Department Of Sports, Arts, And Culture Exposes Makhadzi’s Financial Woes

Unsurprisingly, the internet had a field day with this revelation. Many netizens blasted the department for exposing Makhadzi's financial situation.

Mzansi was left stunned when singer Makhadzi confessed to seeking help from loan sharks to fund her trip to Los Angeles for the BET Awards.

This revelation raised eyebrows and questions about the Department of Sports, Arts, and Culture’s support for South African creatives.

Minister Gayton McKenzie, not one to shy away from controversy, instructed the department to release a statement addressing these allegations. And boy, did they say a mouthful!

The Department of Sports, Arts, and Culture did not hold back in its response. The newly-appointed minister ordered the release of names of creatives and athletes who had received financial assistance.

According to the statement, Makhadzi has been booked for several national events since 2023, with payments totaling R230k.

The department firmly rejected the notion that Makhadzi had not received support, stating, “DSAC therefore rejects the notion of creatives, who have received support from the department, inferring that they have not received support to pursue their talents.”

Unsurprisingly, the internet had a field day with this revelation. Many netizens blasted the department for exposing Makhadzi’s financial situation.

Perci57 questioned, “Was Makhadzi supposed to perform for free? Secondly, who approved such a poorly worded and crass release?”

_JustGail chimed in, “Bathong, funding an international trip and paying someone for doing their job as an artist are two different things. And you’re so wrong for revealing the amount.”

Motse_mo was equally unimpressed, stating, “It is going to be a long five years under this new minister. Not even a month in the new role and it’s a mess and not in a positive way.”

Edward_njabulo added, “This one sounds personal.”

Apostledeza demanded, “Tell us about Shimza and how much he has received in the past 14 months.”

As the dust settles, one thing remains clear: the relationship between South African creatives and the Department of Sports, Arts, and Culture needs a serious rethink.

While the department claims to support artists like Makhadzi, the singer’s admission to resorting to loan sharks suggests otherwise. Whether this public spat will lead to any substantial changes is anyone’s guess, but one thing’s for sure—Mzansi will be watching closely.
