The paper also reports that Tbo Touch did not confirm nor deny the news when they contacted him. He referred them to the SABC, and the SABC's group executive for corporate affairs and marketing Gugu Ntuli told the publication that the new line-up will be announced soon.

A few publications report that Touch rejoins Metro for R480k per month. This would be more than a hundred percent increase from his salary from six years ago which was rumoured to be around R200k.

During an interview with Mac G in 2021, Tbo Touch spoke about where his distinct accent comes from.

Explaining to Sol and Mac G he said it started back in high school where he was teased on how he sounded.

"Do you know how difficult it is when you are in high school and all your friends are like 'what are you saying?' All of your friends in high school and I'm not talking about university, high school. And then they would ask each other, 'what did he just say?

"There's this exhaustion that comes with time to say these guys don't hear me...I'm going to try my best for them to hear me. Unfortunately, it became slightly permanent."

Soweto TV Drama

In 2021 Sunday World reported that Tbo Touch was fired as CEO of Soweto TV after serving in that position since 2019.

It was said that he was removed from Soweto TV for allegedly underpaying employees with a colleague, according to Sunday World.

The publication revealed that Tbo Touch was removed by chairperson Tuis Jabulani Nkutha, who was also in trouble with the station for unfairly dismissing the seasoned media personality from his CEO and non-executive director duties at the television station.

According to Nkutha, Touch and Zulu underpaid employees in a bid to save the station from going bankrupt.

Also, it was reported that Nkutha's appointment as chairman was allegedly illegal.

It was said that should he not step down, the channel's legal adviser had threatened to have him arrested. “In view of the above, you are hereby requested to immediately furnish the four directors and the writer hereof with lawfully executed board resolutions regarding the purported removal or resignation of Mr Malongete and Mr Molefe as directors of Soweto TV,” read a letter as quoted by the publication.
