Social media is once again up in arms after YouTuber Rea Gopane made some serious allegations against Amapiano star Mr. JazziQ. On his podcast Everything SA Music, he said, "The entire entertainment industry looked passed the fact that JazziQ sacrificed Killer Kau and Mpura...for the betterment of his career."

Rea Gopane strikes again...this time the YouTuber took aim at JazziQ and questioned his friendship with Mpura and Killer Kau. Rea made that bold yet defamatory statement on his podcast with his team, and they too were shook.

The reason he gives for saying such is because JazziQ featured them on a music video for Woza, but they were not part of the song. He even said the video was released shortly after the fateful accident happened on their way to Rustenburg.

Rea reckons that's when his career shot up the roof and improved. He even pointed out that JazziQ never attended both their funerals because he was touring globally.

"The day after they died, he went to Ghana..." said Rea then his co-host Blvck Steph, who by the way almost jumped from his seat when Rea made that bold statement, added, "so you think the ritual was done there."

Read then continued and said, "I'm just saying, we re not reading between the lines...the sacrifice is right there and everybody missed it." He even made even more allegations and said the Amapiano genre is in fact a secret society. Talk about having a wet mouth!

Social media is in a frenzy after the episode premiered on YouTube yesterday and they are backtracking with their sympathetic words after they defended Rea when Bonang demanded R500 000 from him.

Rea went on his podcast and accused Bonang of introducing AKA to drugs which apparently lead him to introducing them to Anele Tembe, which resulted in her demise. Of course this wild accusation saw him getting slapped with a lawsuit and he dragged Scoop Makhathini with him. He said these wild statements were told to him by Scoop Makhathini.

"Scoop told us that AKA is on coke, and Bonang is the one that got him into cocaine. Scoop told us that, bro, after the interview we had him right here at this place," Rea had said to his co host.

Bonang served him with the letters on social media after he refused to give her his email address. "On Sunday 9 May 2021 you falsely and unlawfully accused Bonang Matheba in a widely published video clip of, inter alia, having introduced AKA (Kieman Jarryd Forbes) to cocaine. In the context of what was being discussed in the video clip this defamatory allegation was exacerbated by the shocking insinuation that the death of AKA's girlfriend Anele (Nellie) Tembe was due to AKA's alleged use of cocaine.

"The allegations were defamatory, hurtful and were deliberately intended to humiliate my client and undermine her reputation. The allegations are also, to your knowledge false. Your false utterances are compounded by the fact that at the time of making them on a public platform, you knew full well that these utterances would be widely viewed given my client's high public profile."

"To this end I am instructed to demand from you, payment of the sum of R500,000 within 10 days. Should this sum not be paid within the time prescribed, I have instructions to issue summons without further notice to you."

Rea apologised on all social media platforms and issued a half written apology to Bonang. "To the extent that I have made statements to certain individuals and in the public media stating or implying Ms Matheba's connection to cocaine, I unequivocally retract all such imputations and unreservedly apologise that they were made. I regret any inconvenience caused to Ms Matheba and undertake that it will not happen again."
