According to ZiMoja, Nova was paid R170K up front for him to come and perform at the cherry harvest in Ficksburg from 25 to 26 November 2023, which he didn't pitch for.

Responding to the claims that he owes people, the star who recently modelled for L'Oreal at the SA Fashion Week said that he only missed his performance because he was involved in a car accident while driving from the Eastern Cape to Free State.

He said:

"I had an accident while driving from the Eastern Cape to the Free State. It wasn't major, but we had to wait for the police, causing a delay. We couldn't make it on time, and my life was on the line. I offered to return for the next show, humbly apologised, and I refunded the full payment. I made sure to compensate them."

Vusi also mentioned that the event organisers should demand their money from the promoter who charged them extra money:

"The promoter, who added their fee on top of what I was charging is the one owing the organisers. I paid back what I received; she needs to pay them."
