Mantsoe was axed from 947 after DJ Fresh was fired from the station, following rape assault allegations that were levelled against him and his friend Euphonik. Primedia said at the time that it was “bidding farewell” to Pout as part of changes to the drive show.

She later joined Star FM which she recently left just eight-months after joining the station.

“I’ve had a phenomenal time seeing a new station build and sustain itself. To have been a part of that history, and to proudly say ’I did Star FM’s very first lunchtime show’ is something I will hold dear to me for a long time,” said Mantsoe in a statement.

“I have built something from scratch that I am so proud of. You’ll find out about it in due course, but I’m really excited about 2022. I feel good.”
