The beautiful rainbow nation of South Africa has produced its fair share of entertainers. Some came out of the blue making the world stand on its feet while others were born to be the best entertainers on the land.mflava2


There is no doubting that the drive time slot on radio is the preserve of truly talented personalities because they are the most listened to shows worldwide. That is where the born entertainers step into the fray.


Tuning into YFM every week day between 3 – 7pm can leave you mesmerised.


Aptly named Get On The Freeway, the drive time show has the ability to make trickling through traffic seem like a walk in the park. The show is hosted by Mo Flava, christened Moeti Tsiki, and it is not a surprise as to why he squeezed his way to hosting one of the best shows in the land. The station also adheres to that notion as his profile on the YFM website describes him as an unstoppable ball of entertainment fire.


“I did the breakfast show for four years before I got the drive time slot. This shift is exactly what I had planned from the moment I joined YFM and now the time is right for me,” he testified.

Get On  The Freeway consists of various features that cater for a full spectrum audience.


mflava3A Soweto boy by birth, Mo Flava obtained a Diploma in Media Studies and majored in radio broadcasting, programming and journalism.


“The drive time slot allows me to explore various topics and conversations that I couldn’t tackle in the morning, making for better radio. Plus I get to sleep a little longer and not have to wake up before the cock crows,” Mo Flava added.  He joined the popular youth inspired YFM in 2007 and rose up the ladder from hosting Flava In The Morning. He did the morning show with so much aplomb having taken over from DJ Sbu.


He views radio as one of the main drivers, not only for information, but also of popular culture and perceptions.


“YFM has been an amazing part of my 8 year commercial radio career. Radio is continuously expanded thanks to the 20 years of democracy. New and upcoming DJ’s, who were previously unheralded, now have the scope for upward movement within the industry. This is largely because of the high number of radio stations that we have now. It’s such a great thing.” he alluded.


Mo Flava isn’t just a voice on radio. He is a born entertainer whose voice has managed to conquer the airwaves and taken him to millions of hearts within the country’s borders.

He also has a huge passion for writing and plans to write for some of the country’s most recognised publications.

Wait, this dude even has his website! Way to go my man!
