Veteran actor Vusi Thanda has gotten more than he had asked for. He pleaded with Mzansi to help raise funds so he can pay his R45 000 debt. But now, Khokhova has decided to do more for him but he is not quite keen on it. 

Vusi Thanda has gotten help from multiple South Africans when he pleaded with them. He claimed to owe his landlord money. 

To many people's disbelief, he still rents a place to stay and not actually own one. So, Khokhova founder Sammy Mhaule decided to make his day by organizing and event to help raise money for a new home. 

Speaking to IOL he said, ”The idea to host this event came after myself and the team had seen the video of uBab Vusi Thanda pleading for help on social media. As a brand born out of the hardships of Covid-19, we know first-hand how hard the last few years have been, so helping out was a no-brainer."

He said they had the stock in the warehouse for some time now and they decided to use it for this event. 

"We’ve had the Khokhova stock in our warehouse for quite some time, and this is a way to put it to really good use and turn something that would have been otherwise negative into a silver lining,” Mhaule said told the publication. 

However, Vusi told Daily Sun that he knows nothing about this event.

"I can't comment on this because I'm not part of it. I was never informed about it. If they want to honor me, they would have contacted and informed me. 

"Their gesture would have been good and appreciated, but I'm offended because they informed the media without telling me."

Vusi Thanda recently spoke about how actor Shona Ferguson helped him financially. 

He told DJ Sbu on his podcast The Hustler’s Corner, “He respected me, he called me in different ways, papa, father together with his wife, ”  he told DJ Sbu. 

In 2020, Vusi said Shona used send him money for food. It started with a R5000 food voucher and then 12 000 monthly. 

“You know Sho sent his driver with a voucher of R5000 and said, tell him to guy buy food because Diabetes is a sickness that is related to food. Thereafter he called me and gave me R12 000 for three months every month end. I appreciate the company’s love."

Speaking of Khokhova, they are embroiled in a legal battle with Makhadzi. They told IOL that the journey to come to where they are right now was not easy. 

“The journey of entrepreneurship in South Africa can definitely be described as a bumpy ride, and it’s been no different with Kicks. Despite all the challenges and growing pains, we have not lost our drive and commitment to do what we do and do it well,” he said.
