Letty Mncube is blaming DJ Maphorisa of scamming her. “I started talking to Maphorisa late last year,” said the up-and-coming record label owner.

She revealed that she was offered some promotional work earlier this year for her two artists and she agreed.

“Initially, he wanted R48 000 for PR work, the recording of songs, getting gigs for the artists, getting their songs to trend on social media, posting their work on his social media pages and attracting public attention,” she said.

“The deal sounded good to me but I didn’t have the R48 000.”

She claimed that Maphorisa accepted R1 500 and the balance was to be paid in instalments.

“I ended up paying R3 500. I became suspicious when he failed to post my artists on his social media page. On the day we were supposed to meet he didn’t pick up my calls.”

Daily Sun has a number of voice notes between Letty and Maphorisa and in one of the voice note, Maphorisa tells Letty he normally charges R48 000 but he will do it for R10 000.

“I can see we can make a lot of money out of your artist. She is a star. The balance can be paid in instalments once the artist starts making money,” he is heard in a clip.

To close the deal, she alleges she was given a contract to sign. Daily Sun has the contract and deposit slips.

“Maphorisa never fulfilled his contractual obligations. Right now, I feel robbed and want my money back.”

When Maphorisa was questioned about Letty, he hung up the phone and didn’t answer again. He also ignored WhatsApp messages or questions on his social media accounts.
