Despite the SABC confirming that Metro FM DJ Phat Joe was not suspended this past Saturday – rumours surrounding the reason why he left his show mid-air continue to fly
But nothing could be further from the truth.
“I was not suspended. I will be back on the show this Saturday,” Phat Joe said.
The DJ caused a stir over the weekend when he suddenly disappeared off-air.
While some social media users speculated that he had been suspended and that a video of him being yanked off-air was circulating, Joe says that he chose to leave early because he wasn’t feeling well.
“I was feeling sick and I had a live event in the evening. I had to sacrifice one or the other,” he said.
Phat Joe’s explanation comes after SABC spokesperson Kaizer Kganyago told TMG Entertainment on Saturday that the station had not suspended Joe.
