Missy D, who was synonymous with the former Club Asia radio brand in London, confirmed the news in a Whatsapp message.

I have humbly accepted and so will be on live on the BBC ASIAN NETWORK at 5PM for a whole hour mixing up in complete DJ Missy D style. I promise you it’ll definitely very different to anything you’d expect or heard before! Most importantly I’ll be pulling out all those Old Skool Bollywood, Bhangra, Pakistani, Asian Urban and Mainstream Tooooones from back in the days. Proper Old Skool indeed! I’m very much looking forward to it and sharing a bit of me with you. See you live at 5pm Bank Holiday Monday on the BBC Asian Network, 1458AM, DAB & Online. The countdown begins ji….”
Missy D kicked off her radio career in Birmingham with Radio XL in the mid-90s, followed by Sabras Radio in Leicester for three years as Breakfast and Drivetime presenter. Her longest radio tenure was with Club Asia between 2001 and 2009, where she became a household name. She then remained a part of the then rebranded Buzz Asia when Avtar Lit acquired Club Asia in 2009. Missy D then decided to leave the station after managing it for a year to set up her online radio service – Luv Asia Radio between 2012 and 2014. Since then Missy D has turned DJ under her alter ego, DJ Missy D.
Missy D returns on-air with BBC Asian Network’s Old Skool DJ Takeover Special on Bank Holiday Monday (28th August) at 17:00.
