METRO FM radio presenter Thabo Molefe, who’s popularly known as T-bo Touch, is out of trouble and will be back on air on Monday.


The presenter of Touchdown, a popular afternoon drive show that airs weekdays on Metro FM, was taken off air over the allegations that he had refused to read an advert live on air.


It’s alleged that his actions cost the SABC radio station R15 million. The advertiser apparently pulled out of an agreement with the SABC after T-bo Touch refused to read the advert.



There are also allegations that the radio presenter had a screaming match with the station manager, Sibongile Mtyali. But insiders at Metro FM are quick to dismiss this claim.


Move! can reveal that T-bo Touch was locked in a lengthy meeting with Sibongile and other top bosses at the SABC on Thursday. This is where the parties reached a decision to allow the presenter back on air.


“T-bo Touch was actually sabotaged by some of the people who hate him within the SABC. There are people who want to get him fired from his show as they feel that he is doing a great job. These people have their own agendas. T-bo Touch didn’t have any issues with Sibongile and he respects her as his boss. The rumour that the two had a screaming match is not true,” says the insider at the SABC.


During the meeting, he was told to adhere to the station’s programming policies.


“It was a tense meeting and T-bo Touch was told to abide by the station’s policies. He was told that he would continue with his show because he knows what the listeners want. T-bo Touch has worked hard to put the show where it is today,” says our informant.


Move! understands that the presenter is planning to throw a big birthday bash at  Harem Club in Rosebank, where he will also celebrate his return to Metro FM.


T-bo Touch refused to comment on the allegations and simply said, “Speak to the SABC spokesperson, Kaizer Kganyago, about the matter.”


Sibongile also refused to comment and referred all the queries to Kaizer.


When asked for comment, Kaizer said, “This is a matter between Metro FM and T-bo Touch. We cannot comment any further.
