Meet Disney Junior’s Rita the cheetah


Unathi has one of the most recognizable voices in South Africa. Not only is she a host on arguably the biggest breakfast radio show in the country, she’s also a judge on Idols South Africa and she’s a SAMA winning singer too. Well now her voice extends its reach into the market. This time as she tackles a rather different, but interesting role… the voice of Rita the cheetah in Disney Junior’s Doc McStuffins.

On being involved in the show Unathi said, “I am thrilled and humbled by this opportunity. Being a mother myself, I love watching Disney Junior with my children. I can’t wait to sit down on the couch with my children and watch their faces as they hear my voice in Doc McStuffins.”

Here’s a little more from Unathi in making Rita come to life:

You’ll get to hear/ see Rita on the 16 June at 08:20. More on Disney Junior can be found at or I’ve got two Doc McStuffins DVDs up for grabs. Just tweet me on @JasonVonBerg and let me know what character is Unathi playing in the show. Simple :)



Anele heading back to 94.7 Highveld Stereo

One of SA’s most loved stars, Anele Mdoda or simply just Anele, is making a move… The 5FM DJ will be leaving the station at the end of March. She’ll be returning to regional station, 94.7 Highveld Stereo as of the beginning of April. The DJ, who kicked off her radio career at Tuks FM during her varsity days, used to host the evening show on the 94.7 with her good friend, Grant Nash a few years ago. The duo then moved to 5FM, where they’ve hosted the 12-3 show ever since.

94.7 made the news official via their Twitter stream earlier saying: “@Anele is coming back to @947Highveld to rev up Afternoon Drive!!! #greatnews

Anele will be hosting the drive time show, which means the current host Mark Pilgrim will be moving on, as will the awesome Bailey Schneider. No word on what their plans are, or what 5FM and Anele’s co-host Grant will do as yet, but the radio shuffle continues…As soon as I have official word, I’ll post it up here. For now, a big congrats to Anele for this achievement, it’s a big deal and I feel she will rise to the challenge.

Note to self, time to get that demo done and polished… again!
