No doubt, she has fast become one of the most booked artists in South Africa and has headlined several international events. She has made a fortune from her work and is not shy to show for it.

In the backdrop of her tax woes, her previous management has been implicated in the mix. Open Mic has been blamed for the defaulted payments since she was signed under them.

Her former manager, Rita Dee, has been allegedly accused of failing to help her with filing her taxes. The source told the media: “When she joined Open Mic, she was already owing and the debt accumulated.”

The source revealed that her properties have since been embroiled in the taxes, but she can not afford to lose them. “She cannot afford to have those taken away from her. So, she will fix it,” added the source.

Makhadzi owns several properties dotted around Limpopo and Johannesburg. A few months ago, she hogged headlines after buying a lush house in Fourways.
