After South African singer Mercy Pakela claimed Lance Stehr drugs his artists, singer Vusi Nova who is signed to Stehr’s label, took to Instagram to set the record straight on 20 July.


Bongani Fassie, son of iconic South African singer Brenda Fassie claimed that Muthaland Entertainment owner Lance Stehr gave him his first hit of cocaine on his reality show Finding Bongani Fassie which airs on Moja Love, DStv channel 157 on Saturdays.

In support of his statement, his mother’s friend, singer Mercy Pakela said that Stehr feeds the people he works with drugs so that they cannot think straight. 

“He is the drug master. He feeds the children drugs so that they don’t think straight,” said Mercy.

Lance Stehr also appeared on the episode and said if that is true then he would be supplying his other artists such as Vusi Nova with drugs as well.

“Which means I’m supplying drugs to Vusi Nova to Ntando to any of the creatives that I actually work with,” said Stehr.

Using the Instagram TV feature, Vusi Nova addressed the claims made against Stehr saying that he does not do drugs currently and such allegations are damaging to Stehr and the record label as a whole.

“For me, such allegations are very damaging, not only to Lance as an individual but to Muthaland as a company and us iartists zakhona because apparently we are being given drugs like we so stupid that we just allow this man to feed us drugs so that we aren’t able to think for ourselves,” said Nova.

He went on to say that when he was on drugs, Stehr was supportive. 

“I just wanna put it out there first, I do not do drugs, I used to at some point in my life but I spoke out about this and the reason I spoke out about it was because I wanted to help the next person who was struggling with drugs and by the way in that time of my life, Lance wasn’t a part of my life then so obviously when I started working with them I told them about my past issues with drugs and Lance was extremely supportive when it came to that,” he continued.
