Taking to his Twitter page on Monday morning to make the long-awaited announcement, the Big Dawg posted a 34-second video in which he can be heard calling into 94.7 and later teasing a ‘Fresh on 947’ slot that would be starting on 1 August 2019.
In a previous video that the DJ posted on Friday, he revealed that his new show would have “a kick-ass team, a lot of entertainment and a lot of laughter.”
Fans were excited to learn that the DJ would be returning to the airwaves and the hashtag #Freshon947 quickly topped the trendslist on Twitter.
According to a statement released by the SABC spokesperson, Vuyo Mthembu, "The termination follows unsuccessful engagements between SABC Radio Management and DJ Fresh, after his usage of offensive language on-air."
