DJ Squilla was suspended for ditching a Harare girl, actress Bridget Mutumba better known as Sonia in the TV soap Small House Saga. She has been thrown out of her family home in Houghton Park after she slept out with Power FM’s DJ Squilla last weekend.
The case attracted wide media publicity. Mugadza was dragged to the Harare Maintenance Court by his former girlfriend Vimbanashe Ngara who said she fathered her son in 1999.
Ngara is demanding US500 each month for the upkeep of the child. Mugadza said he was prepared to pay US$50 each month as he was earning US$282. He claimed he had three other kids to look after including his wife who is unemployed.
Ngara blew the cover on Mugadza and stunned the court saying that the radio personality was making more money as he also doubled as Dr Zobha.
He said he was raking thousands of dollars in private shows.
This is not the first time that Power FM have suspended the popular radio presenters.
Mugadza and DJ Squilla have been replaced by Leander Kandiero and Glenda Takachicha on their Wednesday and Friday Breakfast Show slots.
