NOT BUDGING: Robin Chivazve

After an all morning meeting between axed morning show presenter Robin Chivazve, through his company Ventura and Yarona FM, the fate of YAMAS will be decided by the Companies and Intellectual Property Authority (CIPA) today.

The Yarona Fm Awards Awards otherwise called the YAMAs were initially scheduled to be hosted tomorrow (Saturday) at the Gaborone International Convention Centre (GICC).

The awards however came under fire recently- which led to the dismissal of Chivazve who was the presenter of the youthful radio station’s morning show called The Feel Good Foundation- when it became apparent that they had contracted South African Bonang Matheba to co-host the show.

Queen B allegedly came at a hefty cost to Yarona FM, something which Chivazve also was against.

Robbie Rob has now approached CIPA to try and stop the event.

Speaking to The Voice Online yesterday the outspoken radio host said “All I want is what we agreed. This is my idea, my concept and they should give me what is due to me.”

The Voice Online has been reliably informed that during the meeting there was Yarona FM shareholders; Percy Raditladi, Dumi Lopang, Topiwa Chilume and their lawyers, whilst on the other end Robbie Rob was in the company of three of his legal representation and four CIPA representatives.

The ruling will be delivered by CIPA, something which if it does not go Robbie Rob’s way he says he will approach the high Court to try and “stop the awards.”

The case continues.
