Read the original convo below at the end of the article.
Seth Molapo, a businessman from South Africa, is not pleased with Makhadzi.
The singer was scheduled to perform for employees earlier this month, according to the Limpopo businessman from Steelpoort, but she failed to show up.
For her appearance at the Employees On Safety event, he claimed to have paid her management over R95 000, but he only received an R40 000 reimbursement.
“I made the payment on September 28 after I had reserved her for the occasion on October 4. After her one-woman show on October 1, she failed to appear, claiming to be sick, he said.
Seth claimed that he asked her supervisor at Open Mic Productions, Molau Rammala, for a refund.
“He just gave me back R40,000 and said he will pay the rest on Friday, October 7.
The payment would be made on Monday, October 10, he texted me later.
Weeks later, according to Seth, he was still waiting for his money. He was usually making up stories, but lately, he’s been avoiding my calls.
On October 18, according to Seth, he was able to contact Rammala, who promised to send the funds by 8 o’clock that day, but it never happened. He said that the absence damaged his reputation.
Calvin Ramotsebedi, an agent and promoter who collaborated with Seth on the event, according to Open Mic managing director Nkateko Maluleke, instructed them to only refund half the money.
Calvin remarked that because the event was a shambles, Seth should give the clients a refund. He allegedly failed to inform his patrons that the artist wouldn’t be able to attend the event until the day before.
Calvin claimed to have employed Seth on earlier occasions and to have known him for some time. “Because Makhadzi wasn’t feeling well, Open Mic wanted to bring another musician. He claimed that Seth ought to have informed his clients everything.
