Im using zsh as my default shell and loving it. I have random themes enabled, and whenever I load a theme it displays a message on my terminal. How do I disable this message?

Im talking about
[oh-my-zsh] Random theme '/Users/r3dsm0k3/.oh-my-zsh/themes/ys.zsh-theme' loaded...

How to disable it from showing in the terminal ?
