After the unprecedented success of Podcast and Chill with MacG, Metro FM presenter and club DJ Dineo Ranaka is ready to launch the very first episode of her new YouTube podcast, Open ID With Dineo Ranaka.

Ranaka recently shared on her YouTube account the chopped clip of the first episode, which will be released on Wednesday 6 April.

It revealed Lesego “Blaklez” Moiloa, a Pretoria-based rapper and Ranaka’s ex-boyfriend, as the first guest on the show (which, like MacG’s podcast, will be strictly for over 18s).

Mzansi’s podcast world has enjoyed a rapid rise recently, with the number of Mzansi YouTubers on the rise as well.

Like most SA podcasts, Ranaka promises not to “beat around the bush”, as she starts by pondering her failed relationship with the rapper, who is also the father of her second born, Kopano.

MacG’s podcast, which he hosts with Solomzi “Sol” Phenduka and the undisclosed female presenter who goes by the name “Ghost Lady”, has reached over 540,000 subscribers since its first episode aired in 2018.

Meanwhile on Sunday, Ranaka shared on Instagram that she has finally divorced the father of her last born after two years of marriage.

“DIVORCE: Was it worth it? F**K YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!” wrote Ranaka on Instagram when she made the announcement.
