Metro FM calls T-bo Touch to order

Metro FM has distanced itself from T-bo Touch's decision not to play AKA and Cassper Nyovest's music on his show. The Touchdown 326 host announced on his show on Wednesday that he stopped playing the feuding artists' music because SABC cannot condone such violent behaviour. Touch's statement came after Cassper claimed that one of AKA's friends pulled a gun on him on Friday.

Touch told the Sowetan that he wanted to send a strong message. "We have a crises in SA where violence is a problem," he said. But the radio DJ had to backtrack the statement he made on air.

Metro FM communications manager Happy Ngidi said the station has an obligation to play music of local artists, and while they don't condone the clash, Metro FM would not get involved in industry conflict. "We distance ourselves from the utterances he made," she said.

Touch was reportedly summoned to a meeting with the station's management to explain himself. He told the paper that the matter was resolved and both artists' music would be played on the show.
