Unathi Nkayi claims she's been silenced, Kaya 959 claps back

Briefly News reported that Unathi Nkayi has 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 has finally revealed why she has been keeping to herself.

Unathi hopped onto her Instagram to disclose that she received a letter from her former employers at Kaya 959 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.

TimesLIVE reports that Kaya959 has shut down Unathi's claims of being silenced. The radio station prides itself in allowing freedom of speech and therefore deny taking hat right away from Nkayi. The station was aware of the contract that prohibits Unathi from sharing confidential information but she can say whatever she likes.
