Dineo Ranaka is gatvol of the hate that has been thrown her way ever since she's ventured into DJing and she has a stern message for haters. 

It looks like folks didn't have a problem with Dineo being a reality TV star, singer or radio personality but for some bizarre reason her plans to be a DJ has rubbed some people up the wrong way. But sis ain't here for none of that!

"Y’all haters still gonna spend your time mad AF cause I’m moving yo! To put it simply y’all staying woke on me but sleeping on your damn selves. I'ma join you though and give myself all that attention," she said on Twitter. 

The Metro FM personality recently launched her side hustle as a DJ, which was met with different reactions.

Dineo faced more negativity when DJ Brazo Wa Afrika accused her of having played a mixtape instead of a live set while at a gig in Polokwane a few weeks ago.

She has since defended herself and made it clear that she was actually playing a live set. Dineo added that she would not apologise for being a fast learner and playing "so good" that people assume it's a pre-recorded mix.

When one DJ congratulated her for learning the skill as quick as she has, she said that she's decided to keep on shining and wouldn't be bothered about naysayers.

"So much more to learn and play around with. I’m here for the long haul. It’s not for me to convince them. It’s for them to get better not bitter I guess."

Dineo ain't letting anybody mess with her shine or her guap!

In the meantime, Metro is going through a tricky stage following the annual line-up changes that has now seen Somizi join Dineo on The Bridge.

Somgaga, who has been DJ Fresh's sidekick for the past year, showed his excitement to be moving on social media. His fans were a bit sceptical about the pairing and even said Fresh Breakfast with DJ Fresh was the perfect balance for the flamboyant personality.

They expressed their disapproval with tweets.
