Bob Mabena’s heartfelt 1 year death anniversary – Kaya FM

Tuesday, August 10, marked the first death anniversary of radio icon Bob Mabena. Here's how Kaya 959 (formerly Kaya FM), is ensuring that his contribution is forever immortalised on the South African radio history books.

August 10, 2021, marks a year since the passing of South African radio icon Bob Mabena, whose illustrious career laster over 3 decades.

To ensure that his contribution is forever imortilised on the South African history books, Kaya 959’s breakfast show presenters, Thomas and Skhumba, were joined on studio by celebrity guests including Melanie Bala, Glen Lewis, Dr Khumalo and many more, all who had known and loved “Uncle Bob” or “The Jammer” – as he was affectionately known.

“Most of us have had a Bob Mabena moment in our lives. Perhaps you knew him and worked with him, or like millions of South Africans, he was always a part of your life – connecting through the magic of the radio,” says Kaya 959 station director Sibongile Mtyali.

Listeners were encouraged to share their memories, and presenters are playing audio highlights of Bob from years gone by. Further, Kaya 959 is playing one of Bob’s favourite songs every hour, supported online with the hashtag #ForeverTheJammer and #JammerSongMoment.

Here are audio highlights from the Kaya 959 tribute:
