Gagasi FM Media Statement: Spectacula & DJ Naves
Written by Uno on 1 August, 2019
01 August 2019: Gagasi FM confirms receipt of a proposed termination of contract, with the station, from Sphectacula and DJ Naves, with effect from the 2nd August 2019. The duo, who co-host The Kings Drive between 15h00 and 1800 weekdays,
joined the station in 2017 on a three-year contract that was going to end in May 2020.
Gagasi FM have engaged with the Presenters about the premature termination of their contracts, their departure from the station and the legal implications of their contractual obligations to Gagasi FM.
Gagasi FM has noted that this is the second occasion in less than 6 months that and SABC Station has targeted Gagasi FM’s primetime talent in the middle of their contracts and in a hastily manner. Nevertheless, Gagasi FM has consistently displayed its ability to groom and to identify talent, and actions by SABC radio stations over the past few months seem to affirm this.
The station is in the process of finalising its line-up in response to the sudden departure of Sphe and Naves. In the meantime, DJ Sonic will join Clarissa to host the Afternoon Drive as a stand-in. Njinga will stand-in for Sonic on his evening slot on weekdays between 22h00 and 01h00.
All other shows will continue as per the normal time channels and an announcement will be made about the future of the afternoon drive show in due course.
