CoolFM 's Dotun Suspended For Hitting Female Co-worker
The energetic and eccentric OAP is said to have handed out the slap on an intern for ‘being rude.’
According to the NET, inside sources say the management, after listening to both parties and witnesses, were forced to hand out the suspension to the OAP. Dotun was apparently aggravated by the intern, Tobi, and reacted by slapping her.
Some sources inside the organisation however claim that Tobi deserved it: ‘I’m sorry Dotun got suspended but we at the office are all happy he slapped her’, another OAP working at the station stated anonymously.
‘She was spoilt and rude and was causing too much wahala at the station, she had it coming!’.
We’re told Tobi joined the station and was assigned to work with another OAP, Mannie on the ‘Good Morning Nigeria Show’ as one of his three co-hosts, but after a while, she was reportedly transferred to the production room because she wasn’t getting on well with the other presenters. ‘They had to take her off air and transfer her where she would be less of a disturbance’, sources said.
Tobi has since completed her NSYC year and left the station, while Dotun has now returned to his job.
‘It happened some months back. I have made up with her and we’ve both moved on‘, Dotun who participated in the October edition of ‘Walk against Violence’ explains.
Dotun, who has been working at Cool FM since 2004, currently anchors the ‘Midday Oasis Show’ alongside singer-presenter Temilola ‘Taymi’ Balogun. He also doubles as an MC at various shows, helping out at the weekly talent showcase Industry Nite once in a while.
The 28-year-old occasionally serves as a hypeman, working with rappers Ice Prince and Vector.
