JOHANNESBURG – Broadcaster and singer Unathi Nkayi has spoken up about her verbal argument with former colleague and media personality Sizwe Dhlomo and her sudden axing at Kaya FM on Friday.

This month, City Press broke the news that the media personality had been axed by the radio station after a verbal argument between her and now former colleague Dhlomo.

The publication reported that Nkayi had filed a complaint with Kaya against the former 947 and 702 presenter, accusing him of verbal abuse.

Dhlomo then took to Twitter on the same day the article came out to disputing claims that he had verbally abused Nkayi.

Nkayi on Friday also broken her silence in a video on Instagram saying that she was told by Kaya FM to not speak on the matter: “I’ve been silenced by Kaya. I have received a letter that I may not speak on the matter publicly because of my contractual agreement we all have as freelancers. I was specifically told that I cannot use my platform to share my version of events.”

Referencing Dhlomo’s thread, Nkayi said she had never alleged that Dhlomo committed any act of gender-based violence against her.
