With a number of the radio station’s leading presenters leaving the station, it begs the question ‘Is everything ok at the station?’
Tbo Touch, Phat Joe, Pearl Thusi and Refiloe Mpakanyane leaving in a short space of time, rumours have began to circulate that the Metro fm isn’t well administered and has resulted in their top talent lining up to leave the station.
Here’s a list of all the radio celebs that have left the national broadcaster
- Tbo Touch
The radio DJ was a very public supporter of SABC Chief Operations officer Hlaudi Motsoeneng. Touch has now teamed up with fellow controversial star Gareth Cliff
2. Phat Joe
Majota Mandlakayise Isaac Khambule, otherwise known as Phat Joe, has been in the South African entertainment industry for decades. The multi-talented presenter brought a big audience with him to his slot on MetroFM, so it was a shock when he announced that he was leaving to join East Coast Radio.
3. Refilwe Mpakanyane
Mpakanyane was Tbo Touch’s co-host but didn’t announce her departure from MetroFM when her male counterpart did, but soon afterwards. Her departure left the door open for replacements Mo Flava and Lerato Kganyago.
4. Pearl Thusi
Thusi has not officially left the radio station but was Phat Joe’s co-host at one point and has not been on air for a prolonged period of time while she films Quantico in America. The star has also reportedly tweeted about leaving the station. During her stint with Phat Joe, the two were suspended and reinstated.
