In 2001, gospel legend Solly Moholo and legendary kwaito star, Doc Shebeleza, shared a dream of hosting a talent search music festival that would give young artists exposure.
Committed to the exciting project, the two artists verbally agreed to contribute R60 000 each to organise the event.
14 years later, Moholo – known for his hit songs such as Ke Tla Tseba Joang and Mangithanda Ngingagxuma – claims he paid Ebumnandini hitmaker the agreed amount but the event never happened.
Speaking to Daily Sun, the fuming ZCC (Zion Christian Church) singer feels robbed and wants his money back.
“We agreed to each contribute R60 000 to organise the show.
“I stuck to my word and gave R60 000 to Doc, but 14 years later there’s no sign of the festival or my money.
“I trusted Doc and he was happy with the idea of helping young people.
“I’m very disappointed with how things turned out.”
Moholo said Shebeleza ignored his attempt to get his money back countless times.
“He didn’t pay me and then stopped answering my calls.
“I tried to see him at his office at the SABC in Joburg but he dodged me. All I want is my money.
“I didn’t expect to be robbed by someone like Doc,” said Moholo.
In his defence, Shebeleza, whose real name is Victor Bogopane, said Moholo is not telling the truth.
“Only God and Solly know the truth. Since Solly claims to be a Christian, he must tell the truth,” he said.
