Cape Town - Prominent local DJ and business man Tbo Touch has dismissed Touch HD liquidation reports published by local news tabloid Sunday World and its sister outlets.
The news outlet published an article over the weekend in which they claimed that the popular digital radio station had reached the end of its lifespan after allegedly failing to settle its hospitality bill of almost R190 000.
Taking to his Twitter account to respond on the capacity of his company Thabo Molefe – better known – as Tbo Touch, shared a post of the company’s official press release in which he tagged the publications.
"Touch HD has noted the reports from the Sunday tabloids and its sister publications claiming that the company is under liquidation, we wish to dismiss the allegations made with the contempt that it deserves," the company wrote in the public press release.
In addition, Tbo highlighted: “Touch HD continues to thrive and promises to deliver epic content to our audience and will maintain quality service to our clients.”
Then wittingly ending the statement saying, "Don’t believe the Hype…We got this…"
Although the media personality issued the post to set the record straight and clarify the allegedly false reports, some tweeps are still rather skeptical about Tbo’s statement with one user asking if the "thriving" company was going to settle the, "190K catering bill you ran at the 2017 Durban July?"
One user also pointed out that the matter was not about liquidation but rather about, "failing to pay service providers money due to them."
