Unathi Nkayi Claims She's Been Silenced, Kaya 959 Claps Back
Briefly News previously reported that Unathi Nkayi had been minding her business as she trended across the country for being fired from Kaya 959. While the radio station and Sizwe Dhlomo told their sides of the story, peeps wondered why the singer was quiet.
Unathi finally revealed why she had been keeping to herself. She hopped onto her Instagram to disclose that she received a letter from her former employers informing her that she is not permitted to speak about the matter on any of her public platforms.
The musician explained that the only reason she withheld from sharing her side of the story was that she contractually bounded not to. The radio station prides itself in allowing freedom of speech and therefore denied taking that right away from Nkayi.
The station said it was aware of the contract that prohibited Unathi from sharing confidential information but affirmed she could say whatever she likes. The Kaya959 spokesperson said:
"However, Ms Nkayi is free to share the details of the issue that arose between her and Kaya 959 should she feel the urge to, provided what she shares reflects the true version of events."
