Award winning artist, Makhadzi, is accused of not pitching at an event she was booked for on the 24th of December last year. The Mpumalanga event organiser is now demanding his money from the star after failing to honour two gigs.

We had to explain to the people that had bought tickets that we were going to reimburse them. That is a loss for us, a huge loss,” he said. It is alleged that Makhadzi is no longer taking his calls and her manager Maphuthi Perez has since blocked his calls. “We have proof that we booked her, and she even posted on her socials that she was going to be part of the event, but she never came,” said a work associate of Thonsi, who wished not to be named.

ZiMoja is in possession of the slips that show that money was paid into an account belonging to Makhadzi Entertainment, a company she opened after she leaving Open Mic. ZiMoja is also in possession of the WhatsApp conversations between Maphuthi and Thonsi, where she promised to refund them on Tuesday. ZiMoja understands that Makhadzi paid back R50 000 through her manager but had failed to settle the full amount. The organisers claim that both Maphuthi and Makhadzi have blocked the organisers.
