Kabza De Small, Maphorisa and Sha Sha to pay R500k after a no-show at Vic Falls Carnival gig

Kabza De Small, Sha Sha, and DJ Maphorisa have been asked to pay R500k for not showing up after being booked for Vic Falls Carnival.

According to Sunday World, the trio was demanded to pay the aforementioned money by Zimbabwean impresarios after a no-show from the trio last month at the Vic Falls gig, despite being paid R250 000 for appearance.

Music promoter Bongani Ngwenya’s lawyer, Rudolph Baloyi, of RB Inc said in a letter which reads, “It is common cause that all the booking, travel, accommodation and tax fees were paid by our client well in advance. Despite the fact that all confirmations were done well in advance the artists did not attend and/or perform as booked; and there has been no explanation whatsoever for the artists’ failure to attend and/or perform, not even a mere apology.”

The Ngwenya’s company Bandwagon suffered a loss of more than R414 000, which includes R250 000 in performance fees, which include R20 000 agent fees, over R91 000 for return flights, R22 500 for immigration work permits for three artists, R15 000 for Zimbabwean income tax, R9 000 for the Consensus Board, and R11 250 accommodation for Kabza and Maphorisa, and R14 400 for Sasha and crew.

“Total expenses [were] R414 147,” reads the letter.

In response to the demand,  Thuli Keupilwa of  Lawk Communication who represents the trio states that they will refund only only refund them R230 000.
