Miss V Candy joins Power FM

HARARE - Power FM has moved to plug the hole created by the departure of veteran radio and club DJ Davies Mugadza who has been appointed general manager of YAFM 91.8. by hiring former ZiFM DJs Miss V Candy and Marc Mandisoul.

The former ZiFM pair, which is currently hosting the glitzy Club E programme on ZBC-TV, is joining the Zimbabwe Broadcasting Station (ZBC) station on September 1.

Mandisoul, whose real name is Mark Mandishona, confirmed the development in an interview with the Daily News.

“Power FM is better for us because we are doing a television show with ZBC already and they are digitalising. We get to broadcast to 2,5 million people rather than 600 000.

“The management has great vision for the station and we are confident it will take the station back to the glorious days of Peter Johns and Simon Parkinson,” said Mandisoul.

He, however, added that they would initially join on a part-time basis due to other commitments elsewhere.

“We have many projects we are doing in music, film and television which will not be affected by this move but enhanced. We aim to bring a lot of exciting new content to radio.

“We are part of the trans-world radio network that includes other top DJs from around the world including Ryan Seacrest, Roger Goode and Bonang Matheba,” said Mandisoul.

The former ZiFM DJ, who is also a filmmaker, is confident that their imminent show will take on Zimbabwean radio to new heights.

“There will be exclusive interviews with international stars on our radio shows and cutting edge content in line with global trends. It’s way different from what we did at ZiFM, a whole new level,” he said.

Miss V Candy, who is cousin to celebrated former Radio 3 DJ Peter Johns, confirmed the move to Power FM which is facing stiff competition from ZiFM and Star FM.

“Yes we signed a contract with Power FM; starting on September 1 to go on air,” was all she could say.

In a previous interview with the Daily News, Miss V Candy revealed that Entertainment Afrika — a production house she co-owns with Mandisoul — had lined up several media projects.

“We are excited about a new television show we have lined up called Presenter Search Zimbabwe that aims to find the next best television and radio presenter and give people out there an opportunity to showcase their talents and live their dreams.

“We hope to begin showing it around September, October there about. We are working on a number of projects from radio, TV, film and music,” she said.
