THEY were the perfect couple! But now it looks as if a professional “divorce” is looming for The Avenue Metro FM breakfast show co-presenters.
DJ Glen Lewis and Unathi Msengana might no longer work together when the new line-up is announced. This because the two don’t see eye-to-eye.
A senior staff member at the station told Sunday Sun that they might be separated. The highly-placed source said Glen is not happy to work with Unathi.
“He feels Unathi patronises him,” the source told Sunday Sun.
Our source also claims that the legendary DJ had lodged a complaint in the past but was told his contract bound him to work with Unathi.
This allegedly happened after Glen officially requested to be removed from the breakfast team in 2012.
Apparently, he was told that his contract ends this year.
The source added: “Glen is not someone who has issues with people. He is a peaceful guy who minds his own business.”
A producer at Metro FM said things are tense in the studio.
“The sad part is that Unathi won’t have The Avenue show to herself. If Glen is out, it means she’ll have to go somewhere else,” said the producer.
According to the producer, Glen has no problem with Unathi as an individual – because he regards her as a lovely person.
“But Glen feels Unathi antagonises everyone. He feels that she is rude to the listeners.
“And even the marketing team feels that Unathi is too much,” added the producer who wished to remain anonymous.
Sunday Sun tried to speak to the two DJs but was told both of them were in rehearsals and their phones were off. The Sun Team was referred to Metro FM’s spokeswoman Happy Ngidi.
Ngidi said: “As far as I know, there are no issues. They both come a very long way as a team.” – Sunday Sun
