“Today has been a very amazing day and a sad day with everyone at my work Place at Mediamax …Covid hit hard and everyone has to have their belts tight and unfortunately Mediamax has been hit too…I was not at work today because we had not agreed on a lot of things and terms and even as we speak my HR had me on hold still discussing terms of employment…Unfortunately we dint agree.
“So just like today I won’t be at work tomorrow or any other day…In short Last Friday was my last day at Milele FM and I want to thank everyone who supported me and every fan who was with that to the point we became the most popular and No 1 Radio Station in the country
