Media personality Dineo Ranaka threw shade at Kaya FM as she revealed that she is launching a make up brand. Dineo was fired from the radio station in July this year, just a year after she left Metro FM. She then decided to join MacG’s Podcast and Chill with her own twist.

The radio personality said “thank God Kaya fired me” as she revealed her brand Luv DR Beauty which includes foundations, lipsticks and eyeshadow palettes. She also expressed gratitude for her depression.

“And who ever said Rome was built in a day? No one. To ALL my entrepreneurial fam, this business journey no balance that’s why it’s one foot in front of the other. It’s hard and your well being will take strain but let me tell you something, if you’re willing to focus, isolate, work hard/smart and reflect… you’ll be healthy. You’ll be ok,” she wrote.

“THANK GOD Kaya fired me 🕯️🕯️🕯️🕯️🪬🕯️🕯️🕯️. Actually it wasn’t Kaya that fired me, GOD DID! 👑🏆👑,” she continued.

This is not the first time Dineo threw shade at the radio station. In July, she confirmed that she was fired from Kaya FM and toasted to being “free”. Was this a jab at Kaya FM?

“I think I’m a unicorn 🦄 #DineoOnSexnStuff 🦄 A new addition to the Podcast & Chill Network. Here’s to being free 🥂Drops Tuesday 3 pm YouTube x Spotify,” she wrote.

She also expressed gratitude and appreciation in another post. Take a look…

“When we are supported, we soar. Behind closed doors, I have such a formidable support structure. Siblings, parents, my kids, my lover, my friends. They give me wings. Spanning the size of the biggest eagle you can ever imagine. Now when I include your support…?? My God, I feel superhuman,” she wrote.

“Thank you for holding and keeping space for me whilst my wings were being nursed. It’s all going to be an enjoyable journey of self-discovery. Researching mental health matters through conversations about sexual health and pleasure. From where I’m sitting, life looks like a vacation doing what I love and taking you with me. I love and appreciate each of you 🍬🦄🤍,” she continued.
