The finale of the exciting second season of My Kitchen Rules South Africa takes place this Friday and although real-life besties Minenhle Ntuli and Nomthandazo Xaba, otherwise known as Minnie and Tee, have been booted off the competition, they’ve made some major waves. Their bubbly personalities have been a hit with audiences and execs at popular Durban-based radio station East Coast Radio who have officially added the duo to their line-up.

The duo will host the 03:00 – 06:00 slot on Saturday and Sunday, taking over from comedian Neil Green who moves to daytime to host Sunday 14:00 – 18:00.

East Coast Radio’s Programming Manager Zane Derbyshire tells us that “When I first saw them on My Kitchen Rules SA I knew that they had something special and I wanted to see how we could work with Minnie and Tee to develop them into radio stars. We will initially place them in our weekend training slot from 3-6am, but I am sure they will soon work their way up!”

Naturally, the duo are excited about their new career move. “Our lives are about to change, I’m so excited about the growth that lies ahead. A lot of people have contributed to where my career is now and their support is truly heartfelt. Don’t forget that your dreams are valid,” Minnie tells us. Tee adds that “I’m super excited to start this new chapter in my life. This is the type of thing you dream about when you’re kids and to see it manifest is honestly amazing.”
