It has been two weeks since Linda Sibiya (Mr Magic) was fired from Ukhozi FM. Although some listeners have come to terms with his departure, others are finding it hard to accept it. They still hope that he will come back in the near future.

According to how things currently stand, his return could still be a possibility.The Creative Workers Union of South Africa (CWUSA) is yet to discuss Mr Magic’s dismissal with the management of the SABC.

The CWUSA believes that Mr Magic was dismissed unfairly. It has come to our attention that CWUSA and the SABC will meet on the 24th this month to talk about Mr Magic’s unfair dismissal.

We have heard that if the talks are not fruitful, CWUSA will hand this matter over to the CCMA. Therefore, as Mr Magic likes to say, it is not over yet.

The reasons behind Mr Magic’s axing have not yet been confirmed by the SABC or Ukhozi FM. It is believed that he was fired because of allegations of fraud and corruption. There are also rumours that there were internal battles within the station. Apparently Mr Magic was hard to manage and was a control freak, which resulted in the management getting rid of him.

Mr Magic’s show, Vuka Mzansi Breakfast Show, is now hosted by Dj Sgqemeza. It has also been rumoured that Alex Mthiyane, who used to host the show in the early 2000s, might return to Ukhozi FM. Whether there are any chances of Mr Magic returning to Ukhozi FM is unknown. We will have to wait and see.
