Ukhozi FM will on Friday, December 31, 2021, shake things up a little with an exciting New Year’s Eve line up where a team of On-Air Presenters has been specially arranged to deliver specialized shows on the day. This exciting line-up promises to keep listeners entertained throughout the day as we build up to the crossover song Ingoma Ehlukanisa Unyaka at midnight.
In true Ukhozi FM culture, the announcement of the popular Ingoma Ehlukanisa Unyaka will be the highlight of the day as the song with the most votes will cross over into 2022. Voters still have the opportunity to decide the winners as voting ends at 12 noon on Friday, December 31, 2021. The station will have two popular Ukhozi fm presenters host the crossover show, which will air from 21:00 – 01:00. To keep up the suspense of who will host the show, listeners will have to tune in to the show to find out who will be hosting it.
