Madula told the online publication that Makhadzi has been ignoring his calls so he had to take extreme measures by exposing her on social media.

"She stopped taking my calls, She also stopped responding to my messages. On 26 December I met her at Makhadzi Family Day at Giyani stadium. When I saw her, she promised to pay me after the show.

"The purpose of arranging this gig was to get my money back form her. I knew that she'd be paid R100 000. That gig was happening on 29 December, and I was actually hoping she'd pay me. So, after that gig I started communicating with her, But she ignored me," he revealed.

Rabbs said a friend organised a call between the three of them where he learnt that Makhadzi did not have any money and would pay him in instalments.

"She said she did not have money but promised to perform instead. She said I must organise another event, which is supposed to be on Sunday, 29 January. But again, she's ignoring me," he alleged.

In her defense, Makhadzi apparently sent a message to him promising to pay the money but in instalments of R2000 till she finishes off the R20 000 debt.

He claimed that he booked her on October 4 2022 he was only refunded with R40 000 after being promised the rest of the money a few days later.

Before that, Makhadzi  had to apologies to fans after being called out for not showing at the Northern Cape Heritage Festival to perform on September 24.
"Open Mic and Makhadzi would like to apologise to the Northern Cape Heritage Festival and all her fans in the Northern Cape for her failure to make it to the show this past Saturday (24 September 2022). 
"Makhadzi had a packed schedule this past weekend, a Jet was organized to ensure a smooth travel from all her shows, later in the day she encountered an aviation obstacle which made it impossible for Makhadzi and crew to land a private Jet in either Bloemfontein or Kimberly as both airports close operations much earlier than her anticipated arrival," the statement continues. 
"Several other efforts were made to transport Makhadzi and crew to this event, these efforts where however not successful taking into account the time of the day, Makhadzi's safety and that of her crew.Makhadzi apologises with no reservations to all her beautiful fans in the Northen Cape and the organizers of this precious events. Makhadzi was looking forward to this event and she promises to come to the Northen Cape very very soon," they concluded. 
The event organisers dragged her name according to Daily Sun, "We feel that we must address the fact that Makhadzi did not show up. She was paid in full for her live performance. When it became clear that she was booked elsewhere a jet was arranged to make traveling easy for her."
"We advised that Makhadzi issue an apology to our patrons for failing to show up. When this was not materializing, we eventually got hold of Molao from Open Mic and after a telephonic conversation, there was a consensus that Makhadzi just issue a video apology. "
