The only thing eNCA can do now to restore its credibility is to bring back Late Nite News with Loyiso Gola,” wrote Loyiso Gola.
Around September in 2015, the news channel announced that it will no longer be airing the news spoof show, but plans to do satirical news in a different format.
In a statement released then, eNCA revealed that it has been in negotiations with LNN’s production company for several months, but could not come to an agreement on a new format for the show.
Loyiso Gola once took to social media to say that: Late Nite News is over but political satire is still alive. Stay put for an awesome new project. – September 4, 2015.
Now, Loyiso Gola seems to be begging the channel by mocking its credibility that was lost to many due to the recent developments at the eNCA’s offices.
Following the recent marching orders that were given to eNCA Journalist Samkele ‘The Lord of The Media’ Maseko, DJ Fresh has come out to say Kethan Pillay was the reason he also jumped ship!
“His becoming hands-on at YFM was the reason I jumped ship, and why it was so easy to leave! He is not a nice person at all,” wrote DJ Fresh.
5FM radio DJ Thando Thabethe also took a jab at the channel saying that when she told YFM that she got an offer from 5FM she was told to leave immediately, including her gig on e.tv’s Club 808.
“Didn’t get to serve my notice at Y or even do one more show after letting them know I got offered a show on 5, got told to leave immediately. Further got told to leave Club 808 immediately,” wrote Thando Thabethe.
DJ Warras said he also said he told them he has an offer and Kathan Pillay told him not to bother coming back.
“Took my fingerprint off the system and sh!t ?♀️ no last show. No goodbye. Just bye,” wrote DJ Warras.
In 2013, 19 March, DJ Black Coffee also took to social media to express his dissatisfaction against YFM (then CEO), Kathan Pillay.
“Sir @YFM CEO Kathan Pillay I will NOT subject myself to any unethical bullying from you or anyone else about rights of our music,” Black Coffee wrote.
Kathan Pillay has since apologized to all that were offended by his irresponsible and ill-conceived statement on Twitter, posted Tuesday, 17 December 2019.
