Lesotho Times - - Entertainment - Mo­halenyane Phakela

RA­DIO pre­sen­ter and events host, Tl­hok­aboyo “Tl­hokz” Mo­hasi, has left Peo­ple’s Choice (PCFM) Ra­dio to re-join Thaha-khube (TK) FM.

Tl­hokz, who has since been re­named ‘Mamokoena Mokoena fol­low­ing her re­cent mar­riage, came to promi­nence on the air­waves in 2009 as a pre­sen­ter of the mid­day TKFM show Lunch Box be­fore mov­ing to PCFM in 2011 where she pre­sented the morn­ing show 912 Street.

Her pop­u­lar­ity soared ow­ing to her unique pre­sent­ing style and the con­tro­ver­sial top­ics she tack­led which mostly af­fect the youth both on ra­dio and so­cial me­dia.

Over time, she be­came a lis­ten­ers’ favourite as ev­i­denced by pop­u­lar­ity of her phone-in pro­gramme, her huge so­cial me­dia fol­low­ing and her well at­tended an­nual birth­day cel­e­bra­tions.

The Roma-born and bred ra­dio per­son­al­ity re­vealed in a long Face­book post this week that she had de­cided to re­join the Ha Tsosane-based TK stu­dios.

This was af­ter her page on the so­cial me­dia site had been in­un­dated with en­quiries from fans on why she had sud­denly gone quiet on PCFM.

“I am back home,” Tl­hokz said. “The TKFM boss wanted me back. So since we were not fight­ing, when I left in 2011, I thought I should re­join the fam­ily.”

Tl­hoks was, how­ever, re­luc­tant to re­veal the rea­sons she left the LNDC build­ing-based ra­dio sta­tion, only say­ing it was for “good” rea­sons.

“To set the record straight, I was not fired at PCFM and there is no bad blood be­tween us, they are still my fam­ily too, I just saw this as a good ca­reer move,” she said. “I still have mad love and re­spect for Ha Ntat’ae (as PCFM is pop­u­larly known) and they were very great there.”

She also said she is “still the same old Tl­hoks” but just at a dif­fer­ent sta­tion, and adding that this might be her last move be­fore she quits ra­dio. She will now be pre­sent­ing Af­ter­noon Drive from 3-6pm at TKFM.
