Mixed Reactions About Phat Joe's New Job

Apr 08, 2019, 09:21 AM

There have been many radio personality shifts on many local radio stations in the past month, and although some shifts may have been unfavourable for your favourite radio personalities, other changes have been welcomed with open arms.

For instance, Phat Joe, who is considered as one of South Africa's most controversial yet entertaining radio broadcaster has joined Radio 2000. From today, the radio personality will be hosting the breakfast show from 6:00am - 9:00am.

The news of Phat Joe joining this radio station has come with a lot of mixed reactions from the public.

Some of Radio 2000's listeners have welcomed Phat Joe with open arms, these are just some of the positive comments said by various listeners since listening to him this morning:

One listener commended Phat Joe for his ability to adapt to whatever radio station he is placed in and his ability to gel with other personalities.

The chemistry between @TheRealPhatJoe and Lelo/Nala is so flawless and instant. This is why Phat Joe is Mr Radio. He gels with anyone of any personality effortlessly. He brings a certain atmosphere and vibe into studio and our homes and cars. #PhatJoeOn2000  - @ShotaZee

While another listener expressed that Phat Joe's return to national radio is nothing but a positive thing.

It's good to have Phat Joe back on national radio , always been one of my fave radio broadcaster - @Iam_sbuda

Another individual made an interesting suggestion by stating that Phat Joe and DJ Fresh should host their breakfast shows simultaneously from their different studios.

Phat Joe is literally my lifetime favourite.
Like I stan forever. The tension for breakfast is real.
Can't Fresh & Joe do it together from different studios? SABC must make it happen! #FreshBreakfast - @MissMadiba

However, on the other hand, some listeners are not impressed with Phat Joe being appointed as the new radio host for the breakfast show

A total down grade! You guys SUCK for bringing the likes of Phat Joe! he's as good at Metro or TV! - @Godfada7

It is also quite clear that those that do not want Phat Joe on Radio 2000 are determined to have Just Ice, who was the former radio host of the breakfast show return to his slot.

You guys you think numbers lie we will show you we won't Listen to that Phat Joe we want the ice man back - @maphuphethe

Too much noise from this Phat Joe. We want Ice back. You are not MetroFM plse. If we wantrd noise we would go to Metro. Watch your numbers drop - @senndebs

The truth is that Phat Joe is skilled in his craft but he isn't Just Ice. 

Just Ice is like Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo. Such people can't be replaced willy nilly.

We need our man Ice back. Hayi kabi. - @RisMashinini

Well, unfortunately for all you Just Ice fans, what's done is done. Phat Joe is officially your new host for the breakfast show so just sit and enjoy the ride until he decides to either resign or gets shifted to a new radio station.

But with a baby girl on a way and a family to take care of, we're quite sure Phat Joe is going to make sure that he does an outstanding job at Radio 2000, after all daddy needs to bring the bacon home.
