SABC1’S new daytime talk show, Daily Thetha, has been dealt a blow barely a year since its launch.

Insiders claimed the show’s head of content Msizi Nkosi left the production “without any clear reasons”.

But Msizi, who left his producing job at Ukhozi FM’s Woza Nabangani Bakho afternoon drive-time show for Daily Thetha, cleared the air on his
Facebook page.

According to the talented broadcaster, he was merely taking time off to focus on his new venture, a salon called EdKing Lifestyle, based in Southgate Mall, south of Joburg.

Said Msizi in some of his posts: “I did come back to Jozi, for four years. I helped make the show the biggest afternoon drive show in Africa. I then published a national bestseller. I’m a columnist. I’ve just launched a boutique salon on Saturday.
“But I’ve had to resign as head of content for Daily Thetha to focus on this for the next three months and to grow this baby. I’ll come back to the media world soon.

“In terms of material possessions, I’m not successful yet. In terms of following your dreams, resilience and defying the odds, I’m successful beyond measure. I’m blessed. I keep relaunching myself. For me, this is life . . . I’m living. I’m
following my dreams. I’m pushing boundaries. Don’t stop dreaming.”

When contacted for comment, Msizi said: “I’m not leaving per se, but I’m taking a three-month break to focus on my business.

“As to when I’ll be back will be
decided after three months.”
