Kwaito legend Zola 7 (real name Bonginkosi Dlamini) and event organiser Queen Kay are not seeing eye to eye over a booking for the 16th of April.

The organiser alleges that she booked the Stars rapper for an event called Sophiatown at Rio Klerksdorp and made a R10 000 payment.

However, the musician claims to have not received the money.

Following her booking and payment, Queen Kay took to her Facebook to share a poster with Zola’s name on it. But on Wednesday 6 April, he denied knowing about the event on his social media accounts.

“I know nothing about this event… I was not paid but I see there’s already a poster in circulation. If you attend this event to see me, do not waste your time. Andizi #namanje,” he wrote in response.


However, the event organiser has a different version, as she says she made payment and she has proof.

She told Daily Sun that she’s been communicating with the Don’t Cry hitmaker on WhatsApp.

“Zola and I have been communicating since last year via WhatsApp. This year when he was reportedly going through a rough time, I visited him. So when I organised the event, I contacted him and agreed I’d pay R10 000 for his performance. After making payment, I shared the poster and that’s when the problem started,” she told the publication.

In addition, Queen Kay says that he told her his SIM card was stolen.

“He said his SIM card was stolen so someone else is using it. I asked myself how that was possible because he was still responding with the same number.”

The outlet reports that it has seen the proof of payment in question.
