Cape Town - SABC spokesperson Vuyo Mthembu has confirmed that DJ Fresh, real name Thato Sikwane, has been "unscheduled on Metro FM until further notice."

Vuyo declined to comment on details surrounding the suspension, saying:  "The matter is between the organisation and DJ Fresh, and we are not in a position to comment further."

IOL reported that the radio DJ was suspended after using offensive language on air. 

eNCA suggested that the suspension was due to a "scuffle he reportedly had with his co-host Relebogile Mabotja."
