A Pretoria-based budding promoter, Eddy Mashayamombe is fuming and has promised to decapitate Souljah Love’s head if he ever sets his foot in South Africa.
This follows the artiste’s no-show last Sunday resulting in fans running amok and destroying property worth thousands of rands at House28 in Pretoria.
Mashayamombe has vowed that if Jah Love dares to come back to South Africa, ‘only his head will be returned to Zimbabwe’.
“I had an agreement with Souljah Love to come and perform last week. He never pitched up even after paying him a deposit of R7000. I spent almost R26 000 on flight tickets after he told me he can not catch an early afternoon flight. I had to buy the tickets twice and then munhu orega kuuya” said an upset Mashayamombe
He showed H-metro tickets bought for Souljah Love, Victor Mukumana and Tatenda Lyndon Madora.
“We last communicated with them around 4pm and they said they were at the airport. They switched off their phones and I had people waiting for them at OR Tambo Airport until after 10pm ,” he said adding
Mashayamombe who had been at the bar collecting entry fees fled the scene after fans went berserk.
According to one of the organizers, in the process of trying to refund those who had paid, some rogue elements who were milling outside also wanted to be refunded and all hell broke loose.
The fans ended up destroying the sound system and furniture in the bar.
“The owner of the bar reported me to the police and he opened a case of vandalism against me. I have to go to court to answer to the charges as the organizer of the show
What I want to tell Souljah Love is he must reimburse me my money for the air tickets, deposit and expenses that run around R40 000
Unless all my expenses and the damages caused at the bar are paid, I want to let all the promoters around South Africa know that even if they hire him to perform, I will make sure he will not perform. I will even my power to peruse him in Harare “
Efforts to get a comment from Souljah Love were fruitless as he never responded to the messages sent to him.
