Makhadzi is on a winning streak and we love that for her. From taking the song of the year title in 2020 to making enough money to build her mother a massive house, she is surely Queening and nobody is going to stop her from flourishing - or so we thought.

Record label and artist relationships are always bitter sweet, as we have seen in the past. Conflict arises when artists divert to something different, which record labels do not cater for most of the times. Makhadzi is apparently in that predicament, causing her to lose out on a major gig. 

The Matorokisi hitmaker was due to appear in a popular Etv soapie Rhythm City in the coming episodes. Shooting for this episode was supposed to happen this morning however the performer was a no-show, leaving the producers of the show to come up with an alternative at the last minute. 

Since Rhythm City has been canned, Mzansi was left star-struck by the news seeing how the show caters for local music and uplifts our talent. They do this by adding local songs as their soundtracks and also get the artists to perform at their popular club Kilowatt. Makhadzi was going to be part of the list of artists who would have performed at the soapie however she did not even pitch. She was also apparently paid a deposit but sources told Daily Sun that she is having a misunderstanding with her record label. Makhadzi is currently signed to Open Mic productions.

This would have been her second appearance at a Mzansi soapie. On the 31st of December 2020, the Murahu songstress gave a fiery performance on Muvhango. The performance was proudly organized by Muvhango's Vhutshilo and as per their invite, everyone could join in on the fun virtually.

Speaking to Daily Sun ahead of her performance, the Murahu hitmaker said she was excited to welcome in the New Year with the Muvhango family. She, like many others is anxious about the New Year, saying she hopes this year is a better one than 2020.

She also felt at home because she boasted about having friends on the show. Makhadzi even touched on the drama which ensued between her and her former manager Rita Dee, saying she has dusted herself off and will focus on her supporters.

"I know I’ve been making headlines this year because of the drama with my former manager, but I’ll dust myself off and focus on my music. I have fans who support my music," she told the publication.
