- Nota Baloyi has called out DJ Shimza for using his position to bag state projects
- Nota believes that Shimza’s alleged relationship with a government official has resulted in him benefitting with tenders
- Many Mzansi social media users agreed with Nota and shared their thoughts
Nota has called out DJ Shimza after his venue landed him yet another cushy government gig. The music executive echoed the sentiments of many in Mzansi, who wondered why Shimza was landing so many tenders.
Nota accused Shimza of dating President Ramaphosa’s communications officer, Athi Geleba and using her to bag these contracts.
“Shimza has been benefitting from political connections for years. He called me a moerskont but I don’t moerskont on taxpayer’s money. Khusela Diko was fired for allowing her husband to win PPE tenders and he later died of COVID19 complications. Athi’s boy toy will cost her.”
Shimza responded to the accusations by saying:
“Fix your heart brother, you are a very toxic human being.”
However, social media users wanted answers.
“How did the Hang Awt get the tender from Department of Tourism to host the cookout show? Was the tender advertised? Did you pitch? People need to know because it's taxpayers money.”
“Rumors are that u've been benefiting from your friend Mzwandile. Please don't sue me, I don't have R500K. Anyway I'm talking about Mzwandile, not the other one.”
“Iba ne nhloni Shimza, you were handing out to the needy under a pandemic while accepting funds of fruitless expenditures from the state.”
“I used to think Shimza is a businessman but he is just another tenderprenuer...Y’all just get business contracts and funding from government while acting like smart business people...Mxm you are a politician bruh.”
Meanwhile Briefly News previously reported that Nota Baloyi's wife, soul singer Berita has said that she will not tolerate being dragged online for her husband's opinions. Taking to Twitter, Berita spoke about the amount of bullying she's faced on Twitter and she will not allow it anymore. She said:
"There are some people on this app that think they can come for me just because my husband has a public persona. You are crossing the line now. Please keep my name out of it."
She said that she only wishes love and light for everyone on her end and she doesn't have time for nonsense. The singer is not impressed with Mzansi social media users trying to drag her into her husband's mess.
Check out the reactions from social media users to Berita's tweet below:
"The way I’m into people for their music, I didn’t even know that you were married. Tow that line baby girl, protect your peace."
"So sorry do hear that love. Don't let haters get to you Ms B. I think what you just did was a mistake because these people are just keyboard warriors seeking attention."
"It is not cool when people fail to differentiate between private life and public life."
