On Saturday, 9 November 2019, Cape Town musician, Chad Saaiman, joined Carl Wastie on the Coca-Cola Top40SA to chat about his latest single, 'Are You Down', which features Mariechan of Jamali.
During the interview, Chad revealed how often his name is mispronounced - and it turned out that Chad was not the only person who suffers from this, as Carl Wastie also recalled a failed attempt one of the security guards, who was also a fan, called him on his first day of work at Kfm 94.5.
Carl took the opportunity of having Chad in-studio to test Chad on some of his own songs, by playing a few split seconds of a random section of a song and seeing if he knew which track it was. Despite a massive curveball thrown into the mix, Chad showed that he knows his stuff.
Whilst talking about the new single, Chad mentioned how he and Mariechan met - and you're never gonna believe it... on Coca-Cola Pop Stars back in the day, when 101 (pronounced "One-Oh-One") - who's debut single was 'Who's It Gonna Be' - won the reality singing competition that found talented individuals from across the country and created a group with them.
TUNE IN TO THE COCA-COLA TOP40 SA WITH CARL WASTIE EVERY SATURDAY, 10AM - 2PM!
