SA’s biggest urban radio station 99.2 YFM  announced their 2013 line-up yesterday with a fresh and dynamic shift in musical direction moving forward.

Best believe you going to get your mind blown away. Reading through my tweets today made me wanna be on radio 24/7.

YFM – in line with their ongoing vision to develop and create a platform for fresh young talent, took huge leaps in 2012 launching several new faces alongside the new YTKO music mix format. In addition to a string of successes over the past year, YFM helped propel the careers of new upcoming young talent, including YTKO DJ’s Shimza, ZanD and Josi Chave through this new musical platform. Having introduced the market to a new era in DJ culture, YTKO sparked huge interest and featured several high-profile local and guest DJ’s over the last twelve months.

This year YFM will continue to spearhead the game by further showcasing young talent and developing a few new Y Academy personalities including Mantsoe, Sol Phenduka  and also Smash Afrika. These emerging personalities will feature more prominently on the YFM airwaves as part of long terms plans for them to occupy more prime radio spots in the near future.
