Skomota broke his silence in a video shared on X by MDN News. The star noted that he was cancelling his bookings and would only go back to work when his family had an agreement with Moruti Wa Dikota. The post read:

"Skomota has cancelled all his bookings until further notice. They say they are requesting Moruti Wa Dikota to appear before a meeting with them, along with Skomota's family to resolve the issues regarding his money."

Briefly News spoke to Certified Relationship Therapy Educator and founder of Engaged Humans, Paula Quinsee who noted the importance of prioritising mental health at work. She said people should prioritise themselves and take necessary steps that help them in difficult situations. She said:

"Mental health has an impact on your long-term well-being – prioritising your mental health contributes to sustained job performance and overall life satisfaction. Maintaining your mental health enables you to have better relationships with colleagues and family.

Fans weigh in on Skomota's decision

Social media users felt like Skomota shouldn't have cancelled his bookings. Others noted that the people around him were ruining his career.

@RealXavier011 said:

"His management made him focus on girls so that they could eat his money nicely "

@Ori_RSA commented:

"The demise of the mighty."

@TheGBrown1 wrote:

"Someone from his family must ensure he is paid what is due to him."

@BraStoveDieMahn added:

"Probably those girls Skomota was kissing was he's payment. Indirect payment from Moruti Wa Dikota to Skomota."

@Facelessmee1 noted:

"He will evaporate and will never hear from him again…Surely if he wants to contest against his manager he could just hire another one while he resolves his issues. Cause will soon forget of his existence."
