Kaya FM finally speaks on Dineo Ranaka bullying Sol Phenduka at work

Kaya FM finally speaks on Dineo Ranaka bullying Sol Phenduka at work.

For three days straight, the topic of Mzansi radio personality Dineo Ranaka taking the limelight away from the Sol Phenduka controversy has been trending. When listeners saw a disparity between the two of them, the co-host of Kaya 959 Breakfast set tongues wagging.

The two newest members of the Kaya 959 family are Sol and Dineo. They replaced Skhumba Hlophe and Thomas Msengana, who both transferred to other positions.

They observed an imbalance and an “obvious” display of superiority by Dineo, much to the listeners’ dismay. To the extent that some even addressed an open letter to the station, this was the case.

Readers of the open letter voiced their dissatisfaction with Dineo for giving Sol so little opportunity to speak. Some even said that Sol must raise his hand before being given the chance to speak, provided that Dineo agrees, of course.

“We write to you as listeners of Kaya 959 to express our concerns as we have been frequently observing and listening to the unacceptable and toxic behavior of Dineo Ranaka.”

“Even if it’s your first time listening to Dineo and Sol on the show, one can simply stipulate who’s trying to outsmart or overpower the other one.

“All the time Sol speaks, he’s been cut off. That’s very disrespectful and such toxic behavior will not by any means be accepted on this immaculate platform that Sol is adding major value on,” the letter continues.

Listeners say Dineo is great as a broadcaster but they wish to see more of Sol.

“Dineo Ranaka is great and we are not here to cancel nor bash her, we also appreciate her skills. But most of us are there because of Sol, therefore as much as we are there for him, we want to hear Sol Phenduka equally as Dineo speaks on the radio. All we are asking is more airtime to converse on the show with us listeners without Dineo taking the spotlight and invading whenever Sol speaks,” the letter continues.

Kaya’s MD denied these assertions in a statement that News24 obtained. But they made it very obvious that Sol, the co-host who also provides weather updates, is the show’s co-host and that Dineo is its host.

According to their statement, they were pleased that Dineo was the lead female anchor for a breakfast program because it is not common in the South African radio industry.

“The structure of 959 Breakfast is that Dineo Ranaka is the main anchor and Sol Phenduka is the co-host and traffic reporter,” Kaya 959 MD Sibondile Mtyali said in a press statement.

“We are aware that a female lead anchor on a breakfast show is unusual in the SA radio landscape, but we have full confidence in both Dineo and Sol’s talent and their ability to navigate the dynamics of the show.”

Slik Talk then bashed Dineo Ranaka and dragged her for filth. He told her to allow Sol some time to also speak and do his work.

“My boy was being treated like a toddler. I’m talking about being treated like a kindergarten toddler. Disrespect all the way by Dineo Ranaka. Sol Phenduka cannot talk, he cannot ask a question, he has to raise his hands. Dineo let me give you a reality check, we all know you have 3 baby daddies, and we not going to hold it against you, Sol Phenduka is not baby number 4 nor is he baby daddy number 4. You have to treat that man with respect, because he is your co-worker.

“It’s 50/50, it’s not your show, it’s not the Dineo Ranaka Breakfast show. I can tell Kaya FM did not do their homework because Dineo is the same person that tried to get Sol fired from Podcast and Chill. She feels threatened,” said Slik Talk.
