Babes Wodumo’s former manager Victor Dlokolo has been strongly accused of defrauding West Ink Records which the singer is signed to.
Via a lengthy post on Babes’ Instagram, West ink boss and singer Mampintsha who is also dating Babes, pointed accusing fingers towards Babes Wodumo’s former manager.
The message was used as an avenue to inform fans and clients of the channel to follow for bookings. According to the statement, the company has been defrauded severally by a manager whose name was not revealed.
The statement reads;
“West ink would like to apologise for any confusion experienced, there is a transition between old and new management hence some delays please bear with us. We are requesting proof of payment from people who have booked us , because the previous manager defrauded the company by channeling some of the money into his account instead of that of West ink. We also appeal to you to please use 081 306 1410 and not any other number for West ink’s bookings as there is someone using our old number for bookings which is not legit. We apologise once again, thank you for your support and are looking forward to working with you.”
As a result, Babes Wodumo’s former manager Victor Dlokolo arrived at the conclusion that the accusing fingers were for him. This is irrespective of the fact that the statement did not mention names.
Victor who recently left the record company explained that he had an issue with the company before he left. He explained that the problem started after he made an invoice of R10 000 to pay two assistants who were helping him.
Apparently, he had his reasons and insisted that Mampintsha would have asked for an explanation from him.
“I think the statement on Instagram is referring to me, because I made an invoice for two admins, who were helping me out to run the show. I got them in because I was overloaded with work,” he said.
“At first, I paid them from my own salary of R7000 per month, but since the salary was little, I made an invoice of R10000 to pay them.”
Nevertheless, he admitted that his action was totally out of line.
