Umlando Hitmaker Toss In Trouble For Failing To Perform At A Gig Due To Loadshedding

Umlando hitmaker Toss is in trouble after he failed to perform at a gig due to loadshedding, although he had been paid a deposit.

Toss, real name Pholoso Masombuka, was billed to perform at the Ditos Bar and Braai in Port Alfred in the Eastern Cape on 22 December.

The event organiser Skhulu Mqolo told ZiMoja that he paid Toss’s manager Slindile Mpatho 50% of the fee, which was R12 500.

“I did everything by the book. Toss charged us R25 000 for his performance, and his management asked me to pay a 50% deposit before he could come, and the balance was to be paid after the performance.”

That night, Toss was supposed to perform in East London, and they decided to rope him in for a show. Mqolo added that they also paid R9 500 for Toss’ travel and accommodation expenses.

Toss was supposed to perform on 16 December but failed because he missed his flight from Dubai. Mqolo then rescheduled the show to 22 December, to which the Manca hitmaker agreed.

On the day of the event, Toss arrived at the venue only to find that the area was hit by loadshedding. The singer and dancer refused to perform using a generator and demanded that Mqolo pay him the rest of the money.

“We had paid him the 50% deposit, and our agreement was that we will pay the performance after he performed. Besides all that, we offered to pay him with cash, but he refused. We paid from a different bank account, and when the money didn’t reflect at the same time, he left and promised to come back after performing at the gig in East London. We never saw him again.”

Mqolo is seething and feels cheated, as they paid R22 000 only for Toss not to perform.

The event organiser added that Toss’ manager Slindile Mpatho had blocked him everywhere and not paid back the money.

Toss’ manager Mpatho responded to enquiries from ZiMoja:

“Toss was at the venue even though the contract states that full payment is due two days before the event. They were already in breach of contract, yet Toss went to the venue. We then agreed that we would not perform until full payment was made, which they failed to do. Did they send you the contract? It states that the deposit is non-refundable. Especially because they are the ones who failed to settle the fee we agreed on.”
