DJ Fresh On Quitting His Law Degree For A Radio Career  

The talented radio host DJ Fresh had to quit law school to follow his dream of being a radio presenter. The radio presenter took to social media to reveal his radio career, which began in July 1996. This is after fans congratulated him for taking the best afternoon driver presenter award at The Radio Awards 2020. The event took place online last week and was hosted by comedian Loyiso Madinga

In a thread on Twitter, the radio star went down memory lane to share his story on how he dumped law school to get on a career in radio. He started the line by appreciating his fans for the support. “Thanks for all of your kind messages and well wishes. You might or might now know, but I Never make a song and dance of awards. The first and last time I did so, was in 1994. Let me explain…[sic],” he tweeted.

“I had been on the radio since July 1992, and increasingly realized that law school is not for me! Come winter 1994, I flunked out of law school. A month later, I applied to study media at Boston Media House at the Rand Afrikaans University,” he added.

Fresh explained how after just three months of being on the radio and wondering whether he made the right move. He got recognized with a radio DJ of the year award. And that was the recognition he needed to prove to himself that he had indeed made the right choice.

Although he was even certain that this was what he wanted to do, convincing his parents was not easy. “I remember saying to my mom, ‘if this award does not show y’all how serious I am about radio, then nothing ever will’.”

He ended the thread by thanking radio station 947 for the platform they have given him. And he thanked all his fans who have supported him throughout the years. “Most importantly, thanks to every single listener to have walked this radio journey with me! I am, because of you!”
