DJ Sbu is still making headlines.

This time, the DJ has reportedly decided to temoparily stop the prodction of his energy drink Mofaya. This comes after it was revealed that the energy drink had a fake South African Bureau of Standards (SABS) approval logo.

According to Times Live, Sbu said production would be put on hold until the necessary changes are made to fully comply with the SABS' requirements.   

It was also recently revealed that the SABS is considering suing the DJ and entrepreneur. Frank Makamo from the SABS told EWN: “It is being handled by the legal department and my legal team has met with the company in question."

Sbu told the news site that they're negotiating with the SABS to get all the necessary processes right and added: "We want to have a relationship with the SABS so that in future we don’t repeat the same mistakes."

The former Metro FM presenter told Times Live that the company which manufactures Mofaya was SABS approved and "this automatically filtered down to his product".

He explained: "We are currently in communication co-orperating with the authorities behind the scenes working very hard to rectify the current error. The SABS and NRCS are there to make sure companies adhere to their strict standards of protecting the South African public at large."
