Local rapper Mxolisi “Zulu Boy” Majozi is in hot water for claiming that he has left an organisation called the Track Visual Dimension Division (TVDD) of which he was the official spokesperson.
TVDD is the brainchild of controversial organisation the Delangokubona SA Business Forum.
Majozi said on social media that he was stepping down because the organisation was “run by bullies”.
TVDD is an organisation that runs a studio that allows artists to record their music and ensure they get money from the work that they produce.
Speaking to Sunday World, Majozi said he was not leaving the organisation but noted that his term as spokesperson was coming to an end.
“They are bullies, but I am unable to talk to you,” he said. The Nomalanga rapper confirmed he was working on a new music project called Piyano Party with gospel singer Khanyi Nzuza.
Delangokubona has been previously accused of using mafia-style tactics to protest for the rights of black people in construction and the arts. But the organisation said the musician was not supposed to say he was stepping down because he has not been relieved of his duties.
“It’s not right nor fair. He has not stepped down, (it’s) because he wants to work on his music career,” said president of TVDD Scebi Gwala.
“We are fine with him focusing on his career. He was a good spokesperson.
“We are not bullies, we (are) just fighting for the rights of black people,” he added. “It’s a construction (group) which later aligned with people in the arts.”
