comedian Jason Goliath joining David O’Sullivan on weekday mornings between Monday and Thursday. Listeners also got the opportunity to enjoy an additional hour of Karibu with Mike Siluma, which in its Thursday evening extension replaced Life with Kojo.

This month further  sees  a variety of new and refreshed shows designed to elevate a collection of tastemakers set to showcase the best that radio has to offer.

EARLY MORNINGS WITH SOTHO MEYER 

Afropolitan listeners face a range of challenges that could make confronting each day difficult. Early Mornings with Sotho Meyer ensures that you start your day on an inspired note. The show plays a range of uplifting spiritual music to get you ready for whatever may lie ahead. Join Sotho Meyer every Monday – Friday from 05h00 -06h00 as she gives you the start to your day that you need.

MY MONEY AND ME WITH SUMITRA NYDOO

Esteemed business journalist Sumitra Nydoo brings the latest insights in personal finance, helping listeners lead happier and wealthier lives. Every week on My Money and Me, Nydoo finds the unique link between money and self-improvement, ensuring valuable lessons that are accessible to everyone. Tune in every Tuesday between 20h00-21h00.

LATE NIGHTS WITH BIG BLACK 

Late Nights with Big Black is the perfect way to wind down to expertly selected music. With years of experience behind him, Big Black will bring his definitive voice and taste in soul music to the discerning Afropolitan listener looking for nostalgic moments and open to exploring new sounds. However one chooses to ease into their evening, Late Nights promises to be a much-needed companion every Monday to Wednesday from 21h00-24h00.

THE BEST T IN THE CITY #PLATINUMFRIDAYS 

The Best T in the City is back with a new twist: #PlatinumFridays. Each Friday, Afropolitans can expect TBose to ring in the weekend with the best premium sounds while interviewing interesting thought leaders with a focus on the more light-hearted aspects of life. Broadcasting after Good Friday with Skhumba and Ndumiso, #PlatinumFridays will maintain the laid back and fun energy of that show and provide a seamless flow into Kayasette with Proverb. Tune into #PlatinumFridays from 09h00-12h00.

WHATS WRONG WITH GROOVIN? 

New to the weekend, WHAT IS WRONG WITH GROOVIN? is curated by DJ Kenzhero and Tha_Muzik. The platform seeks to recalibrate and reimagine the history of Africa and her people with creative meaning. WHAT IS WRONG WITH GROOVIN? ’ is inspired by a Hugh Masekela composition, performed and popularised by Letta Mbulu, which elevates the immanent need for freedom in all human beings. The show is  compiled and presented in an audio documentary fashion. Tune in on Sundays between 14h00-18h00.

Kaya 959’s MD Greg Maloka reflects on these new changes.

At the back of winning Commercial Radio Station of the Year, we had plans around how we wanted to evolve the brand, and some conversations we wanted to solidify so if you think about the expansion of Karibu, as the home of the Afropolitan, that platform is important to us. We had initially brought in Kojo Baffoe to help us address issues around manhood through Life with Kojo, which he pioneered. Extending Karibu allows us to make those issues more continental. That is also something we see in WHATS WRONG WITH GROOVIN? , curated by DJ Kenzhero and Tha_Muzik. WHAT IS WRONG WITH GROOVIN? is a confluence of many impulses and gives us the opportunity to have a musical conversation about the journey of the freedom of Africa. We are very excited about being able to have a platform that draws from the words of Malcolm X, Miriam Makeba, Steve Biko, as well as the thoughts of many young activists of this day.

 Sotho Meyer comes in the morning. In a country where thousands of women wake up at the crack of dawn to prepare themselves and their families for a new day – whether in the suburbs or the townships – what are the conversations at that time of the morning? Having done exceptionally well with her weekend show focusing on children’s activities, Sotho is a wonderful addition to this morning slot. We loved what Shane Ngwenya brought to the space. That spiritual vibe was important: now we feel that it is time to take it to the next level.

Influential Fridays brought some interesting people to the platform, and was to a large degree successful. TBose’s weekday show is one of our most loved on the station and we wanted to merge those together for Platinum Fridays, bringing in a premium selection of  lounge, house and soul music on a Friday afternoon.

With My Money and Me, we understood that personal finance is a very deep issue. We also found  that there is a particular skill required for someone to have personal conversations and advice you on money – something that Thuli Magubane understood and she was the foundation for something important. We are excited to have Sumitra Nydoo taking this on as she understands the overall business philosophy at Kaya.
