Say what?!

Thando Thabethe left the TL shook with her revelations on why she left 5FM earlier this evening.

Just a month ago it was announced that the radio host was resigning from the station after a 5 year stint.

Although she mentioned that she was leaving in order to focus on other things, we couldn't help but question this rather sudden exit.

Earlier today she finally decided to spill piping hot tea in a very lengthy Twitter thread that left everyone aghast.


Thando narrates that after the yearly shuffle at the station, the Thabooty show had been renewed for another year, that is when she tried to negotiate for a raise and 2 weeks leave to shoot her TV drama Housekeepers.

Apparently from the thread that was her mistake.

Her show was promptly cancelled, and the powers that be were told that she has asked for an unreasonable amount of money and that she wanted to take 6 weeks off.

Her replacement along with Thando's colleagues were all told about the new development but the owner of the show, Thando, was the last to know.




As if that was not enough Thando claims they offered her the Sunday graveyard shift as consolation for cancelling her show. The starlet felt like after 11 years in radio that was an insult so she promptly declined it and resigned.



Industry peers Nokuthula Mavuso, Zola Nombona and Dj Fresh, who was also treated unfairly and fired by Metro Fm, were shocked at how she was treated and sent their love and support.
