In a statement released on Saturday, 17 June, South African DJ and music producer Mobi Dixon—real name Mabi Ntuli took to his popular Instagram account with 107k followers and shared that he had been assaulted and racially harassed by a guest house owner in Bloemfontein.


According to his statement, after performing at a gig in Bloemfontein on 21 May, out of the blue, an un-named middle-aged white woman began demanding that Mobi Dixon and his team leave the premises. Not only was she said to have accessed one of Mobi Dixon’s team’s room without notifying them, but, she was said to have randomly walked out of the room and began throwing racial insinuations and verbally harassed them.

At some point, she was said to have managed to grab Mobi Dixon’s wallet and in her attempt to kick all of them out of the premises, she was said to have resulted in physically assaulting the BHUTIZA hitmaker. A Protection order was said to have been issued against her and a case of common assault was also said to have been opened.

“Further legal action will be pursued as the woman has subsequently gone on public platforms defaming the artist’s persona with unfounded statements in a character assassination attempt,” read the statement.
