Singer and songwriter Shekhina Donnell has allegedly been slapped with a R100 000 lawsuit for not pitching at a 2019 event.

According to Zimoja, a source close to the annual Rusty Rocks LoversFest organisers claimed that the Suited hitmaker did not honour her contractual agreement in 2019 and again in 2020 when she was given another chance to do so.

The source, who claims to work for the event organisers, claimed that Shekhinah was also asked to share a poster of the festival on her social media platforms, but she allegedly failed to do so.

“This is after she was paid R75 000 upfront for the booking. Now, she is stuck in this predicament. I’m sure, she spent the money a long time ago,” said the source.

R25 000 of the R100 000 is reportedly for the legal fees.

“She has not been cooperative at all. In two years, my boss asked her to come and perform at one of his events to avoid a refund, but she has failed to do so. When he asks for a refund, she becomes sour and rude, whereas she is the one in the wrong,” the source added.

The outlet claims to have seen a letter of demand stating that Shekinah settles the booking fees. The former Idols SA contestant was send the organiser’s banking details but allegedly still did not make payment.

Shekhinah’s booking agent, Nokwanda, failed to respond to questions sent to her when the article was publish.

On the other hand, Rusty Rocks organisers declined to comment, saying the matter is now in court.

“We do not involve media in our behind-the-scenes activities. This matter is now with the court, and we do not wish to comment further,” said one of the organisers.
