DJ and producer Bongani “Morda” Mohosana (previously known as Murdah Bongz) has reportedly returned the studio equipment he was accused of stealing from Spirit Motion — the record label that Black Motion is signed to.

In December, Sunday World revealed that Morda was accused — by his former record label boss, Moses Nkia Mokgoko — of breaking into the group’s Centurion house on 15 December.

A source alleged to the publication that Morda stole studio monitors, a television set, computer hard drives and mixing desk from the house which the Black Motion use as an office and studio. The recording studio equipment is estimated at a value of R243 312,30.

Speaking to Drum, an insider said the equipment has been returned and Black Motion members Thabo “Smol” Mabogwane and new member Kabelo “Problem Child” Koma are working on new music.

This comes after Spirit Motion revealed it won it’s court case against the Mohigan Sun hitmaker at the Gauteng High Court earlier this month.

“He was supposed to return it, so it was bound to return. It is not like they are excited or over the moon, it didn’t belong to him in the first place. He didn’t bring the equipment himself, he sent someone to return it, but he kept the keyboard which they will demand to be returned as well.

“All they want is for him to apologise, there is no animosity whatsoever, they want to know what the reason behind all of this was,” said the insider.

According to Morda’s legal representative, Neo Mashele, the equipment belongs to Spirit Motion which both Morda and Thabo Smol proportionately owned.

“Bongani went to the property, took the property [equipment], went, and used it, and they, for a reason unknown to us, went to court and made it seem as though our client stole the property.

“Our client didn’t steal the property and that is why the case is deregistered, it never came to fruition because there was no base for a criminal charge of the property. He used it and returned it. Remember, he is a part owner of the property.

“And regarding the sit-down discussion, the directors are Thabo and Bongani, so we as Bongani’s representatives as well as Thabo’s representatives will be having a round table discussion to discuss the future of Spirit Motion as a company,” Mashele said.
