Twitter demands 'crook' manager pay Makhadzi her money
Believe it or not, even in 2020, artists are still getting exploited and abused by their management companies. But it seems enough is enough as musicians are starting to speak up against the unfair treatment.
Fans of Makhadzi Muimbi started rallying behind the young musician following her social media outcry about her manager refusing to pay her.
In a lengthy statement posted on her Facebook page, the "Matorokisi" hitmaker detailed the ongoing struggle she endures every time her management needs to pay her.
She wrote: “They say Facebook doesn't solve problems but sometimes can heal our hearts...now am in pain and I have no one to talk to. I am just crying alone cz (because) they switch off they phones they dont wana update me y am not receiving my money . I must just wait for them when they feel like giving me my money.
She added, pleading with her manager Rita Dee Nephawe to pay her as the continuous ill-treatment would lead her to depression.
She explained: “Rita dee I love you and I still need us to work but please change how you do things. Sometimes I become mad at you because of how you treat me. I will end being depressed cz you are damaging my mind instead of me being happy I must be stressed because of you."
Fans of the “Riya Venda” star took to their different social media platforms, to condemn this act of exploitation to happening to their fave.
Many even requested for legal intervention.
Spoke to Makhadzi.— Tumi Sole (@tumisole) January 7, 2020

Makhadzi only gets R4500 per month? Whoa this is horrific. Matorokisi was arguably the biggest song in the country. I'm horrified. I know some artists who charge R30k for a 30 min gig. pic.twitter.com/78sJKNWhY4
