A Limpopo-based businessman is allegedly asking for his money back from singer Makhadzi and her record label Open Mic Productions.

Daily Sun reports that Seth Molapo is not impressed with the Ghanama hitmaker for not showing up to his work event on 4 October despite being booked for over R95 000.

“I booked her for the event on 4 October and made the payment on 28 September. She didn’t show up, saying she was sick after her one woman show on 1 October,” he said.

The businessman, who claimed that he booked Makhadzi for his Employees On Safety event, said he has only been refunded R40 000 and was promised the remainder by Friday 7 October. He claimed that he was in contact with Makhadzi’s boss, Molau Rammala.

“He then texted me saying they’d make the payment on Monday, 10 October,” Molapo said.

He added that he has still not recieved his money, saying Rammala is ignoring his calls.


In response, Open Mic’s managing director Nkateko Maluleke said Calvin Ramotsebedi, an agent and promoter who worked on the event with Molapo, told them only to return half the money.

“A day before the event, he didn’t tell his clients the singer wouldn’t be able to make it,” he said.

According to Maluleke, Ramotsebedi said Molapo should refund the clients he organised the event for as it was a mess.

“Open Mic wanted to bring another artist because Makhadzi wasn’t well. Seth [Molapo] should have told his clients everything,” he said.


This is not the first or second time that Makhadzi and Open Mic are embroiled in bookings scandal.

As per SowetanLIVE, the much-loved musician was booked in December 2021 and Open Mic was paid R70 000 for the booking but failed to pitch.

The publication reported that in May Paledi Events Management, through its legal representative Mxolisi Kabinde, slapped Makhadzi and the record label with the letter of demand as she had not performed at the all-white-themed party held at Malapile Park in Rathoke.

Again in May, Miga Events took to Facebook to blast the MaGear singer and her team for failing to entertain the crowd during an Easter Sunday family picnic on 17 April in Ramatlabama, North West. The organisers also allegedly heard “rumours” that the singer “normally doesn’t pitch for gigs” and was also asking for a R70 000 refund.
