Good news for Thuli Phongolo maybe… As DJ Maphorisa, revealed he is making serious money now. The DJ made the revelation after announcing his performance at the Dubai Expo.
Maphorisa celebrated his first performance in Dubai at the 2020 Dubai Expo. The event was postponed last year and kept the name even though it happened in 2021.
Phori couldn’t help but brag about how he was making “serious money”. The DJ is one of the most popular and highly regarded DJ in the country and has helped spread Mzansi sounds around the world.
“Madumane ke star. First time performing as Madumane and it is in Dubai and I’m getting serious money,” he wrote.
Maphorisa joins the many Mzansi celebrities who travelled to Dubai for the Dubai Expo, including Blaq Diamond, Dali Wonga, Mandla Ngcongwane, Zikhona Sodlaka, Thando Thabethe and her beau Lunga Tshabalala.
The Amapiano sound maker said he enjoyed travelling because it helped him broaden his horizons on how different countries do things in the music industry.
I’m about the game. I’m not perfect. I know I tend to do sh*t sometimes. I’ve travelled a lot .and I’ve seen what kind of formulas they use. That’s why you ask yourself why Maphorisa can rap, sing, DJ and do business. It’s because I’ve travelled and adapted.
“I understand how the music industry works, I understand how the industry operates. I have created my formula to make music and top charts. I created that sh*t from scratch. I sat down and analysed,” he said.
Last week, Phori and Thuli were rumoured to be dating after a video of them together at an event surfaced online. Both have yet to make any official confirmation.
