According to TimesLive, Nyiko said that although Maphorisa was the stepping stone that Mlindo The Vocalist needed to break into the SA showbiz industry, their relationship got sour when Phori wanted Mlindo to change to Amapiano.
"Then Phori said if you guys are not gonna do amapiano than do your own thing, you can manage him. Already there, I was the manager. I don't know why he was not aware," he said.
Following these new developments, SA Twitter demanded that Phori release a statement or be cancelled.
One Twitter user @ChrisExcel102 wrote:
"If Maphorisa doesn't release a statement telling his side of a story. I'll scratch his name on my book of legends. These allegations are very disgusting. Most SA artists died broke because of greedy people who were exploiting their God-given talents."
