Following a heartfelt resignation from Metro FM, where The Kings Of The Weekend, SPHEctacula and DJ Naves, called home for seven years; it was announced at a press conference in Durban yesterday evening that the dynamic duo will be taking over the Gagasi FM afternoon drive show from Thursday, 1 June 2017.
Yesterday’s announcement has finally laid to rest the intense curiosity around whether the duo was lost to radio forever or whether they had found a new home. The appointment of The Kings Of The Weekend to Gagasi FM’s weekday 3-6pm timeslot speaks volumes of the magnitude of their brand that they have successfully built over the past seven years.

“We knew we were ready for change and something bigger to challenge ourselves. We weren’t sure precisely what this change would be, but we believed in having a bigger impact on radio. We put it out to the universe and our paths have aligned with Gagasi FM at the right time. We would like to whole-hearted thank the Gagasi FM team for believing in our vision and entrusting us with their prime time show. We look forward to executing our shared vision for the show with them and growing with the station,” share The Kings Of The Weekend, SPHEctacula and DJ Naves.
To celebrate this auspicious occasion, The Kings Of The Weekend have pushed forward plans to release their new EP, The Kings Way Vol 1 and have it available from 1 June 2017 as well.
SPHEctacula and DJ Naves’ appointment to the Gagasi FM afternoon drive show is another indicator that marks the new era they are embarking on. New club owners to premium clubbing venue, Icon Soweto, in Pimville Square; The Kings Of The Weekend have revolutionized their brand to include various monetized touch points within the entertainment industry eco system, not only to ensure that their brand remains highly bankable, but decidedly sustainable for years to come.
