Cape Town – South African media personality Unathi Nkayi has opened up about her “vigorous and painful” year, as she worked on overcoming the mental health challenges she faced after she “lost everything”.
The former Idols SA judge parted ways with Kaya 959 radio station in November last year following a dispute with Sizwe Dhlomo.
She was also dealt another blow when she was axed from the Idols SA judging panel for season 18 after being on the show for the past 10 seasons.
Unathi took to her Instagram on Tuesday to reflect on her healing journey and how therapy and exercise helped her.

“I have been through the most vigorous and painful year of therapy of my life because I lost everything due to a one-sided story that many were too keen to believe.” she wrote.
“In May my therapist wanted to put me on meds. Anxiety pills and tranquillisers because I had hit rock bottom. We decided against the meds but that meant I had to force myself to get into a routine which included exercise. To show up for myself.
“My father said; ‘Be regular with your therapy and then sit back and watch them turn against each other. They will because there is no integrity among the three people who conspired against you in this matter,” she said.
