Lerato Kganyago was minding her own business on Twitter this week when a tweep accused her of stealing Bonang Matheba’s idea.

The Twitter user told Lerato and her The Bridge co-host, Dineo Ranaka, to remove the Ask A Man segment from their Metro FM show as the idea belonged to Queen B.

“@METROFMSA #TheBridge Ya we had enough with Ask A Man tlhe, can't y'all @dineoranaka, @Leratokganyago be creative and come up with something fresh. Phela since it was started by @bonang_m ages ago. Make a plan,” he wrote.

Lerato did not take too kindly to being called a copycat.

“Ask A Man came up during the days of Sis Azania, which actually belongs to the station but continue with your ignorance my love....we enjoy it,” she replied.

We’re not surprised that Lerato was quick to set the record straight. 

Bonang famously left the radio station in 2017 after a line-up change saw her having to share her show with Lerato. Within hours of the shakeup, Queen B announced she was resigning. 

But the 32-year-old insisted it was not because of Lerato. Queen B claimed Metro FM officials only told her about the changes an hour before she was about to go on-air.

Some Twitter users blamed Lerato for Bonang’s dramatic exist. Lerato described the day as one of her “darkest” moments in her radio career. 

"… on that day and I got blamed for her leaving the show…  it was very tense... And I thought, 'you know what another teething phase, we'll be okay by tomorrow'. But, uhm, it was just awkward,” she said during The Drive on Metro with Mo Flava and Masechaba Ndlovu earlier this year.

Lerato was quick to dismiss any beef with Queen B during the interview. She said she has “so much respect” for B.
