Amapiano producer DJ Maphorisa has been accused of being a scammer by a record label owner by the name of Letty Mncube.

According to the Daily Sun, Phori apparently promised Letty some PR work for two upcoming artists, but never delivered. Speaking to the publication, Letty said that Phori initially asked for R48 000 for the PR work.

This would involve recording the artists, getting gigs and promoting their work on social media. Letty went on to say that she could not afford the amount and asked to rather pay in installments. She claims that Phori took R1500.
