Kaya 959 to Unathi- ‘Go. You’re fired’

Although details of the termination of the firing were not released, sources at the station confirmed the breaking news to SLM.

Kaya 959 media statement read:” Nkayi’s contract has ended prematurely due to certain conduct that rendered the relationship intolerable going forward. Kaya 959 can confirm that certain incidents had occurred, which resulted in the breakdown of the trust relationship between the two parties.

The business can further confirm that due process was followed and the decision was therefore made to part ways with Ms Nkayi.”

“The station would prefer not to be drawn into a debate around the details of what transpired in the interest of both parties. Safe to state that Ms Nkayi’s version of events has been carefully considered and unfortunately found wanting.” 

The Idols presenter and singer Unathi, joined Kaya 959 in February last year and hosted the midday show from 12pm to 3pm.  

She is known for speaking her mind and one who would not want to be caged.

She left Metro FM in 2017 and joined Kaya 959 after a three-year hiatus.

In an interview with Gareth Cliff following her exit, she said it felt like the right time to leave the station along with Glen Lewis. She also stated there was no bad blood with her former employer. 

“I pity them. There is a school of radio, and we love each other, and we are obsessed with radio, and it is all we talk about when we’re together,” she told Gareth Cliff.

“It’s knowing when to bow out graciously and gracefully; knowing when to be appreciative of the success. It was 10 years on Metro, six years on breakfast drive,” she was quoted.

Kaya 959 confirmed a replacement will be made soon. 

Unathi was not reachable at the time of publishing.
