Msizi Nkosi Biography – Msizi Nkosi Wiki
Msizi Nkosi (born Msizi Edgar Nkosi) was a South African author, television and radio producer. He worked on popular shows 3Talk with Noeleen, Khumbul’ekhaya, Take5, and Zola7. He also worked as a producer at Ukhozi FM on their Nethezeka NoKhozi show until he was fired in October 2016 for allegedly focusing on promoting his book rather than fulfilling his duties at the station.
SABC’s spokesperson Kaizer Kganyago at the station revealed at the time: “He was careless and thought his book was more important than his job. We confirm that Msizi Nkosi is no longer at Ukhozi FM. He is a freelancer and as such when the terms of the contract have not kept the contract is terminated by the station. It was not a mutual decision. I cannot comment on the details surrounding the termination because it is a contractual issue between the two parties.”
He was the author of the bestselling book “I’m a different mess than I was yesterday”. The novel focuses on his humble beginnings in KwaZulu-Natal to his fast-paced lifestyle in Johannesburg’s entertainment world. The novel details the star navigating troubled waters from a young age. The first chapter opens with Nkosi lying in a coma in the ICU of a hospital and then traces back to the series of events that led him there.
