For the past two years, I have worked for an online radio station called VibeRadioSA and have had two shows on there. The first show was called “#TheBS_Show” and that show was from May 2013 and it ended in January 2015. I co-host the show with a rapper called BlaQ-Slim. Now I’m currently on a radio show that airs every Saturdays from 12:00 till 14:00 on the same station, Vibe Radio.
