Even with all these major moves happening for them, these two are said to be owing the South African Reserve Bank (SARS) a whooping 9 Million Rands and this is because they are not filling their taxes, talk about a plot twist.

The twins are currently in Los Angeles, taking Amapiano all the way to the world, literally.

According to an article by Sunday World, SARS has received default judgements against the DJs at a Joburg High Court..."The popular House music pair consisting of twin brothers Bandile and Banele Mbere...has been slapped with just under 9 million tax bill".

In documents that Sunday World has seen, the DJs owed SARS over R1.3 million in unpaid company income tax. "The amount skyrocketed to R3.1 million after R900 000 interest was added to the debt"

The twins are also said to have owed SARS over R2.2 million in value added tax and 1.3 million additional tax. The quantum increased to over 4.8 million when over 1.1 million interests and R56 000 were added. "Major league also owed SARS a total of R279 000 in unpaid pay as you earn tax but the sum went up to a total of over R740 000...they also owed SARS a total R373 000 in unpaid unemployment insurance fund and a total of 680 000 in skills development levy"

The DJs have a reality show with MTV Base that is showcasing what they do on a daily basis.

Speaking to IOL, Monde Twala, senior vice president and general manager of ViacomCBS Networks Africa said, MTV Base is the youth culture home to African music stars and we are excited to showcase Major League DJz’s journey of iconic sounds...This exclusive behind the scenes look will be a fan favourite with our audiences as they share in the duos’ incredible lives"

“The show will inspire and entertain viewers while affirming the MTV Base commitment to empowering local talent on the continent’s number 1 youth and music channel.”

Controversial MTV star Uncle Vinny is also making an appearance in the 8-part series that is produced by MTV Base and Soul Candi Studios.

The twins released their highly anticipated EP titled Whats the Levol.

The EP was released with a music video for their smash hit Dinaledi featuring Botswana-born singer Mpho Sebina. Dinaledi is taken off their 31-track album Pianochella. The music video directed by Khaya Bhengu reflects another level of creativity and visual excellence from the popular twins.

The duo recently paid respects to Amapiano saying the genre is fast growing so big brands should start putting money into it. 

“Amapiano is doing crazy numbers across all platforms … iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, YouTube…the works. I wonder when brands will start putting money into this genre/ culture.. the sound is out of this world and it’s about to be the biggest sound to come out of Africa"
