Mampintsha's manager, Dogg DBN, has spoken out about how the call to boycott Mampintsha's music is hurting his client.
According to TshisaLIVE, the newly-appointed manager said that it was unfair for Mampintsha's music to be banned as he has not been found guilty of assault by a court of law. He added that other international stars such as Chris Brown have not been banned from radio.

Mampintsha is apparently hurt by the boycott but is not allowed to address the media about it.
Dogg wrote a statement on his Instagram account explaining that DJs need to remember that they don't own radio stations and therefore have no right to just ban artists.
He added that while he doesn't condone women abuse or gender-based violence in any way, he didn't want people to treat Mampintsha like a criminal.
He said that, "A lot of people will suffer: producers, songwriters, instrumentalists, backup vocalists, etc. so we should find a better way to punish him."
Briefly.co.za previously reported that Mampintsha was charged with assault after attacking Babes Wodumo. He was released on R2 000 bail and is due in court next month.
