Makhadzi latest news
The latter has for the past few hours topped the headlines and been the topic of discussion in most social sites. This is so because of the allegations that she made regarding Rita Dee, her manager and the director of Rita Dee Entertainment for not paying her. According to Makhadzi, she had made more than R1 million from the shows and gigs that she had performed in during the festive season. Unfortunately, her manager had not made the payment to her and was ignoring her calls.
Through her social media accounts, she expressed her frustrations about the delayed payments stating that she had had to beg the manager to deposit the funds even when she wanted to purchase something. In one of her posts, she stated:
I wanted to buy something today [but] I waited, [I] promised the seller that I will pay in hours time because I knew my manager used to switch off her phone but she will soon get back to me,
Is the manager incompetent?
In another post, Makhadzi stated that she did not see the need to get a new manager. However, she went ahead to expose her manager's dirty linen claiming that she had an issue with taming her drinking habits, and that was the main reason why she could not reach her. Her post read:
'And after she get paid she [would] get drunk and switch off her phone, no update of what’s going on. I will call like I am crazy, imagine crying, hunting someone to give you your money. I must explain myself first…
Rita Dee I love you and I still need us to work but please change how you do things. Sometimes I become mad at you because of how you treat me. I will end up being depressed [because] you are damaging my mind instead of me being happy I must be stressed because of you'.
