Nandi Madida has taken to social media to set the record straight over the news article that she and her manager are currently at loggerheads over money owed to her of approximately R3.7 million. Enough money to cover what Zakes Bantwini is worth, but we are not there!

In addressing the matter Nandi has released a statement addressing the allegations. The statement starts of by clarifying that, “I can confirm a summons has been sent this week from my legal team to an agent who worked on the LUX campaign for Unilever.”
The real tea then starts as names are dropped and the dragging begins. Nandi’s statement goes on to say that, “Thamsanqa Fakazi (known as Amaru Da Costa) from Ade Holding Propriety who was not my manager, and has never been my manager as his company is the agent of this campaign. He has been issued with a summons for outstanding money he has not paid me from the LUX campaign, as the ambassador.”
The statement goes on to suggest that Thamsanqa or Amaru was paid the money in full by LUX to pay Nandi. But without saying it directly, the statement does suggest that Amaru was paid and decided why would Mrs. Madida need the money, if she is happily married to one of the biggest musicians and producers in South Africa? So with that thinking it seems that Amaru felt who would it hurt to bag the money for himself.
If you were wondering if Thamsanqa is a big deal, than the answer is, yes he is. The man has connections with Black Coffee’s Soulistic Music, and has is a heavy weight behind the scenes in the music industry. But he, like the Thami Ndlala’s of the world, has little social media presence.
