Phat Joe, real name Majota Khambule, leaves Metro FM for East Coast Radio
TV/radio personality Phat Joe, real name Majota Khambule, has left Metro FM in favour of East Coast Radio, which is based in Kwazulu Natal.
He will be hosting the daily afternoon drive show weekdays, from 15:00 to 18:00. Fans can expect a great time, Phat Joe really is great on the mic.
“This is a really exciting opportunity for me. Not only will I get to chill in Durban, but I also get to interact with the cool listeners of East Coast Radio on a daily basis. I think we are going to have a lot of fun together” Phat Joe shared his excitement about his new gig.
Phat Joe was on Metro FM for the weekend morning radio show between 05:00 AM – 09:00 AM.
East Coast Radio’s Zane Derbyshire confirmed that Phat Joe had joined East Coast Radio.
“Yes, we can confirm that Phat Joe has left Metro FM to join East Coast Radio. The decision was a planned and thought through process to make sure it was a smooth transition for both Phat Joe and us,” Derbyshire explained.
“Phat Joe is a national talent, and well-known to many South Africans. This was an opportunity to bring a big star to the Durban shores, for our listeners. The opportunity to have Phat Joe join East Coast Radio has come about to bring KZN big talent.”
Twitter responded to Joe moving to East Coast radio, with many saying just how badly they will miss him, and just how awesome he was at his job.
Many were even saying that he should have been the one to take over TBo Touch’s slot after he left.
We wish him the best, we know his show on ECR will be LIT!!
Metro is so shitty for giving Khanyi and Somizi that slot when they could have given it to Phat Joe.. So shitty
