The SABC removed Unathi from the show following her Stellenbosch University comments on Twitter.

Idols judge and Metro FM DJ, Unathi Msengana has been suspended from the show she co-hosts with Glen Lewis, “The First Avenue”, with immediate effect.

The SABC removed Unathi from the show following her Stellenbosch University comments on Twitter, specifically her private conversation with one tweep who published her exchange with Msengana. Unathi called her a "psycho b**ch in the direct message.

Sowetan Live reported that SABC spokesperson Kaizer Kganyago said that Msengana was suspended for the things she tweeted her listeners after the show, not for her on-air comments.

"There was an engagement that was out of our control that happened on Twitter... the discussion continued on her Twitter page which is outside of our control but it has got an effect on us.

"(She was suspended) not necessarily because she works for us but it is also because of the topic that was on air on our platform," explained Kganyago.
