Thursday the 28th of May 2020, marks the last day of Uncaptured hosted by Kgomotso Matsunyane and Ndumiso Ngcobo on Kaya 959, due to the ending of both parties’ contracts. Over the last three years the weekly show, broadcast Monday-Thursday at 15:00 to 17:00, has been a crucial part of the station’s national conversation with listeners by gathering perspectives and insights from the latest headlines and developments in politics and society.
Matsunyane and Ngcobo’s contributions to Kaya as a business and the radio industry at large are unprecedented. Kaya is deeply appreciative of their commitment over the years. They are among the most successful broadcasters of our time and have constantly shown passion and drive through their work.
Last year Uncaptured won the award for the Best Afternoon Drive Show at the 2019 Liberty Radio Awards. Matsunyane was also nominated in the Best Afternoon Drive Presenter category in the same year. She was also the host of The Showcase with Kgomotso Matsunyane on Kaya TV, a platform for up and coming artists and their musical journeys. Ngcobo’s last show on Kaya 959 will be this Friday, 29th May 2020, alongside Skhumba on Good Friday.
The station was able to achieve a lot with the show, including cultivating a culture of intimate connections and dialogues with listeners. Kaya 959 will be heading in a different direction with a new drive-time show starting in July 2020. The show’s host will be announced soon. Elite Nights’ Kgomotso Meso will be standing in for the month of June.
