- Thando Thabethe recently tweeted reasons why she resigned from 5FM
- She walked away from the SABC radio station last month after being with them for 11 years
- Some of Mzansi's biggest celebs have taken to social media to support the star
Mzansi celebs have been using social media to send their love to Thando Thabethe ever since she spilled the tea on why she quit 5FM.
Thabooty walked away from the SABC radio station last month after working there for the past 11 years.
She alleges that the 5FM station manager, JD Mostert, and programme manager, Siyanda Fikelepi, reneged on her contract renewal after she asked for a raise of only R200 an hour.
The star then complained to SABC management and, after some back and forth wrangling, was offered a Sunday 4am to 7am slot.
She "found this an insult" and then decided to resign. She has blasted the station's management in a scathing social media thread.
Local celebs have been showing support to Thando, who is also an actress, from the day she posted the thread on social media.
Briefly.co.za takes a look at five stars who have showed their support to Thando.
Radio veteran DJ Fresh - who once worked for 5FM - commented:
"I tweeted that this will probably happen, the day after you 'resigned'. Sad that the daytime lineup is more all male, than it was even 15 years ago!!!"
Radio presenter Khutso Theledi wrote:
"Women like you don't happen often. Never forget how rare you are Thando."
Actress and artists advocate Rami Chuene wrote:
"You're a 'never say die' I believe in you."
Actress and presenter Thembisa Mdoda-Nxumalo wrote:
"You’re a force. God will never let you do any of it alone, get ready for an incredible new season."
TV presenter Minnie Dlamini-Jones also commended Thando for speaking up.
"I am so proud of the woman you are!!! To speak up about the injustices of this industry is so difficult and the reality is we've all been there! You are not alone and God is about to show off with you."
