Durban, South Africa – Tuesday – March 19, 2024 – Ukhozi FM, South Africa’s leading radio station, is thrilled to announce its exhilarating lineup for the 2024-2025 broadcasting season. Packed with seasoned favourites and exciting new voices, the station continues with its commitment of delivering unparalleled entertainment and informative programming to its millions of loyal listeners across the country.


The station’s breakfast show, ‘Vuka Africa Breakfast Show’, continues to be hosted by Sipho “DJ Sgqemeza” Mbatha alongside Nonhlanhla ‘Mroza’” Buthelezi every Monday to Friday from 06h00 to 09h00.

Khathide “Tshatha” Ngobe and Selby “Selbeyonce” Mkhize drive listeners home with their infectious energy every weekday from 15h00 to 18h00 on ‘Woza Nabangani Bakho’.  The WNB team welcomes Nco Dube as its social commentator.


Siyabonga Mhlongo will continue to captivate audiences on ‘Ubusuku Obuhle’ from Mondays to Thursdays from 20h00 to 00h00.


Ukhozi FM is very proud to have unearthed phenomenal talent though the Winnie Mahlangu Female Presenter Search, which has been running since 2020. This campaign was born out of the need for the station to empower female broadcasters in the industry. This year the station will be welcoming Nozipho Zulu the 2023 and fourth winner of the competition. She takes over the Sunday 03h00 – 06h00 development slot from Londa Mbatha the 2022 winner. The show will now be called ‘Kwasa Okungaliyo’. Londa moves to host the agriculture show ‘Cobela Kufalaza’ on Mondays 03h00 – 05h00.  Zama Mseleku, the first winner of the Winnie Mahlangu Female Presenter Search in 2020, will bring her unique charm to the airwaves on Saturdays from 07h00 to 09h00 with ‘Ulozolo’.


Bingelela Mpanza, the 2021 winner of the Winnie Mahlangu Female Presenter Search will continue to host ‘Sigiya Ngengoma’ every Saturday 09h00 – 12h00. Khathide “Tshatha’ Ngobe will stand-in on the show until the station can find a suitable replacement following the untimely passing of the show’s host Bheka “Beekay” Mchunu on 12 March 2024.


Ukhozi FM TV welcomes seasoned actor and video editor Muzi Mthabela as one of its hosts alongside Neliswa Cele.


Sbongi Ngcobo, Ukhozi FM’s Business Manager expressed her enthusiasm about the forthcoming radio season, stating, “We are delighted to introduce our listeners to this dynamic talent and fresh perspectives. Our innovative campaigns, nation-building discourse, and stellar lineup of presenters ensure that we remain at the forefront of the industry, resonating with our vast audience and meeting the needs of our clients. We are confident that Ukhozi FM will continue to dominate in terms of audiences and continue to build on revenue generation.”
