In what was supposed to be a drama-free flight to Cape Town for one of their gigs turned out to be a rather unpleasant trip for Black Motion’s Smol & DJ Murder.

The duo recently opened up about how they were ill-treated on the airline just because of the color of their skin.

Smol detailed what had occurred between them and the staff of their airline in an Instagram post.

ZAlebs spoke to Black Motion’s manager Tshiamo Kodisang who confirmed that the group will be lodging a complaint against the airline as the duo also missed out on a gig because of the incident.

“The group is obviously not happy because of how they were mistreated, preference was given to a white woman. They were removed completely out of the airplane and had to book another flight but we lost money as they missed their performance because of the flight. Their flight was at 1 but they ended up flying at about 3 or so. We are currently talking with British Airways and yes we are laying a complaint against British Airways. It was blatant racism.” Said Tshiamo.
