Award-winning produce and musician DJ Maphorisa is reportedly in hot water after pulling a no-show in Botswana last year.
Phori was allegedly paid R100 000 in October last year to perform at an event in Botswana. According to MmegiOnline, the DJ did not pitch.
The event’s promoter Exotic Sebina told the publication that Phori’s management did not give him a valid reason as to why Phori failed to perform as agreed.
“At the time his management told us ‘he just doesn’t want to come but we learned that he also had an event the same night at Konka in SA. Up to now they have not refunded me nor given me a new date of a makeup performance. I have since opened a criminal case against him to be arrested upon entering Botswana,” Sebina told the publication.
The publication also reported that the Central Police Station Crime Investigation Department in Botswana has confirmed that the charges have been laid against Izolo’s hitmaker. It is also stated that Sebina revealed that Phori will be served with a P1 million (over R1.3 million) summons for event damages.
Meanwhile, Maphorisa has been under fire recently following his Facebook rant. A few days ago he took to the Communication App claiming that he has been backstabbed by his former artist Mlindo The Vocalist. Mlindo was signed under Phori’s Blaq Boy Music Label.
In his lengthy Facebook post, Phori said he tried to help Mlindo and found a road manager for him but he later found out that they have decided to cut him off.
