Wazobia FM’s popular On-Air-Personality Matse Uwatse, simply known as Matse, has left the rave radio station. The multiple award winning Warri born radio presenter confirmed through her verified twitter handle, @Matse1 that her time at the radio house is over.
“Pips! I’m no longer with 95.1 Wazobia FM. I want to thank U for the unconditional love U’ve shown me. I really appreciate U’all. God bless,” she tweeted early morning today, September 17, 2011.
A close source to the presenter reveals that the Pidgin English speaking presenter is moving to a new job where she is expected to present news in fluent English. The source also confirms that she gave her old employer a month notice.
Speaking to YNaija, Matse confirmed the move but refused to tell if the rumour that her destination, 93.9 Nigeria Info, is a sister radio station to Wazobia FM. While making it clear that her decision to move on is simply based on a personal career growth for her, she also revealed that quitting the Pidgin English radio station was a tough decision to make.
“When I think about my listeners and fans, I feel bad and drawn back but at the same time this is a development phase in my career. I believe anybody that loves Matse will understand that life is dynamic and will be happy for me,” she said.
