Award-winning singer and performer Makhadzi has been embroiled in yet another scandal and this time, event organisers were trying to take her fans for a ride.

Following the success of her one-woman show on Saturday, 1 October, posters were already being put up, promoting a ‘fake event’ that had the performer on the poster.

 Makhadzi’s production company, Open Mic spoke to Daily Sun and cleared the confusion.

“There was no after-party and no one approached us about it. We had to issue the warning because there’s bad reports about Makhadzi not pitching to events, so we wanted to warn people that Makhadzi was not part of this after-party.

Open Mic said they do not appreciate that her picture was used without consent.

“They wanted to mislead the public and we were obliged to warn people”
