The owner of Mabala Noise Entertainment Company Reggie Nkabinde has finally spoken out about the war of words between them and EFF leader Julius Malema.
Speaking on live TV at the IEC result centre on Friday, Malema blatantly accused Reggie of using the company as a front to launder government money.
According to Malema, reggie who is also the ANC Youth League treasurer general pays artists “not less than R5 million” to sign them. The artists then return the favour by performing at ANC political events.
In addition, Malema extended his accusing fingers to the Minister of Water and Sanitation Nomvula Mokonyane. In his opinion, Mokonyane is an accomplice who awards illegal tenders to Reggie through her department.
However, Reggie denied all the claims during a press conference in Johannesburg. He added that they are making legal arrangements with lawyers to know how to approach the matter.
“We are still consulting our legal team as to how to go forward. Julius grew up in jail, he likes being in jail so it’s a waste of time to take him to court.”
He went on to emphasize that Mabala Noise Entertainment company is an independently owned establishment that doesn’t require assistance from government.
“Why would artists sell their soul for R5million. We will continue to continue in our quest to ensure an African child continues,” he said.
“The day we take him to task he must be able to prove his statements for now anyone who wants proof must go ask Julius,” he added.
The company recently signed new artists like Riky Rick, Gigi Laymayne, Nasty C and Khanyi to the label.
Also, international artist Chris Brown was brought to the country by Mabala to perform at its marquee at The Durban July last month.
