South African musician and media personality, Sbusiso “DJ Sbu” Leope, has expressed his interest in working at the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) again, but only under acceptable conditions. Sbu was dismissed from SABC’s Metro FM in 2015, following his promotion of his MoFaya energy drink at the Metro FM Awards. This led to his eventual departure after a public outcry.

Sbu’s Financial Situation Raises Concerns

Despite Sbu’s entrepreneurial spirit, a recent video has sparked concerns among his fans about his financial situation. In the video, the musician said, “financially or commercially it has to make sense because ultimately I have to put food on the table for my family and I am a businessman at the end of the day,” suggesting that his finances may not be as stable as his public persona suggests.

Some have speculated that Sbu’s financial troubles may be related to his previous business ventures. He has had mixed success with his MoFaya energy drink, with some controversies surrounding the product’s marketing and distribution. Nonetheless, Sbu remains optimistic about his future prospects, as evidenced by his desire to return to the SABC.

Mixed Reactions to Sbu’s Intentions

While some have praised Sbu’s willingness to work hard to provide for his family, others have criticized him for his past actions. One Twitter user commented, “These are the consequences of assuming that you are above the brand you represent,” in reference to Sbu’s energy drink promotion that led to his firing.

Regardless of the criticisms, Sbu’s determination to succeed remains steadfast. He has been vocal about his desire to return to the SABC, and has even hinted at potential collaborations with other media personalities. Perhaps with the right conditions and support, Sbu can once again become a prominent figure in South Africa.
