VUMA 103FM attracts top stars


Fast making its mark on the country’s radio landscape, VUMA 103FM, the commercial
isiZulu inspirational lifestyle radio station which went live to air in November last
year has attracted a stellar line-up of exciting additional presenters to its studios.

The station based in Umhlanga Newtown in Durban, has announced that four new
presenters will be added to the schedule from 6 May, complementing the current
vibrant line-up. New to the airwaves are businesswoman, model, and the first South
African Survivor winner Vanessa Marawa, who is joined by Idols personality and
singing sensation, L’loyd Cele. Two veterans of radio, the seasoned Lucky Sefatsa and
the legendary Grant Shakoane, promise to add a wealth of experience to the dynamic
established team.

“As Kwazulu-Natal’s only inspirational radio station we are strengthening our current
talented roster with the introduction of some exciting new voices to the radio
landscape and also re-introducing some beloved and familiar names for our listeners,’
explains new programmes manager Thando Makhunga, “With Vanessa and L’loyd we
will be bringing a fresh new approach to the airwaves and we are confident that Lucky
and Grant will add their veteran savvy and warm charm to the station.’

“We have had to make some alterations in our scheduling due to the new presenters,’
explains Phindi Gule, Station Manager. “Leleti Khumalo, co-host of the Kwasa
Breakfast Show, is pregnant, and she will be taking maternity leave from July. We
have therefore persuaded Vanessa, to take up the challenge and join the fun and
madness of the breakfast show with Felix Hlophe. We are confident that Vanessa,
who has a great voice for radio and a charming warm personality will slot in very
comfortably with the morning drive team and add her appealing sense of humour to
the show.’

“An amazing electric on-air chemistry has developed in the afternoon drive time show
with current hosts Linda Ndimande and Ndoni Radebe,’ says Gule. “We want to now
channel this energy into the lunchtime slot, and Lucky Sefatsa will now host the
afternoon drive show. Lucky, brings almost twenty years of radio experience to the
station, and has a natural and connected rapport with his listeners.’

The new programme will be available on on 6 May. Follow on Facebook
