Metro FM mistakenly plays Casper’s unedited track Malome and social media fans condemn the station for playing the unclean song.
Social media users were left in great surprise on Thursday morning after the unclean song played live on air during a singalong segment.
Breakfast show host Mo Flava asked listeners to send through voice notes of them singing the song. But it all backfired when a few dirty words from Casper’s song were mistakenly played.
Listeners were disappointed and took to social media telling Mo to apologize for the clumsiness.
Mo didn’t instantly express regret when the song ended, but, after being overwhelmed with complaints, told audiences that it was down to a fleeting error. He was, however, not around for comment when called by TshisaLIVE.
When approached for comment, SABC spokesperson Mmoni Seapolelo said: “The SABC can confirm the incident which took place this morning and as a responsible public broadcaster which is guided by the BCCSA we regret the incident and reiterate the apology which was offered by Mo Flava on air this morning”.
“There are systems in place to ensure that all the content which is broadcast on our platforms is checked and this isolated incident is highly regrettable”.
For you guys (metro fm) to play the uncensored version of that Cassper’s song and then go to a kids segment straight after, I’m shook.#themorningflava
