Dineo Bold Stance on South African Radio Station
In her conversation with BET, Dineo made a bold statement: no radio station in South Africa can contain her. She expressed her dissatisfaction with the radio stations in the country, going as far as to say they make her sick.
Drawing a parallel between these radio stations and her failed marriage, she stated that just like her ex-husband, these stations could not contain her. Despite being associated with several radio stations, she has often left them at the last minute. Her career has seen her work with YFM, Cliff Central, Metro FM, and Kaya 959. A video of her interview has since gone viral, garnering thousands of comments and reactions.
Making Headlines: Controversies and Departures
In 2023, Dineo made headlines when she took a break from Kaya FM due to chronic depression. A few weeks later, she parted ways with the station. After leaving Kaya FM, she took to social media to label the station as a toxic environment. This wasn’t the first time she had a fallout with a radio station. Back in 2011, while at YFM, Dineo had an on-air breakdown, which led to her being taken off air. These incidents have added to the drama and controversy that seem to follow her career.
