    What?? No KB from 5FM?? LOL, just kidding, his show has to be the worst on the planet!!

  • MattCharm Visser - 2013-04-15 16:21

    Glad to see there was nothing from 94.7 they irritate the hell out of me. Well done to all the winners though.

  • Stewart Croucamp - 2013-04-15 19:32

    Never heard of any of these winners. Obviously politically and racially motivated.

  • Stephan van Heerden - 2013-04-15 19:59

    Mr. Reporter, your list is incomplete...do you receive a salary at the end of the month for bad reporting? Please go and check the winners again...

  • Luka Mathebula - 2013-04-15 22:06

    Congratulation Munghana Lonene FM for a sympathetic award they have decided to throw at you. I wonder if they give ML FM award because they understand Tsonga language or because they were amused by the long played drama? Only time will tell.

  • Dikabelo Dikwidi - 2013-04-17 17:25

    I can't believe that Redi Tlhabi wasn't one of the winners. She is the best.
