- DJ Tira and NaakMusiQ have been accused of breaching government’s lockdown rules
- The two musos both own houses at the Willowbrook Estate in Ruimsig, Johannesburg
- Tira’s neighbour, Benjamin O’Neil, reportedly opened a case with police against them for allegedly breaching government’s lockdown regulations
DJ Tira and singer NaakMusiQ have been accused of breaching Mzansi’s coronavirus lockdown regulations.
Tira’s neighbour, Benjamin O’Neil, has reportedly opened a case with police against the Thank You Mr DJ hitmaker for allegedly contravening government’s lockdown rules.
The case was opened at Honeydew police station on Friday.
NaakMusiQ, whose real name is Anga Makubalo, is also reportedly being probed for the same offence.
The two musos, who are also neighbours, have collaborated on many successful music projects. They both own houses at Willowbrook Estate in Joburg, where home prices reach multiple millions.
The same neighbour who opened this case, Benjamin O'Neil, got into a physical altercation with DJ Tira's wife that resulted in a police investigation in November last year.
The Sowetan has confirmed that Tira and NaakmusiQ's properties are among five at Willowbrook Estate in Ruimsig that are under police investigation for contravening lockdown regulations.
"These five houses are all friends with one another [sic] and under normal circumstances I don't care, but they are moving in between houses and visiting one another during the period of lockdown.
"One minute you see them at Khathi's and the next at NaakMusiQ's house. It's back and forth all the time. As far as I know, about three or four men reside in NaakMusiQ's house. But you will see a woman popping up and they continue to bring female friends.
"How is that possible during the lockdown? Why are there females at Willowbrook that don't live here?”
O’Neil also accused Tira’s son, Junior, of taunting him.
Tira complained that O'Neil has been targeting his family for some time now.
"We never got along and we are even looking into signing a petition because we just want to live in peace. He has been monitoring us, but honestly we just go to the store for essentials. I can't help that he sees things that are not there.”
NaakMusiQ, who is also an actor, said he has stuck to government’s lockdown guidelines and is also adhering to the strict security measures as set out by the estate body corporate.
Police spokesperson Brigadier Vish Naidoo confirmed that no arrests have been made yet.
"Investigations are continuing and the details of this case cannot be divulged at this stage.”
