"Thank you, you’ve taught me how to be independent, not to depend on others so I may not be disappointed, to hold onto myself and God only. Take all your flowers while you are still."

Dr. Malinga left a lot of people heartbroken after he detailed how the taxman seized and auctioned his furniture in his presence. The Via Ollado hitmaker was indebted to SARS (South African Revenue Service) R2.1 million over his tax bill.

The singer told Sol Phenduka and MacG that after the Durban July in 2019, he paid R1 million of his R2.1 million debt. Attempts to pay the remaining amount were unsuccessful as he had no gigs coming in.

“In music, you depend on being called for your service,” he said, adding that he tried to reach out for help. 

“After two years, SARS came. I called Minister Nathi Mthethwa, we talked. I was calling people that I worked with, but they didn’t come to my rescue,” he said.

The muso said this was a dark period in his life and he had financial problems due to COVID-19 restrictions.

"SARS came. I called Minister Nathi Mthethwa, we talked. Sometimes when I am hungry don't advise that you have to plough, just dish out for me. I am not bath mouthing him, I am talking about what happened. I was calling people that I worked with, but they didn't come to my rescue," he said.

He continued: "They took everything. When you enter my house, if you don't have a heart, you will laugh. My house is empty," he said.

Dr. Malinga said he owes the taxman R500 000. "Auction is painful. I was there, I went there, and then I wanted to say 'please is not like I don't want to pay, I don't have money. I am not trending. I don't have songs. I am not being called at gigs and I can't force people to book me," he said.

Following the interview, fans came to his rescue and donated money towards his bill.
