THE DETAILS| Here Is Why Makhadzi’s One Woman Show Might Not Happen

South African artist Makhadzi’s much-awaited One Woman Show hangs in the balance as a promoter threatens legal action to force the songbird to perform at his event on the same date.

Makhadzi’s show has been scheduled for this Saturday at Makhuvha Stadium in Venda.

Sunday World reports that the promoter Thato Mashabela has threatened to get a court order at the high court in Polokwane compelling Makhadzi to perform at his event at Boeketlong Lodge and Pub in Polokwane.

In a letter of demand, Mashabela’s lawyers said the promoter booked Makhadzi to perform at his event after he signed an agreement with her record label Open Mic on May 12.

In compliance with that agreement, Mashabela reportedly paid Open Mic R40 000 deposit and R2 000 to shoot a promotional video for the event.

The lawyers said it was later discovered that the Matorokisi hitmaker was also scheduled to perform at her show titled Makhadzi One Woman Show to be held on 1 October 2022.

“We are further instructed that on or about August 2022, when our client saw a post on social media that Makhadzi will be performing at an event entitled Makhadzi One Woman Show, also to be held on 1 October 2022, it was already clear and evident to our client that Open Mic would breach the agreement.”

Mashabela’s event manager reportedly made several attempts to reach out to Open Mic enquiring about Makhadzi’s “double booking” and he was informed that the songbird had withdrawn from their event.

According to the letter, Makhadzi was in breach of the contract and she was asked to fix the mess within two days after she was threatened with the said high court order.

“Should you fail to remedy the breach as demanded, kindly note that our instructions [are] to urgently report yourselves to the regulatory authorities and to proceed with an urgent application in the high court to compel you to honour the aforesaid contract with punitive legal costs. Our client’s rights are reserved,” reads the letter.

Mashabela confirmed that he is in dispute with Makhadzi over her withdrawal from his event.
