Bogus Doctor, Matthew Lani, has become a talk of the nation this evening, Monday, 27 November, after being afforded an interview on the biggest commercial radio station in the country, METRO FM.

METRO FM HOSTS MATTHEW LANI ON PRIME SLOT

Lani, only credible as a popular TikTok influencer (not much in the health profession), joined MetroTalk host Faith Mangope this evening at 8pm to talk all things relating to his controversial life.

However, METRO FM listeners did not take kindly to the interview as many were puzzled by the reason behind giving a deceiver such a huge platform.

LISTNERS HAVE THEIR SAY ON THE TIKTOK INFLUENCER

Here’s what some had to say:

Please METRO FM better the community than selling us poison. Mxm. Give a platform where it is due to change lives, young fashion makers, creatives, entrepreneurs and all can be happy for such opportunity”.

Sabrina Chiloane said: “That’s why I have stopped listening to Radio Metro, they have dropped the ball…”

Maurice Pete asked: “Oh come on. Why is he being celebrated with airtime?”

Sivenathi Silver September said: “You could be giving this air time to a talented individual who needs a career boost instead of giving it to this guy”.
