Culoe De Song was reportedly loaned an advanced R117 603.14 by the commercial entity plus interest at the rate of 9.75%.

As per the agreement between the two parties, the musician was due to pay equal monthly instalments until all of the outstanding balance and interest was paid in full.

“The interest rate would increase or decrease as the prime rate of interest increases… the full balance outstanding would be payable on demand at the instance of the plaintiff,” the court papers read.

As a result of the artist allegedly failing to respond to the letter of demand sent to him, the bank has terminated the loan agreement.

According to court papers, the bank wants the court to grant a default judgement should Culoe De Song fail to oppose the application. If the judgement is granted, the musician could have his assets seized.

“The defendant would be responsible and liable to pay the costs, fees and charges applicable to the account, as well as default administration charges and collection costs if the defendant defaults on any obligation in terms of the agreement,” the papers further stated.

In 2021, the DJ took to Twitter to post an image of himself wearing tribal clothing and dancing as a way to announce to his dance that he had accepted his ancestral calling.

Speaking to TshisaLIVE, Culoe De Song said that he would give himself time to learn and absorb everything that he is being taught in his journey.

“My gift with music is a part of the journey of connecting with my ancestors … considering that music is a part of my calling … So everything about the journey I am on and music, comes under one bag of gifts. The gift of healing,” he was quoted as saying

He continued: “I’ve had people come to me saying that my music healed them from suicide and things like that … and at the time I was just operating from a talent point of view. I did not know that there was anything special in me … I did not look at music as a form of healing.”
