"Nobody has a God-given right to remain at the SABC" - Tbo Touch

Rightfully so, Thabo Molefe has uncontested bragging rights.

At his helm, the afternoon drive show on Metro FM grew into the largest weekday commercial radio show in the country

Speaking to Shanaaz Prince, the former Metro FM DJ spoke about his influence on people. "You can't be in my space and not be changed with the energy inside me," he said.

Currently focusing on his own ventures, Touch Central and Touch Cabernet, the outspoken Touch is amped about their prospects.

"What I'm building now, if it works, you'll understand the frustration I had for 12 years not being able to expand."

On him parting ways with the public broadcaster, Touch said there was no bad blood. Infact, he felt indebted to the SABC for opening up doors for me. He however does not regret leaving.

"Nobody has a God-given right to remain at the SABC," he said. "Sometimes we overstay a position when we should have been long gone."

We might see Touch back at the SABC in the near future though.

"The only time I'll go back is as CEO. But if I don't get it before I'm 40, I'm not interested."
