Metro FM fans and listeners just went through an emotional rollercoaster ride after celebrating the good news of Lerato Kganyago joining Bonang’s ‘The Front Row’ team only to find out that Queen B is on her way out of the station!
Bonang took to Twitter on Monday (04 March 17) to announce the shocking news of her departure.
“After three years of making magic on the Front Row, I can confirm that I have officially stepped down as the host of the show. I will miss my Metro FM family dearly, as they say all good things do come to an end….looking forward to the next chapter of my radio life,” she said.
Bonang’s resignation comes just hours after the SABC confirmed that Lerato Kganyago had joined forces with Bonang on The Front Row as co-host.

B’s management DNA Brand Architects confirmed that Bonang had resigned from the show but poured cold water over speculation that her decision had anything to do with co-hosting with Lerato Kganyago.
B’s resignation from Metro comes in the midst of a major presenter reshuffle on the station.
DJ Fresh moved from 5 FM to take over the reins as the breakfast show host along with Somizi Mhlongo as his co-host.
The changes come in the wake of Glen Lewis’ resignation from the station to join Touch HD. This was followed by Unathi Msengana’s shock departure on Friday after a decade on the station.
It is such a shame that Bonang will no longer bring her fabulous personality to Metro FM as she has resigned from the station.
