In 2011, Sowetan reported that Ranaka was allegedly given an ultimatum by YFM after she had a fight with the marketing manager, Tamaria Motsepe. It is said that during the Afternoon Drive Show that she hosted, Dineo began sobbing uncontrollably.
During a Drum magazine interview in 2015, Dineo Ranaka labelled South African men as cowards. This statement stemmed from her concerns about the string of Xenophobic attacks that occurred in the country, it also came from a place of worry as her two children are both fathered by foreign men.
That statement did not sit well with some South African men.
Recently, Cassper Nyovest also complained via a tweet that Dineo is always saying unkind words about him.
I been saying this for years. Dinneo Ranaka been talking shit about me since Wahala days. She even tweeted that she couldn’t wait for my downfall. Hakitsi gore ong patlang ousie o. Ousie o motona yana bathong. Can’t she just play the song, announce it and move on .@METROFMSA ? https://t.co/vNmMrv53c8— R.M Phoolo (@CassperNyovest)
