The South African Broadcasting Corporation and one of SA’s top personalities have decided to end their working relationship after the broadcaster’s refusal to allow Bonang to continue a World Cup Lifestyle show on SuperSport.
According to a rep for Bonang, the broadcaster claims that no talent on any SABC platform is allowed to be on any other broadcasters across any mediums.
Bonang and her management could not agree to these terms, as it does not align with Matheba’s future business plans.
“Metro FM is an exceptional station and it is a pity that my journey with them has been so short. I am an independent freelancer and have been working peacefully with all broadcasters over the years. My future potential cannot be jeopardised by accepting terms that will not grow my career. I could not agree to the SABC’s blanket terms – in restricting me to work with other broadcasters, even though my contract with them was on radio. Thank you to the team at Metro FM for a wonderful time thus far. Onward and upward!” she said.
You can catch Bonang every weekend on SuperSport at 13:00 for the duration of the World Cup.She is also on Clash of the Choirs every Sunday at 17:30 only on Mzansi Magic.
