Chilli M

Chilli M has gone through quite a lot of trials and tribulations in his life and we've watched all those unfortunate events unfold in the public eye.

But at some point, in Chilli M's broadcasting career he was the man, we remember how his career sky-rocketed to even greater heights when he had his drive-time show on YFM alongside Dineo Ranaka, titled The Essential Rush.

The two were a force to be reckoned with their drive-time show was constantly the topic of discussion because of all the subjects they discussed on air.

Bab' Daddy and Mam' Daddy as they named themselves had the youth glued to their radio show every day of the week.

The show unfortunately, went through a whole lot of drama which includes that one afternoon when Chilli M unleashed what has been termed as a 'verbal tirade' against Dineo when she was the producer of the show back then. 

The Drama unfolded on air as listeners listened attentively to what was going on in studio and after that altercation, The Essential Rush was never the same

However,  Chilli M continued to release music with songs like uDaddy uSebenzile (Daddy has worked) 

In 2015 he also released a track titled Umgan'Wami featuring Bubzin, Phi and Ginger.

Come to think of it, a lot of Durban house DJ's were quite fond of working with Chilli M when his career was on the rise.

However, ever since he left YFM and went on to radio shows like uKhozi FM things just began to spiral down for the radio personality who got fired from Ukhozi FM after the station found out that he was getting paid to playlist songs on the station.

Chilli M went on to sadly lose his daughter after a fatal car accident took her life back in November 2015.

But regardless of the negative that occured in his life, Chilli M alongside Dineo probably gave YFM one of the best drive-time shows ever to come from the youth radio station.
