Pearl Thusi has been suspended by the SABC over an on-air rant about her colleague Bonang Matheba.
Pearl was suspended with her co-host Phat Joe, after listeners complained to the SABC about the duo’s alleged daily bashing of Bonang and rapper AKA on their Metro FM radio show.
Sunday World reported that SABC and Metro FM bosses reviewed the show’s tapes following the complaints and concluded that Thusi and Phat Joe had a case to answer.
Speaking to The Juice, SABC spokesperson Kaizer Kganyago confirms that the duo has been taken off air due to a conflict that Pearl has with management.
“There are issues between Pearl Thusi and management at Metro. For that reason they are not being scheduled until they have dealt with the issue between them,” Kaizer says.
He could not confirm that the issue was in fact the Pearl and Bonang drama but, it’s pretty easy to guess right? What else could it be?
The two have been involved in a number of incidents on social media throwing shade at each other like nobody’s business.
