 Are Skhumba And Thomas Fired?

Sunday world, one of the most popular news portals of South Africa, posted an article on the 12th of June stating the departure of Skhumba And Thomas from the show.

According to the report, the news was brought to the limelight by two staff members of Kaya Fm themself. They have asked to keep their identity secret as they are not allowed to communicate with the media regarding this topic.


One of the staff mentioned that the show is not generating adequate revenue from the radio station. They have been making the mornings of people filled with laughter and joy by their jokes and exciting manner of presenting those jokes.

Fans believe that the decision to take the show off the air will not benefit the station at all. Instead, they think the popularity of other shows on the station will decrease as well.

Why Are They Fired?

According to one of the staff members who disclosed the news to the media, Thomas Msengana and Skhumba Hlophe's show had to be discontinued because it was not popular among the targeted audience of the advertisement being shown in between the show.

He also stated that the show's ratings have gone down significantly in a few months.

He revealed that the initial plan was to discontinue Skhumba only as Thomas was working on the daytime show before joining Skhumba on the morning show.

The company believed that Skhumba was undoubtedly one of the most talented comedians, but he was not a radio material.

However, there has not been any official statement from the Kaya FM's side about this rumour.
