Years later, Mo Flava landed one of the most coveted slots on radio, the Morning Show on Metro FM. He revealed he almost turned it down because it came earlier than he was prepared for. He took over from DJ Fresh and revealed that it was difficult for him because he had a lot of anxiety. He said, “This is a defining moment for me. It came a lot sooner than I expected, and it’s not even something that I wanted to do, actually. I never thought that one day I would do a breakfast show on Metro.” He left Metro FM in March 2023, eight years after being with the station.
