Metro FM personality, tv presenter and all-around humble guy – Mo Flava gives back.

Born in Dube Soweto, Moeti Tsiki, popularly known as Mo Flava, embarked on a media studies diploma at Boston Media House, majoring in Radio Broadcasting and Programming as well as Journalism. His focus and ambition, driven by an intense interest and passion for media at large led him on a pathway to success. From presenting a popular music television show to currently hosting the hottest morning radio show, The Morning Fix on Metro FM, Mo Flava displays a unique blend of flair, charisma and humility.

It’s with this humility that Mo Flava partnered with Boston Media House to offer 10 aspiring students, interested in studying radio, bursaries. Mo’s interest in radio stems from the medium’s ability to relate to different people in a very personal and interactive manner. He views radio as one of the main drivers not only of information but also of popular culture and perception.

There’s a definite science to radio and Mo Flava knows how to mix up the right chemistry. Life is about knowing when to take the right opportunities presented before you, and as successful and influential as Mo Flava has become, he often knows when to cash in the most opportune moments. The bursary provides aspiring students with the necessary tools to embark on the very same journey Mo Flava once took in navigating, overcoming and conquering the radio industry. In partnering with Boston Media House, Mo Flava presents the first step to students to potentially becoming the next radio legends of our time.

Catch Mo Flava on The Morning Fix, Weekdays at 08:00 – 10:00. Exclusive to Metro FM.
