In an effort to highlight the need for tolerance of same sex couples and their right to be married, Heart 104.9 FM, a Cape Town radio station is hosting an all-expenses paid wedding and honeymoon competition for two gay guys in search of a happy ending. And it’s all happening live on air.
The eight weeks voyage of love has been unfolding live on the Phat Joe’s daily breakfast show between 6 and 9am. The competition, two guys and a wedding - the only wedding where the groom ends up marrying the best man, however, has not been widely welcomed by every listener. Reports of listeners complaining about having their children listen to the show, and callers directing their ‘disgust’ at Naidoo, has grown considerably.
