- Lindo "Dogg Dbn" Buthelezi has ended his working relationship with his client, Mampintsha Shimora
- The manager believes that his job was done and claimed he only helped out of the goodness of his heart
- Buthelezi remains good friends with Mampintsha but wants to focus more on his other businesses
Mampintsha’s manager, Lindo “Dogg Dbn” Buthelezi has decided to drop the gqom star after spending several months of intense work trying to “reform” his image.
According to TshisaLive, Lindo confirmed that he had called it quits with Mampintsha for “personal reasons”.
Mampintsha and Buthelezi have been friends for a long time and the manager said he had represented him out of the goodness of his heart.
“We remain good friends. I have played my part in his career and I was doing it out of the goodness of my heart. I’m extremely happy that he is fully back on track, gigging and financially stable again.”
Instead Buthelezi said he had his hands full with his event, ‘Wine Wednesdays’ and will also focus on his other businesses, ‘Taxi Live Africa’ and ‘GeeGo Live’, which is more events and entertainment related.
Buthelezi was credited for turning Mampintsha’s image around after a video of the star allegedly hitting Babes Wodumo went viral earlier this year. This led to assault charges being opened by both parties against each other.
Fortunately the charges have since been withdrawn after the couple attended mediation sessions through Families South Africa (FAMSA).
Buthelezi had spun the controversy and managed to convince a Canadian DJ to withdraw his boycott of Mampintsha’s music and debut one of singles, thus saving Mampintsha’s music career.
Mampintsha’s former manager also helped conceptualise the pair’s Bonnie and Clyde national tour, which people have described as the “worst PR spin-off” ever. Could this have led to Buthelezi calling it quits? Hmm?
Meanwhile, just over a week ago, Briefly.co.za reported that Mampintsha Shimora had spoken out in support of his gqom singer and dancer girlfriend, Babes Wodumo, after she was dragged on social media for allegedly mocking Lady Zamar for her acne.
The video shows a woman poking fun at singer, Lady Zamar’sacne during her appearance on the reality TV music competition, Idols SA.
Social media users automatically linked Babes to the video but she denied it was her, claiming her Twitter account was hacked.
