Kapusa, popularly known as Mr Splash, dragged MBC to court seeking damages for unfair dismissal or unfair termination of employment contract, severance allowance and reinstatement.

The former TV presenter was then awarded K12.9 million in January 2022 by Hussein which comprised K11.8 million compensation for his unfair dismissal and about K1.1 million severance allowance.
