“Good morning lovely people it was an honour gracing your screen…Thank you @switchtvke for the platform. To my fans I love you guys and will be gracing the screens soon bigger and better… Tuzidi,” wrote Jackie.

Sacked?

According to a statement released by Switch TV on Monday, January 6, 2019, the organization said it would be making staffing changes in accordance to its 2020 strategy growth that will unfortunately see a number of talents relieved of their duties.

Which begs the question; could it be that Jackie was among those individuals laid off?

"We will be reviewing the existing programming; cancelling and launching new shows; which may affect some of the existing talent," read part of the email.
