Finally, TBo Touch has opened up about the real reasons why he left the SABC.

So it turns out the resignation does not necessarily have to do with him refusing to read a Hyundai advert, which subsequently lost the SABC R15-million in advertising.

Although reports claimed Touch, real name Thabo Molefe, admitted to refusing to read the advert, he claims the real reason for his resignation was that SABC failed to dismiss the misinformation about his suspension, Times Live reported.

He reportedly said the real issue was due to a physical confrontation with one of the show’s producers in May.

“It was about principle. If I did not believe in myself I would not have resigned as the host of the No1 radio show nationwide, generating  the most revenue and listenership. My lowest numbers averaged over 1.1 million listeners,” he told the publication.

And following his resignation, it seems things are just getting better for the man.

On Saturday, he hosted SuperSport show A La Carte ahead of the Euro 2016 final match with Maps Maponyane, and rumour has it that he will be opening his own record label and entertainment company soon. 

There is really no stopping Tbo Touch!
