Ukhozi FM radio personality Chilli M has been fired. The news came through a statement by the SABC which said the popular DJ’s contract has been terminated with immediate effect.
”The South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) has terminated with immediate effect, the contract of Mr Vukani ‘Chilli M’ Masinga. The termination follows an investigation into allegations of payola. Mr Masinga admitted to accepting some form of enticement in exchange for playlisting music of the people who enticed him,” the statement read.
The station said they will do an investigation into Chilli M’s alleged acceptance of enticement.
“The SABC would like to remind the public that there is a process at all its 18 radio stations to submit music and would like to encourage members of the public not to engage in payola and should they encounter such challenges to bring it to the attention of the organization. The organization will continue to have a zero tolerance for fraud and corruption.”
