Mlindo The Vocalist and DJ Maphorisa’s beef quickly died down as they have buried the hatchet. After their public spat, Mlindo showed love to Maphorisa on Instagram. Now, fans have been curious about the state of their relationship. Mlindo told ZiMoja that they are cool and it was all just a misunderstanding.
In 2021, Maphorisa took to Facebook and penned a lengthy post bashing Mlindo The Vocalist and his former manager Nyiko The Great. In it, he expressed sadness over being ‘backstabbed’ by Mlindo. The Ama Blesser hitmaker is signed to Phori’s label Blaqboy Records.
“We are good now,”Mlindo told the blog. “It was just a misunderstanding between my manager and him. He couldn’t get hold of me and blamed Nyiko. Ntwana took over and Maphorisa lost contact with me. It had nothing to do with exploitation like everyone made it out to be…We sat down, had a chat, and cleared the air. We were in the studio three days ago working on the deluxe version of his album Lindokuhle released in 2022,” he added.
When all of this unfolded, people drew to the similar conclusions that Maphorisa was exploiting Mlindo. Those type of allegations would not be anything new as Maphorisa’s reputation is like that. Other celebs rallied behind Mlindo and encouraged him to return to studio and they include DJ Shimza, Samthing Soweto, and Sjava.
“I will fetch you with a stick because I do not know why you are not coming back from Port Shepstone to work,” said Sjava.
In his rant Phori said, “It’s so crazy how people will backstab you,” started off Maphorisa. “…I had to get him (Mlindo Da Vocalist) a road manager, cool I asked Nyiko to help Mlindo. At that time Nyiko was super broke but cool hard working guy so I gave him a chance not knowing [he was] the devil.
“To cut the story short after two years I hear Nyiko is Mlindo’s manger,” an astonished Maphorisa said. When he found out of their sinister actions, he said he just left them like that, “I let them be even though I could take him back, I left them to do their thing.”
Mlindo’s former manager Nyiko defended Mlindo to Daily Sun, “He has started a big fight and he’s going to lose because he’s not being honest. We’ll expose his shenanigans and he’s not going to like it.”
“Maphorisa neglected Mlindo for two years. He forced Mlindo to do Amapiano and when he refused, Maphorisa threatened to dump him. There was a huge fight and as Mlindo’s manager, I needed to step in and save his career,” Nyiko told Daily Sun. “When Mlindo bought his mother a house, Maphorisa was not there. When Mlindo had two car accidents in 2020, Maphorisa was not there. ”
