After a series of speculations from fans it has finally come to book that famous NTV presenter Douglas Lwanga is no longer part of the Serena-based TV station.
According to sources, Douglas who was on a suspension could not hold it anymore and just chose to hand in his resignation on Tuesday 6th February 2018. In other words he fired himself!
Apparently, Douglas was meant to meet the station’s disciplinary committee on grounds of misconduct. Inside sources reveal that he was failing to co-ordinate his show right from the artistes he was hosting t the music he was playing.
Among some reasons for which he was to meet the disciplinary committee are the following:
Apparently Douglas and his team were extracting money from several upcoming artistes to feature them on the show as well as play their music and he money was not reaching the station’s accounts.
He was also playing visually uncensored music on the show, bleaching the minimum broadcast standards. The variety of music on the show was not the one that was intended by the station. Apparently Cheza.com show on Spark Tv was meant to do typical local music as NTV The Beat was meant to do Urban, a thing that was not happening.
For all the reasons concerning the music the station told Douglas that they were to bring a music selector to always choose and select the kind of music that was to feature on the show, a move he strongly opposed.
He was among others being advised to separate the famous “Purple Party” from the NTV brand.
Those are some of the things he was to think about prior to the disciplinary committee meeting that he never waited for as he resigned earlier.
He is currently heading to God Father House as a senior producer.
Douglas joined media from record Tv where he worked as a camera operator later becoming a presenter of famous Katogo show. It was from here that he joined NTV The beat that he has run for five years!
He was replaced with TNation presenter Crysto Panda who is currently faced with a challenge of fitting into Douglas’ shoes amidst the several insults from several fans who go to as far as his inbox!
