Pearl Thusi gets her job back at SABC

TV/Radio personality Pearl Thusi has made her way back into the arms of SABC. This follows after she quit her gig as host of Live Amp to join MTV’s new show ‘Lip Sync Battle Africa’ as a host with naija superstar D’Banj.

The SABC and it’s Chief Operations Officer, Hlaudi Motsoeneng reached out in a statement:

In order for us to compete effectively, I have instructed management to ensure consistent application of the SABC’s directive regarding On-Air talent working for direct competitors.
To this end and with due regard to the circumstances relating to the termination of Ms. Pearl Thusi’s contract with the SABC, the corporation resolved to reinstate Ms. Thusi’s services as an On-Air Personality. In this particular instance the directive was not applied consistently and appropriate action will be considered.

So you can soon expect to see Pearl on your screens or back on radio again. Her show on MTV ‘Lip Sync Battle Africa’ will premiere in April. | Credit: | Pearl Thusi gets her job back at SABC
