Rumours of Thando Thabethe being DJ Fresh's replacement on 947's drive time show remain unconfirmed at this stage.

Fans of 947 have been left in dismay after finding out that drive time host DJ Fresh (Thato Sikwane) will no longer be returning to his show.

This after the DJ announced he would be taking a step back from all public engagements pending an investigation in sexual assault charges brought against him in January.

A month later, the station announced that it would be parting ways with DJ Fresh and his co-accused, DJ Euphonik (Themba Nkosi).

This left a major vacuum in the station’s highly popular drive time slot which podcast host Macgyver “MacG” Mukwevho claims will be filled by actress and former 5FM DJ Thando Thabethe in episode 227 of his YouTube show.

In a statement to The Citizen by 947, the station has not yet settled on who will be Fresh’s replacement.

“A process is under way to identify a host for the 947 afternoon drive show. No decision has been taken and we continue to engage positively with several candidates. Once an agreement has been reached, we will make an announcement,” said 947.

Thabethe, who left 5FM in early 2020, has been focusing full time on her acting career and lingerie line which is available on Zando.

She has since stared in Netflix’s How to Ruin Christmas: The Wedding and M-Net’s Reyka alongside British actor Iain Glen, who played Ser Jorah Mormont in Game of Thrones.
