Dj Maphorisa, Kabza De Small Face Arrest In Zimbabwe

A warrant of arrest has been issued for the arrest of South African musicians Dj Maphorisa and Kabza De Small.

The warrant was issued by the Bulawayo High Court in Zimbabwe. This comes after the duo failed to perform at the Victoria Falls Carnival a few months back.

DJ Maphorisa, Kabza De Small, and Sha Sha were supposed to kick off their carnival performances with a one-hour-long act.

They did not honor this invitation and then refused to reimburse the organizers for any costs incurred as a result.

The Zimbabwean high court warrant of arrest read:

“You are required and directed that you take Petrus Kabelo Motha and Themba Sunnyboy Sekowe of which they are found in Zimbabwe and delivered to the Keeper of the Gaol at Bulawayo Prison, together with a copy of this writ, there to be safely kept until they are served with the summons against them issued by the High Court in Bulawayo for a claim in the sum of US$18,395.82, or have provided with security in the sum of US$18,395.82 to the Sheriff of the High Court in Bulawayo.” In May, the organisers of the Victoria Falls Carnival slapped Sha Sha, DJ Maphorisa and Kabza De Small with a half a million rand lawsuit for failure to show up at the carnival.


Sasha finally issues apology

Over 4 months passed now since ShaSha, along with fellow Amapiano giants Kabza de Small and DJ Maphorisa, did not show up for this year’s Vic Falls Carnival on the 30th of April. ShaSha has finally issued an apology for their absence.

After the trio failed to appear for their scheduled performance, the organizers of the carnival sent out a furious letter of demand demanding that the musicians pay back a half a million rand in booking costs.

In addition to this, the event organizers requested that the performers “most significantly, apologize to the fans who traveled all over the world to see them play.”

The recipient of a BET award, ShaSha, finally made the decision to issue an apology on Monday morning.

“Hello to everyone of my friends and admirers who were able to make it out to the Victoria Falls Carnival this year. “Please accept my sincere apologies, not only to you but also to the festival, for my absence at this year’s iteration,” ShaSha wrote in her note.

“There have been a lot of adjustments made to my environment over the course of the previous few months. Many of you have probably also noticed my absence from social media in recent days.

It is essential that I discuss this with each and every one of you right now. I’ve reached a point in my life where certain things are coming to a close while others are just getting off to a fantastic start.

In the midst of everything that was going on, I was unable to live up to my vow to take part in the carnival.

“I am aware that this has created a great deal of frustration for you, but I am pleading with you to have faith in me so that I can set things right.

Together with my team, we are putting in a lot of effort to come up with a new plan, and the organizers of the event have been really kind and encouraging throughout this process.

“In the coming weeks, I really hope that we will be able to announce our plans, along with some other exciting news. I can’t wait to put on a show for each and every one of you,” Shasha continued.

“I didn’t always realize I could sing,” says Sha Sha, a singer, of her meteoric climb to popularity.

She had always intended to pursue a career in the medical field and had no intention of ever being successful in the music industry. However, fate had other plans for her.
