It seems there is never a dull day at Metro FM. First it was the drama between popular presenters and television “it girls” The Real Black Pearl, Pearl Thusi and the Queen B, Bonang Matheba, which eventually led to the suspension of Thusi and her co-host Phat Joe over their continued belittling of colleague, Bonang Matheba on their radio show, which managed had a serious problem with. Although the suspension was later lifted, Pearl was kept off air when she decided to ditch another SABC gig, music show, Live on SABC1, for a bigger and better opportunity on rival television station, Lip Sync Battle Africa on DSTV’s MTV channel, this suspension was also lifted and Pearl was once again allowed to be on air.
Now it seems that the executives at SABC’s Radio Park have gone and suspended another popular DJ, TBO Touch. TBO Touch was apparently suspended last week for amongst other allegations; his refusal to take instructions from station manager, Sibongile Mtyali; failing to do live reads for car brand Hyundai and as a result losing the station revenue of R15-million in advertising, as the contract was subsequently cancelled; and lastly for playing his own music and not following the station’s music list.
But it seems that TBO Touch will be back on the air doing what he does best, albeit it has been revealed that he has been issued with a final warning notice from his bosses.
Well, all we can say is welcome back to the airwaves TBO’s.
