Sanyu FM’s PR blunder of sacking star presenters is just getting worse and worse.
It seems like a lifetime ago… But once upon a time (10 years now), Ugandan airwaves had a king and a queen and their regal names James Onen aka Fat Boy and Seanice who threw in the towel recently.
My grandfather once asked me if Fat Boy was still alive. I said yes but now I can almost whisper “but he set for an axe from Sanyu FM if information reaching Red Pepper gossip desk is to go by.”
Sources at the Crane Chambers based radio station tell us that top management, including owner Sudhir Ruparelia, are not happy with his facebook rants.
While they understand that it could all have been a joke, they believe there are things not to be joked with as they compromise the company brand. As a result we are told a meeting has been held to discuss Fat Boy’s future according to Xclusive UG.
“Sanyu FM management understands that Fat Boy is their star presenter but they believe he is replaceable. He is certainly not bigger than the company.”
Earlier this week, Fat Boy blamed his childless life to his workplace Sanyu FM. The popular childless radio star posted on facebook his current job at the Crane Chambers based radio station is behind everything.
He even went on to name some of the presenters at the station have not had children because of their work on the breakfast show “Fatboy, Seanice, and Melanie. Crystal and Big Ben, who used to host Sanyu Breakfast, only got kids after being assigned to other shows!” he explained.
But after the social media backlash from fans, Fat Boy might want to consider the context next time if he survives atleast.
