SA reacts to Penny Ntuli’s first day on the job: ‘Sounds amazing’

South African radio personality Penny Ntuli left social media users outraged after revealing how much Gagasi FM offered to pay her per show. Heading online, the media darling shared that they were offering her only R2800 per month or R711, 98 per show.

Her revelation left many social media users slamming the KwaZulu-Natal-based radio station.

Shortly after her story broke, she was offered a job at Jozi FM and judging by social media’s reaction to her first show, she is well on her way to success.

KwaZulu-Natal radio station Gagasi FM found itself trending after presenter Penny Ntuli revealed that she had resigned from the station.

According to Penny who shared a lengthy open letter on social media, her decision to leave comes after she was offered only R2800 per month.

The said amount was for the graveyard show on Sundays between 1:00 and 4:00.

“It’s been an amazing two years there. I am grateful to be considered as one of the talents that have been given an opportunity to showcase their talents once again in the new season on your platform.

“However, the salary of R2 800 per month on my offer letter or contract is not something I can sustain my life with,” Ntuli wrote in her resignation.

The admission left social media users shocked as they discussed the salary offer and how “unreasonable” it is.

Soon Gagasi FM topped trend lists and later threatened to take legal action against Penny for revealing the offer they had sent her.

This did not stop Johannesburg-based radio station Jozi FM from offering the young presenter a job.


Heading online, she shared how she booked an early flight. She also opened up about being excited for the new opportunity.

“I woke up at 5 am today. Excited for my first day at work. Please welcome me to Jozi FM 105.8 (Channel 878 on DStv),” she wrote

Jozi FM has also taken to social media to officially welcome Ntuli: “Welcome to a new era of captivating conversations! Join us as the dynamic Penny Ntuli takes the helm of the Mid-Morning Chatshow on Jozi FM for the very first time.

“Get ready for exhilarating discussions, fresh perspectives, and endless inspiration! Let the journey begin,” the station wrote.

Many who watched her do her first show for the station were wowed by her on-air skills. A number of them have headed online to wish her well.

“WTF!!! she sounds amazing and all needs is someone who believes in her talent…” one person wrote while another said:

“Awwwwwww so thrilled for her!!! Yes, baby girl, do your thing! God-given talent honestly cannot be stopped.”
