South African music executive Nota Baloyi has lashed out at singer Makhadzi — real name Ndivhudzannyi Ralivhona. This is after the Limpopo-born musician opened up about her strained relationship with her record label Open Mic. According to Nota, Makhadzi isn’t beautiful enough to have an attitude and won’t last long in the music industry if she continues to have one.
His post did not sit well with the singer’s fans who wasted no time telling him where to get off. As usual, Nota Baloyi isn’t mincing his words on Twitter.
The controversial entertainment manager has landed in hot water more than once over his tweets but continues to share scathing comments about any and everything.
His latest tweets have been directed at Ghanama hitmaker Makhadzi who recently opened up about her relationship with record company Open Mic. Taking to Twitter she wrote that she has been a slave for the company for the last three years.
Her comments appears to have upset Nota who says that Makhadzi isn’t pretty enough for her attitude. According to him, severing ties with her record label will end in her demise.
“Makhadzi isn’t pretty enough for her attitude… She won’t be missed. Her new lifestyle is going to be impossible to maintain & her music will be forgotten. Nobody knows where Nomcebo ended up & I’m willing to bet my life none of this would’ve happen if they were signed by whites!” he wrote.

Nota’s tweet did not sit well with Makhadzi’s fans who quickly told him off.
“Why are disrespecting makhadzi like this, comparing her with abo Nomcebo. Makhadzi was not made by anyone. She works her way up. No radio station, TV, media house or company that made makhadzi. Makhadzi will raise above in the entertainment, she came very far,” wrote one tweep while another said: Makhadzi don’t need record labels, but record labels need Makhadzi, let that sink in.
