On Sunday October 7th YFM adds a brand new Hip Hop show to its line-up. The Rodeo will see hosts Siyabonga “Scoop Makhathini” Ngwekazi and Bontle Modiselle take over the airwaves every Sunday, from 6pm through to 10pm.
The 4-hour show is dedicated solely to the Hip Hop genre, both locally and globally. Listeners are in for an intense, vibrant, high energy show with in depth conversations about all things Hip Hop as this duo recreates the feelings and energy of being at a rodeo.
As Scoop and Bontle each infuse their unique personalities into The Rodeo, they bring the show to life – they are THE experience. Generational relation, global and local music playlists, ranks, charts and current affairs within the Hip Hop world, are some of the features listeners can look forward to in October.
Scoop’s reputation in the broadcast industry speaks for itself and he is no stranger to YFM. His return will create a feeling of nostalgia for listeners and a refreshed liking from his fans. Bontle has fast made her mark in the industry as an actress, dancer and Television personality, naturally, radio should be an exciting addition for her.

YFM has always been at the forefront of bringing the best music and fearless conversations to the listeners, trust me when I say it’s no different this time around, we’re about to own this space!” – YFM Programming Manager, Tumelo Diaho-Monaheng.
