Music producer King Monada recently found himself in a sticky situation after failing to show up at a gig in Tzaneen.
Not only did he face criticism for his absence, but his family and bodyguards were also harassed by angry drunk patrons.
The incident occurred when King Monada failed to pitch at a gig held at the Madupa Lodge in Bolobedu. Disgruntled patrons, fueled by alcohol, marched to his home and vandalised his property in the process.
It wasn’t the first time the star faced backlash on social media. Previously, King Monada made headlines for refusing to take a picture with a die-hard fan, which was caught on camera. This incident further fueled the fire of criticism against him.
Monada’s music label, Monada Music, released a statement explaining that his absence was due to multiple gigs he had to attend at various locations. However, this explanation did little to quell the anger of the patrons and lodge owner who demanded answers.
As news of the incident spread on social media, netizens voiced their opinions. Some questioned why King Monada had taken on multiple shows on the same day, while others criticised his alleged greed and lack of responsibility.
While the incident is unfortunate, it serves as a reminder that artists should prioritise their commitments and manage their schedules effectively to avoid disappointing fans and facing backlash.
King Monada’s mishap highlights the importance of professionalism and communication in the entertainment industry. It’s a lesson that artists, including Monada, should take to heart to maintain their reputation and the trust of their fans.
