Cape Town – According to reports by Sunday World, DJ Tbo Touch was sacked from Metro FM after costing the SABC a loss of R15m in revenue because he allegedly refused to air a Hyundai advert.
The publication further claims that the controversial radio DJ was also involved in a “physical confrontation” with a producer, ignored instructions by his boss Sibongile Mtyali and allegedly violated the station’s play list policy.
Tbo Touch refused to comment on the claims and referred all media requests to Kaizer Kganyago, SABC spokesperson.
DRUM magazine reported last week that Tbo’s radio silence was due to the fact that his Monday Replenishment gospel segment on Touchdown was cut down to just 20 minutes instead of an hour.
However Kaizer Kganyago denied the claims at the time saying there was no feud between Tbo and Sibongile.
The radio station gig wasn’t Tbo’s only income however. The local business mogul has his own range of lifestyle products which include fragrances, wine and condoms.
