Bonang Matheba's former makeup artist, Muzi Zuma, has been paid by the owner of the presenter's former management company, Sylvester Chauke.

After revealing earlier this week that Zuma was still waiting for payment from the "Being Bonang" star, DNA Brand Architects owner Sylvester Chauke has come out and paid the makeup artist himself.

Speaking the TshisaLIVE, Chauke stated that Zuma "is trying to build and grow his business" and "as a fellow black entrepreneur" he hates "seeing [black people] having to struggle".

"I have decided to settle Muzi’s outstanding cost. I have the utmost respect for Muzi and his work and through DNA, we have done some great work. With this back and forth, at the core, is a young man who is trying to build and grow his business and I thought it important to settle the matter on his behalf.

"Moreover, as a fellow black entrepreneur, I hate seeing us having to struggle to be remunerated for services that we render and ill-treat each other sometimes. This is not how we should do business. We should grow each other instead."

Posting on Twitter, Zuma confirmed that he had received payment and is glad to "close a horrible door".
