GABORONE, BOTSWANA – When the 2020 Yarona FM Music Awards (YAMAs) nominees were announced last week Thursday at Cigar Lounge in the leafy suburb of Phakalane, social media was abuzz on who should have made the cut. Our interest was also sparked hence why this week we focus in the Social Media award category, which has among others, Banyezus, real name Banyana Ntshole (27).

Particularly because, she has become the first radio personality from a different and competing radio station to be nominated for the YAMAs. She is Duma FM’s newbie. She is the co-presenter of Bdub-5 season 3 that just premiered this month. Apart from being behind the mic, she is a budding event MC. Born and raised in Gaborone, the Morwa lass dropped out of Limkokwing University of Creative Technology where she was pursuing Broadcasting (TV & Radio). However, that did not deter her from realizing her childhood dream hence she is this week’s crush…
