Twitter was abuzz with confusion at Metro FM's and 5FM's little prank for April Fools day.

It looks like people like routine because this little prank didn't go well with the listeners as the two radio jocks switched it up by taking over each other's afternoon slots, where Thando Thabethe was Metro and Mo Flava on 5Fm for the first 45 minutes of the respective shows.

This prank comes in the wake of Metro FM's presenter line-up announcement that had a few surprises up its sleeves.

The joke nearly shattered the Twittersphere as listeners seemed to be high-key stressed out.






Metro FM announced on Saturday, its newest presenter line-up and had a few surprises up their sleeves. The changes, that were effective as of Monday, have brought on board big names such as Ayabonga Cawe, Relebogile Mabotja, Moshe Ndiki and Andile Ncube.

Ayabonga Cawe takes over ‘METRO FM Talk’. The ‘#FreshBreakfast’ is joined by seasoned broadcaster and media personality, Relebogile Mabotja and one of South Africa's most loved media personalities Moshe Ndiki who joins ‘The Drive’ as a show contributor.

Another well-known name, Andile Ncube, switches radio homes from Radio 2000 to Metro Fm as their sports presenter for the weekend breakfast show ‘#TheWKNDR’.

These new changes will also see Somizi Mhlongo joining ‘#TheBridge’ team alongside Dineo Ranaka and Lerato Kganyago, while Sentle Lehoko takes over the ‘#NinetoMidnightWithSentle’.
