Bring Mr Varshan Sookhun back as the Bollywood Billboard presenter on Lotus FM!

Does Lotus FM/the SABC hire presenter's based on a criteria or is there something underlying that we, the public are missing?

Mr Varshan Sookhun is a well respected man for his immense knowledge of Bollywood and is solely responsible for bringing people to Lotus FM purely for his love for Bollywood. He hosted the Bollywood billboard on Saturday's, for years and has recently been replaced by an incompetent presenter. Now I know that may sound harsh but if you listen to this presenter speak, she sounds nasal, repeats herself an uncountable number of times, gets her facts constantly wrong and cannot speak professionally if her life depended on it.

I ask you, what is the criteria for hiring such presenter's at Lotus FM? This particular female is not a youth icon and is extremely unprofessional with her constant lack of RJ skills.

When there are ladies such as Kajal Bagwandeen and Riona Maharaj (crazy Rio) who are both fabulous inspirations to the youth, with a large social media presence and the ability to construct proper sentences while having a knowledge of Bollywood why would you hire someone so incompetent?

The question is, does Lotus listen to their shows at any point to notice the inadequecy or are they ignorant to South African Indians wanting their original chart Master back?

Listen to your presenters, especially this particular one and notice the following points:
(1). The amount of times she says uh or um (I counted in one minute it was approximately 12 times)
(2). Her immaturity in her "oh ma gaad's, etc"
(3). How annoying her voice is to listeners with the way she speaks through her nose
(4). The amount of times her Bollywood facts are incorrect is pathetic.
-for example, today she said "Ishaan Katter will be making his Bollywood debut with the film Beyond the clouds and is Shahid Kapoor's younger brother. I would like to see if his family has had an influence on him but I already know that he has had no influence and will be making his Bollywood debut with Sridevis daughter in May''
-she also said in a previous week Salman Khan is in jail and was getting requests for him but he was out on bail.
-in a tribute to Avicci she played Priyanka Chopras In my city, really? You're the Bollywood presenter and you're talking about an English DJ?
There are many other instances but I hope I have made my point.

On behalf of the public, we demand to know 'what' did she do to replace a legend like Varshan Sookhun, when she has absolutely no experience or professionalism in comparison?

Let's save Lotus FM before it's too late!
