The cool future of radio

His voice and face have been beamed across all media platforms in the country since the turn of the millennium.

Raised in the mining town of Selebi-Phikwe, Bonnie Dintwa now owns the first locally brewed online radio station.

The 38-year-old radio head, known for his tough love and no nonsense attitude, began his media career with BTV’s popular show, Flava Dome.

A year later, he moved to RB 2 before joining Yarona FM as the station’s breakfast show host.

The radio personality migrated from the youthful radio station to join DUMA FM before returning to Yarona FM as Programmes Manager.

However, he left the station in January, sparking speculation that this was because of a personal relationship with a female presenter, Mimi Dintwa Knee Mokgwathi, popularly known in radio circles as Zizi Panther.

The couple got married two months ago.

Opening up to the media for the first time since launching his online radio station, ICE 100, four months ago, the history-maker had a heart to heart with The Voice’s SHARON MATHALA at his posh offices in the Central Business District (CBD).
