- Shimza is not about people bringing their own alcohol into events
- Sharing his opinion, Shimza raised a lot of eyebrows and even got called “arrogant”
- Straightening things out, Shimza made it clear that he was not pointing fingers at the general public but merely sticking up for event organisers
DJ Shimza received some shade after he expressed his feelings against people being allowed to bring cooler boxes of beverages into events.
Not only does it raise safety concerns when people are allowed to being whatever they please into an event, Shimza feels that it results in a major loss on the event organiser's part as well.
Briefly.co.za learnt that Shimza’s “no cooler box” policy comment got the backs of many up. With entrance to events as expensive as it is, now people must pay triple the price for drinks too?!
Taking to social media with a post that has since been deleted, Shimza called on event organisers to either ban cooler boxes altogether or to attach a 'corkage' fee to them.
While some events have already adopted the cooler box fee idea, Shimza feels they are not charging enough. A mere R100 for a cooler that’s holding R500 plus worth of alcohol just does not seem logical to Shimza.
Many did not take lightly to Shimza’s post and felt that he was being rather “arrogant”. Imagine paying R500-plus for entrance and still having to pay R500 on top of that to bring alcohol that you have already paid for in, kante!
Shimza later took to social media with a clip in which he explained himself and fired back at those shading him for his post.
Straightening things out, Shimza explained that he was not attacking the people attending events with cooler boxes but simply outlining that the bottle stores are profiting off events rather than the event organisers themselves.
He also addressed those who felt the need to call him “arrogant”. Shame, Shimza was having none of it, baba!
