Masechaba Ndlovu’s interview with Mo Flava, on The Morning Flava on Friday morning.ue to popular demand, SABC’s Metro FM was forced to make a U-turn in their decision to cancel
“Power to the people and the people shall govern.”
On Thursday the SABC had informed Masechaba Ndlovu that the interview was canceled.
“Unfortunately, I have just been informed that the management of Metro FM (has) decided to cancel my Interview with Mo Flava on The Morning Flava that was scheduled for tomorrow (Friday) morning, for reasons unbeknown to me,” wrote Masechaba Ndlovu.
Just before 18:00 (CAT) on Thursday, Masechaba Ndlovu updated the fuming social media folks and said that “Due to popular demand, the show will go on. Thank you for your unwavering support, South Africa. Please tune into The Morning Flava tomorrow at 6am for my exclusive interview with Mo Flava. I am truly humbled.”
In encouraging people to tune into Metro FM on Friday morning, Masechaba Ndlovu said that “let’s continue to change the narrative.”
According to reports last year Masechaba Ndlovu was sacked by Metro FM for her controversial interview with Gqom musician Babes Wodumo.
In the said interview, Masechaba Ndlovu allegedly confronted Babes Wodumo and asked her about allegations that she was being abused by her boyfriend and fellow musician Mampintsha.
During that interview, Masechaba Ndlovu was talking to Babes Wodumo about the abuse she allegedly experienced from her lover and business partner Mampintsha.
“… So many times she pulled back which is her prerogative, people are allowed to change their minds, people are allowed to pull back. So on the day that she came it also so happened that she has a single to release. Her phone was being blown up by (Mampintsha) who was then her ex-lover because he could hear her on the radio.
“This young lady started shaking and I remember asking her is that Mampintsha and she said yes. I remember all of my ancestors and possibly all of the spirits on the planet just coming through me because there was no way I was gonna sit and watch a young girl continue to be abused and continue to be oppressed in the way that she was. That’s when I said to her don’t say anymore because I didn’t want to compromise her.
“I told her that I know you’re being abused and granted our job is to ask questions. I removed myself from my job at that moment and I decided to be a human being and to be a woman because she was afraid to reveal this herself on air because of the fact that he was verbally abusing her on the phone and, threatening her,” said Masechaba Ndlovu on Friday morning.
Masechaba Ndlovu said that she was talking more to Mampintsha and making sure that they pull Babes Wodumo out of the relationship.
Masechaba said that South Africa is still very secretive about abuse, which is not a private matter.
“Abuse is a crime. You do not ask for permission to remove someone from an abusive relationship, you do it. You do not ask for permission to save someone’s life because this was a life and death matter. Now that it’s out, it’s much more difficult for him to abuse her. But now the question remains, how do you save someone who doesn’t wanna be saved? There’s something called battered wife syndrome and it is a real thing, so I am pleading with the nation to take it easy on Babes Wodumo. Take it easy, don’t give up on her. There’s still so much potential there.
She said that she personally will never give up on Babes Wodumo.
“We surrounded her with an exit strategy and that exit strategy was legal advice to get back the money that is owed to her. That exit strategy was… and shout out to the man ‘Not In My Name’ who gave her physical body protection, who followed her everywhere so that we protect her from him,” said Masechaba Ndlovu.
Let’s explain: Battered woman syndrome emerged in the 1990s from several murder cases in England in which women had killed violent partners in response to what they claimed was cumulative abuse, rather than in response to a single provocative act. – Wikipedia.
