[LISTEN] Connect With The World: 947 Breakfast Club chat to 'Dave' in China

136 days ago


Every morning Anele and the 947 Breakfast will connect and share stories with people from around the world who are also in lockdown.

South Africa is on a 21 day lockdown, but so are many other countries around the world. Not only will we be checking in on our locals from Joburg, we would like to chat to our South African friends and family from around the world.

If you have a friend, family member or loved one who is currently somewhere outside of South Africa, send their details to our WhatsApp line 084 00 00 947, and we will try to have them on the show to check how they are keeping up...

The tea, chatted to ‘Dave’ (his alias to protect his identity)...

Currently in lockdown in Shenzhen (China). It’s a big city mainland side across from Hong Kong, and below Wuhan (about a 2 hour flight)

'Dave' was teaching, but the schools have all closed.

I am currently in my apartment, teaching online. No plans on coming back just yet, as I believe it’s safer here.


“In particular I’d like to mention the discrimination that has arisen towards foreigners after the CCP officials blamed the American army for introducing the virus”


Listen to the full conversation with someone who was at the heart of the pandemic when it broke out...

You know you’ve reached new levels when organizing your closet and having deep meaningful conversations with your pet become your “fun” things to do. Don’t get that bored – 947.co.za has all your lockdown entertainment needs… on lock!

21 Days of Lockdown with 947.

It’s just us putting some social distance between you and boredom. Because 947 loves you.


They’re full of laughs, loud and impossible not to love. In fact, you’re going to be obsessed with them. They’re the 947 Breakfast Club, and you’re more than welcome to join the club every Monday to Friday from 06:00 to 09:00.
