Mampintsha’s controversial life is at the center of attention again. This time around the musician is embroiled in a nasty financial drama with an event organizer.

According to Daily Sun the Gqom musician allegedly ducked with R20,000 of Gesh Lounge and Entertainment owner Bhekani Ndlovu's money. Mampintsha was billed to entertain his legion of fans at the Weekend Shutdown on 29 December but apparently the muso was nowhere to be found.

“Mampintsha told me he was booked for another gig here in Empangeni and didn’t mind coming to Gesh Lounge afterwards. He demanded that I pay R20 000 before the event,” he told Daily Sun.

Mampintsha was allegedly paid R10 000 upfront on 20 December and demanded the organizers to make a poster with his face on it, for promotional purposes which happened.

The organizer said “A day before the event he demanded that I pay the remaining balance, otherwise he wouldn’t come. On the same day, 28 December, I paid another R10 000.”  Ndlovu said both payments were made to Tshomza Construction, an FNB account.

But eyebrows raised on the day of the event when he received a call from a man called Phila, who claimed he was Mampintsha’s colleague. Phila said Mampintsha went MIA after performing at a gig in Stanger.

Ndlovu said “I waited for him but he never came. When people realized Mampintsha was not coming, they started attacking me. They felt I had misled them.”

The organizer said he was forced to stand at the gate and refund people their money. He had to pay R100 to everyone who attended the gig and his success to find Mampintsha drew a blank. Mampintsha advised the club owner to exercise patience with him, promising thatwill pay him back but to date, he has not. 

“I’m angry because he disappeared with my money. This is theft and I can see they’re avoiding me. If they continue like this I’ll be forced to escalate the matter,” he said.

Mampintsha and Phila could not be reached on their phones when contacted by Daily Sun and he did not respond to WhatsApp or text messages.
