The broadcaster has been at odds with Metro FM, one of the SABC's radio stations after they fired him for promoting his energy drink MoFaya at the Metro FM awards.

Since then, many assumed he was basking in independence after launching several projects, including the online radio station Massiv Music and the podcast The Hustlers Corner SA.

According to Savanna News, he also has a radio station project called Fired FM, where all radio broadcasters who were fired from their jobs, such as DJ Fresh, Tbo Touch, Robert Marawa, and Gareth Cliff, would start new shows. However, the project appears to have fallen short of expectations.

"He's broke, isn't he?"

@Sbu_Ntsepeng wrote:

"People were coming after me when I said DJ Sbu's so-called independence had been a spectacularly failed project . He should have never drank that Mofaya at the MetroFM awards. These are the consequences of assuming that you are above the brand you represent."

"Kanti Hustlers Corner is not serving? If Mofaya really belongs to him., there is no need for him to “Serve” at SABC. These celebrities like to behave like they own the brands they represent."
