Radio and TV personality Dineo Ranaka’s podcast, S*x ‘n Stuff, will be airing on BET Africa. The former Kaya FM presenter shared the news on her Instagram account on Wednesday, 18 October.

“We’re back!!! Every Wednesday (TONIGHT) @ 9pm on @bet_africa and Every Thursday @ 9pm on my Dineo Ranaka YouTube channel; one of my proudest moments this!! May this be the beginning of a fruitful relationship and many other doors opening. May this be the acceptance of me to ME! May this continue to be blessed,” she wrote. Dineo’s podcast premiered in July on MacG’s YouTube channel after Kaya FM fired her. This came after she took time off work as she was struggling with her mental health and battling suicide thoughts.

However, Kaya FM says the mom-of-three did not communicate her medical issues with them, instead she reportedly went AWOL (absent without leave). Louw claims they found out about her challenges on social media.

According to Louw, they tried to communicate with Dineo to find out how she was doing, but their attempts failed. He added that they wish to help Dineo and work with her again.
