Despite being sacked by SuperSport, sports broadcaster, Robert Marawa, is reaping the benefits of his latest project.
Marawa made headlines in May after he shocked sports fans across Mzansi by announcing he had been fired by SuperSport via a text message.
SuperSport later confirmed that it had ended its working relationship with the sports presenter.
There had been many rumours about what had happened, but both the sports channel and presenter had not divulged the reasons behind the termination of Marawa’s contract.
Last Thursday, Marawa announced the launch of his new sports channel called Marawa.tv, which aired on YouTube. In less than a week, the channel has already gathered more than 18 000 subscribers.
According to Marawa, the platform is an all-access, opinion-based, on-the-ground sports content channel for a global audience.
He also shared his thoughts on Bafana Bafana’s victory over host nation Egypt in the Africa Cup of Nations in Cairo on Saturday. The channel also featured an interview with retired Senegalise footballer, El Hadji Diouf.
A month ago, Briefly.co.za reported that Popular radio and TV sports presenter, Robert Marawa, had been given the boot by SuperSport, and it was rumoured that his dismissal had been contentious.
Robert Marawa, one of South Africa's most popular TV and radio sports presenters, has been shown the door by SuperSport. He took to social media to share the unfortunate news and added that he had been informed via a text message.
However, that is not all that Robert had to say. The presenter didn't come out and say it, but he hinted at there being more to the termination of his contract than meets the eye.
