The season 2 winner of Vuzu’s competitive show, The Hustle, Rapper Flex Rabanyan has come out to lay huge allegations on the 2 companies charged with promoting him after winning the show, for sabotaging his growing career midway through his development.
Flex Made this allegation to his Twitter followers while talking about the South African Music industry.
Flex alleged that M-Net and African Star Communications had wrecked his music career.
“After I won Vuzu HustIe I was given a “management” deal. I was told to update my bookings email on all social media. There was a lady at African Star Communications (Justine) who was instructed to ignore all bookings (effectively blocking me from income). I found out,” he wrote.
The rapper who has been open about being in debt said he had been “miserable” since winning the competition in 2017.
“For the longest, I had to pretend I was OK with my career and passion being taken away, I won’t lie though that thing crushed me from deep inside my soul. I’ve been such a miserable person since Vuzu Hustle did me dirty.”
Flex alluded that there was more than he was airing, saying he would spill all the beans on a podcast that would expose all the big men sitting on a round table and milking people like him.
After I get on the podcast and speak, the South African music industry will shake. I might also be a target for assassination afterwards but it’s OK. It’s better than feeling like I let down 2-million people. I feel like SA Hip Hop is dead coz of me.”
African Star Communications CEO, Farah Fortune however vehemently denied Flex Rabanyan’s and said she had escalated the matter to her legal authorities.
Flex also revealed that Farah Fortune had blocked him on all social media platforms.

I still wanna tell the story of how Vuzu Hustle worked hand-in glove with African Star Communications and MNet staff to sabotage my career after winning “The Hustle.” I’ve never gone into detail, but it cuts deep because people still blame me for ‘blowing it’ 💔

That’s why I’ve been blackballed in the industry. I’m a real person who owns up to the reality of his situations. Me lying about my streams won’t help me grow. That’s why I’m out of place in Hip Hop, I’m not a liar https://t.co/VgI8RHwaUS
