Cipha sounds has recently voiced his frustrations with the NY station during his Juan EP podcast with Peter Rosenberg.
“One boss told me one thing, another boss told me another thing, they then fired one of those bosses, another boss came in an told me one things, and then a boss of another station came in and became our boss and told me another thing. All nice people, all different opinions on what the show should be and how it should run.”
This is all related to Girl Code superstar Nessa Nitty replacing recently departed Hot97 icon, Angie Martinez. A lot of Hot97 DJs and Host anticipated news that they will receive her 3pm time slot.
Now, Cipha Sounds released a press release via instagram that confirms that his frustrations have panned out to be an official split with the station that he has been with for 17 years.
After 17 years, I’m leaving Hot 97. I¹m changing my relationship status from “it¹s complicated” to “single”. It¹s been an amazing ride – from intern to weekends to morning show host to fill Angie¹s seat in afternoons. Many years of incredible, life-changing experiences and enough amazing memories to last five lifetimes. The next move is already underway and I promise it’s going to be huge.
