- Dineo Ranaka reportedly owes an East London promoter R18 000 for missing a gig that she was booked for
- The radio personality skipped the event in order to attend Somizi's star-studded wedding ceremony
- Her team is refusing to pay the full amount, citing that they did not have to cover transport and accommodation
Dineo Ranaka has been ordered to #PayBackTheMoney. The DJ owes R18 000 for ditching a gig and going to Somizi and Mohale's wedding instead.
Ranaka was booked to attend an event in East London on the same day as Somizi's wedding, Sunday World reports.
The publication is in possession of a letter from the promoter of the event, Ziwele, who paid Dineo a total of R18 000.
The promoter is now demanding that the money be returned or else the starlet will face legal action. It is alleged that Dineo backed out of the event last minute, promising to pay back the money - but she still has not.
Dineo's manager disputes the amount of money the DJ has to pay back. Speaking to Sunday World, the manager said:
“The problem is the promoter demanded that we reimburse him for the booking fee (R12 000) which was discounted and is not our standard out-of-town booking fee. He demanded we pay flights, accommodation and advertisement costs, as well as the event cost, to which we totally disagreed.”
The Ranaka camp refuses to pay for travel and accommodation.
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously reported that First National Bank (FNB) confirmed that it made a mistake which saw some clients reporting extra money in their bank accounts. Reportedly, an error resulted in bank balances showing incorrect amounts. In some cases, clients saw an extra R3 600 in their accounts. But FNB wanted all the money back.
