A station employee anonymously revealed that Dineo climbed on a table with expensive equipment and started dancing.
Her Umlando challenge caught the attention of her station manager Kina Hlengethwa who called Dineo to his office and asked her to apologise for her ill discipline.
When Dineo refused to apologise Kina suspended her from the station and plans to drag her before a disciplinary hearing soon.
The source told the publication:
“Apparently her argument was that she could not have damaged the mixer because she was dancing only with her socks on her feet and not with her shoes on.”
“This created an impression that she was not remorseful and was defiant.”
Other sources from Metro FM have revealed that she faces the axe.
Dineo Ranaka would be the second biggest radio act to be fired by a radio station after Kaya 959 fired axed Idols SA judge Unathi Nkayi in November.
Unathi was fired following a verbal altercation she had with her colleague, TV and radio personality, Sizwe Dhlomo.
Dineo’s suspension saw Thando Thabethe and her 947 team showing solidarity with her by dancing on their station’s furniture as well.
Dineo’s colleague added that the part where Ranaka dances on the mixer was not part of the video in the public domain.
“Thando and her colleagues were dancing on studio furniture, which is just less expensive. Dineo was dancing on a mixer and had she damaged it, the whole station would have shut down. That is the difference.”
Dineo Ranaka could not be reached for comment at the time of publishing this article.
