Family Feud rocks the airwaves as 947 and Kaya FM take on each other in a charity drive.


In the fifth episode of Family Feud, which airs on e.tv this Sunday 3rd of May, radio personalities add a huge dose of entertainment while raising funds for their charities.

When 947 and Kaya FM meet on set this week, they will be pitting themselves against each other in a bid to see how much money they can raise for their charities of choice.

947 puts their support behind the Lambano Sanctuary, which was founded on the vision of Melanie Prinsloo in 2001 to help HIV positive children with little chance of living. Today Lambano provides full-time care for children who live with life limiting and life threatening illnesses at their four Forever Homes and they also have the only paediatric medical step-down and hospice facility in Gauteng.

The Mohato School For Autism in Soweto is the charity of choice for Kaya FM and is close to team leader David O’Sullivan’s heart as a father to an autistic son. In addition to a specially designed educational programme, the school focuses on providing the special needs children with love and care.

Hosted by entertainer, businessman and philanthropist Steve Harvey, the game show calls on two family teams in each episode to compete in naming the most popular responses to gathered survey questions in order to win cash and prizes. The game consists of five rounds and each correctly guessed answer is worth a number of points. When a team fails to answer a question, they receive a strike and after three strikes the opposing team has the chance to ‘steal’ the points on the board. At the end of Round 5, the losing team takes their haul home and the other team goes on to play Fast Money in a bid to win the jackpot.
