Through a tweet, Kasumba revealed that he has come to a conclusion to revisit his interests in pursuing a PhD in Theology.

He also noted that he has “secured the necessary funding from a reputable University” and hence will be halting his work on air.

After a deep conversation with my family here and in a diaspora I have decided to reignite my interests in a Theology PhD having secured the necessary funding from a reputable University. It therefore means that my work on air comes to a holt. It is a painful decision.

Kasumba’s tweet has garnered divergent reactions with some of his followers calling it one of those April Fool’s Day stunts.

Others have, however, congratulated him upon a job well done and wished him the very best in his next endeavours.

We await to see what comes of it!
