DIARY: 03 November with Oscar Von Memerty



It’s a Thirsty Thursday as the Arch likes to say and that means it’s the Throwback edition of the DJ Sbu Breakfast, where we play you nothing but the best in classic hits from back in the day.

It also means that today we have a Hustler in with us for our feature, the #HustlersCorner where we feature entrepreneurs who are in the come up in terms of their businesses.

After kicking off the show in our custom way, led by the spirit, through prayer, we get straight into the news and sports headlines and then it’s straight into our triple play.

We breeze through the first hour of the show with the Arch taking a look at what’s making the newspapers, with news headlines at 6 thirty and the first sports bulletin of the day, as well as more in the best that music has to offer.

We also get into the Current Affairs feature, where today the Arch spoke to a political analyst to help us understand the highly anticipated State of Capture Report released by former Public Protector, Thuli Madonsela which has implicated a number of highly ranked government officials.

In the second hour of the show, we welcome our hustler, Oscar von Memerty, a hip hop dancer, prankster and motivational speaker.

He has Maroteaux Lamy syndrome, a disease that only he and one other person are known to suffer from, and its resulted in him being a dwarf for the rest of his life.

While he’s 20 years old, he’s just over 110 centimetres tall but, man, is he dynamite.

He speaks to us about his condition, his upbringing and what inspires him before treating us to a dance performance. He has been performing dance routines at schools to raise money for the Rare Diseases Society of SA to help patients cover their huge medical expenses.

We also had the King of Christian Comedy, Napoleon “Napsta” Masinga in the house. He prides himself on having a clean comedy set whenever he performs and that has currently set him apart from other local comedians on the scene.

Earlier this year, he organised the One Voice comedy show against Xenophobia which saw comedians from various African countries coming together to highlight the importance of unity as Africans and how we are stronger together than we are apart.
And, just like that, the show has wrapped up. We’re back again tomorrow, from 6-9AMon RISE FM in Mpumalanga and VUMA FM in KZN, bringing you the best breakfast show in the land.

2 Stations. 1 Man. 1 Mic. 1 Breakfast.
