Simphiwe Dana has slammed Arthur Mafokate following recent reports claiming that the 999 boss' affiliated companies received over R10 million from the National Arts Council (NAC).
The songstress took to social media on Wednesday, 24 March to share her thoughts on recent media reports that Arthur's artist Chomee received over R2 million from the NAC.
The star expressed that Arthur's snap should have been in the Daily Sun article that reported that he received over R10 million. The publication used Chomee's pic. Simphiwe shared the screenshot of the article and captioned it:
"More drama at the National Arts Council. Arthur Mafokate affiliated companies received over R10m from NAC. His picture as the mastermind should be here, not Chomee’s."
The singer came back a few minutes later and added "allegedly" to her initial post. Simphiwe's fans took to her comment section to share their views on her post.
"Arthur is a member of the ANC campaign committee, he is always at the forefront of all elections and I guess that's how he's been defrauding or stealing the money from that department, let's audit all those companies you'll see more shocking truth."
"Sadly nothing will happen to him (Arthur), maybe the ANC is repaying him for campaigning for them. He is milking these government entities brazenly with impunity."
"So true he is the culprit and this tabloid is being biased by not putting his picture as he's the main leader of this money eating saga."
"She also ate R2M."
"Didn't Chomee have something to do with the R2m mentioned there?"
"Arthur has always been a crook. Has he released any song in the past few years?"
In related news, Briefly.co.za reported that Chicco Twala has slammed Arthur Mafokate after he applied for the National Arts Council grant meant for struggling artists.
Chicco felt that rich people like Arthur do not deserve the relief funds aimed at helping struggling Mzansi people amid the pandemic. Chicco penned a lengthy open letter to Arthur slamming him for applying for these funds. Chicco said the 999 boss' action diminishes the chances of other Mzansi artists who are really struggling to access them.
Briefly.co.za also reported that Chomee has denied that she received an over R2 million cheque from the National Arts Council (NAC). The musician allegedly bought herself a luxurious whip after she received the fat cheque from NAC.
The stunner took to social media and told her fans that a report by a local publication claiming her company, Divatainment, was recently paid R2 million by the Arts and Culture Department is all a big fat lie.
Chomee told her fans on Instagram that she bought the luxurious whip about six years ago.
