This comes after Nkayi left Metro FM in 2017. In an interview with Gareth Cliff following her exit, she said it felt like the right time to leave the station along with Glen Lewis. She also stated there was no bad blood with her former employer.
“I pity them. There is a school of radio, and we love each other, and we are obsessed with radio, and it is all we talk about when we’re together,” she told Gareth Cliff.
“It’s knowing when to bow out graciously and gracefully; knowing when to be appreciative of the success. It was 10 years on Metro, six years on breakfast drive.
"They gave us two specific mandates when we joined the show: to double the figures, which is what we did, and to make our breakfast show the number one on Metro and the country,” she added.
