DJ Tira unleashes his lawyers on Luke Ntombela

Popular DJ and producer Mthokozisi Khathi, also known as DJ Tira, has unleashed lawyers on musician Luke Ntombela following an interview with Durban-based SABC radio station Ukhozi FM.

Ntombela, recently interviewed on Ukhozi FM’s breakfast show, revealed that she remembers waking up in bed with the DJ at his home years ago.

She said she wants answers as to what happened that night because she cannot remember.

According to Ntombela, she went to the DJ’s house that was nearby the studio to request that the e-hailing service pick her up.

Cease-and-desist letter

On Monday, DJ Tira’s lawyers posted a cease-and-desist letter from his attorneys, instructing Ntombela to stop talking about the acclaimed DJ on her social media accounts.

“Our clients have advised us of [the] continuous assassination of their characters and brand perpetuated by your posts on various social media accounts of unfounded, baseless, and defamatory allegations against them,” wrote the lawyers.

The lawyers said the conduct is causing serious and severe harm to their client’s esteemed brand and reputation.

“It is our further instruction that you were on the Ukhozi FM radio station and again made serious, baseless, and unfounded defamatory statements against our clients.

“It became apparent from the Ukhozi FM radio station interview that your allegations were devoid of substance and logic but full of malice and a desire to blackmail our clients into paying you money for undetermined reasons under the guise of our client owing you some money for performing musical exercises,” reads the letter.

Lawyers want a retraction

DJ Tira’s lawyers also said they demanded that the musician publish a retraction.

“We demand a retraction of such malicious and defamatory statements against our clients through the same social media you used to publish them.

“You must further conduct a radio interview through the same radio station, retract the interview you conducted, and offer an unconditional apology.”

The retractions are expected to be done within seven days.

“Failure of which will leave our clients without an option but to seek legal redress against your unlawful conduct, to protect our clients’ brand.”
