King Monada of Idibala fame has apologized to his wife’s friend, Maite, for undressing her with insults last week. Monada subjected Maite to a litany of insults, calling her a b_tch and lekgosha (wh0re), among others.
As if that was not enough, Monada even composed an EP of more profanities about Maite and her mother’s private parts. Speaking to Sunday World, the Oskabora Moreki hitmaker said he regretted his actions and extended an olive branch to Maite.
“I was angry and in a fit of anger, I hurled horrible insults at her. I apologise to her, my fans and South Africans for my conduct. I should have known better, I’m sorry,” he said.
King Monada, real name Khutso Kgatla, said he got hot under the collar when he discovered that Maite was encouraging Lerato (his wife) to leave him, claiming that the singer was abusive towards her.
“I saw a message from Maite encouraging my wife to use my fame to make money for her. She was recruiting her to join her stokvel and wanted to use my social media platforms to recruit as many people as possible so she can make a lot of money. “When my wife did not reply, she encouraged her to leave me and said I’m abusing her,” said King Monada.
The sheepish Monada said although he felt disrespected by Maite, he should not have insulted her. “In a country where gender-based violence (GBV) is rife, my actions were regrettable and I apologise,” he said.
Sunday World has seen Maite’s WhatsApp message sent to Lerato in which she is encouraging her to end the abusive relationship with the hitmaker and go back to school to build a brighter future for herself.
