IDOLS South Africa judge and radio personality, Unathi Nkayi has been fired from her job as Kaya 959 presenter.
Unathi joined the radio station in February last year, hosting the Midday Joy show during the weekdays from 1200hours to 1500hours.
In a statement released Wednesday, Kaya 959 said a replacement will be announced in due course.
The statement confirming the termination of her contract reads: “Kaya 959 can confirm the contract of presenter Ms Unathi Nkayi has been terminated, effective immediately.
“Ms Nkayi’s contract has ended prematurely due to certain conduct that has rendered the relationship intolerable going forward.
“Kaya 959 can confirm that certain incidents had occurred, which resulted in the breakdown of the trust relationship between the two parties.
The business can further confirm that due process was followed and the decision was therefore made to part ways with Ms Nkayi.
“The station would prefer not to be drawn into a debate around the details of what transpired in the interest of both parties.
“Safe to state that Ms Nkayi’s version of events have been carefully considered and found wanting.”
