Watch: King Monada, wives and kids allegedly attacked
King Monada, real name Khutso Steven Kgatle, was reportedly attacked by a mob at his luxury Tzaneen mansion.
Award-winning musician King Monada and his family were allegedly attacked after the Aya Kuwe hitmaker failed to honour his booking for a gig in Limpopo.
The singer made the allegations in a statement that was released on his Facebook account in Sunday, 11 February.
KING MONADA ACCUSES LODGE OWNER OF DAMAGING HIS PROPERTY
King Monada was booked to perform at a Valentine’s pre-party in Madupa Lodge, situated in Bokhuta village, Tzaneen. However, he did not pitch.
According to the musician’s statement, the owner of the lodge, Peter Madupa, launched a physical attack on him, his two wives and children.
“We do not appreciate the manner in which the issue was handled by Mr Peter Madupa of Madupa Lodge, whom we held in high regard,” read the statement.
The Malwedhe hitmaker’s management accused Madupa of driving to his place of residence with a truck full of passengers who allegedly seemed to be highly intoxicated.
“They violated the freedom of security and maliciously damaged the property of the family.
“This conduct is completely unacceptable and we consider taking legal action to protect the rights of King Monada and his family and to deter anyone from interfering with their rights.”
WHY HE MISSED HIS GIG
King Monada did, however, apologise to his fans for failing to honour his performance. He explained that he did not pitch for the gig because he was overbooked.
“We had many gigs to attend at various places, and due to the distance and time constraint we were not able to make it,” the statement said.
“We urge our fans to not be distracted by any negativity that may be caused by this and we remain committed to provide entertainment services to our fans,” it said.
NOT THE FIRST MISSED BOOKING
Last week, ZiMoja reported that King Monada refused to pay back R60 000 which was paid to him to perform at Sasha Lifestyle in Tembisa, Gauteng. The booking was reportedly made in December last year.
In addition, Sunday World reports that his family recently blocked the sheriff of the court from delivering the summons at his mansion in Tzaneen after Limpopo Legends Awards (Lilas) sued him for failing to honour his booking. He was reportedly paid R35 000.
