Metro FM DJ Fresh has responded to widespread speculation that there is beef between him and radio personalities Glen Lewis and Unathi Msengana The rumour started making the rounds after the DJ replaced the pair on Metro FM.
Speaking during his Metro FM breakfast show (which he took over from Unathi) on Friday, Fresh answered questions about the beef rumours.
Fresh explained that the “beef” between them came from their time as rival radio hosts on YFM and Metro FM.
“When I was at YFM and Glen was at Metro FM, we both did the afternoon drive shows and there was a perceived beef between us.
We would also take potshots at each other. We never hated each other.”
When asked why he and Glen Lewis had not worked together after their 2001 album, Gatecrasher Meets Afrikha. “We worked together on Gatecrasher Meets Afrikha through Gallo Music because Glen had a deal there.
There is no beef. The fact that we have not done a second album has nothing to do with beef.”
Again, Metro FM DJ Fresh said he has not noticed any animosity between himself and Glen’s former co-host Unathi after he took over their morning show on Metro FM, but admitted there could be a little awkwardness between them.
“I know for a fact that generally, in our industry, there is awkwardness when I am doing a show you used to do,” he said.
He referred to the time he replaced DJ Fana “Khabzela” Khaba on YFM and said there was “a bit of tension” as a result of the switch.
Similarly, Unathi told Gareth Cliff on CliffCentral that she was far from being hurt by Fresh replacing her on radio.
