Minnie and Tee, from My Kitchen Rules SA fame, will join KZN’s East Coast Radio, this October. 

The student besties won the hearts of South Africans with their bubbly and vibrant personalities during the latest season of My Kitchen Rules South Africa Season 2 on M-Net. 

Minnie and Tee whose full names are Minenhle Ntuli and Nomthandazo Xaba respectively will host Saturdays and Sundays 3am-6am on East Coast Radio, from mid-October.

East Coast Radio’s Programming Manager Zane Derbyshire is excited about the addition of the BFFs with a zest for life, “When I first saw them on My Kitchen Rules SA I knew they had something special and I wanted to see how we could work with Minnie and Tee to develop them into radio stars. We will initially place them in our weekend training slot from 3-6am, but I am sure they will soon work their way up!”

Minnie said she has to pinch herself every day just to make sure it’s not a dream, “Our lives are about to change, I’m so excited about the growth that lies ahead. A lot of people have contributed to where my career is now and their support is truly heartfelt. Don’t ever forget that your dreams are valid.” 

Tee added, “I’m super excited to start this new chapter in my life. This is the type of thing you dream about when you’re a kid and to see it manifest is honestly amazing.”

The two will take over from well-loved Durban comedian and ECR presenter Neil Green, who moves to daytime to host Sundays 2pm-6pm. He replaces Lubz who leaves the station end-September.
