Local rapper Kwesta has called the 'Real Talk With Anele' host Anele Mdoda after the R500 000 interview scandal with the Minister of Social Development, Bathabile Dlamini.
In a heated exchange between the 'Spirit' rapper and Ms Mdoda, Kwesta commented on an article where the 'Real Talk With Anele' executive producer Yusuf Stevens stated that "it is not uncommon for people to pay for exposure on Real Talk".
In the quote tweet, Kwesta implied that this is the reason that he has not been able to appear on the popular talk show.
.@RealTalkOn3 executive producer Yusuf Stevens of @CheekyMedia_SA tells @News24 it is not uncommon for people to pay for exposure on Real Talk with @Anele on @SABC3 and that mostly brands make payment to appear. [Viewers are however never told this by the show or the SABC.] https://t.co/Xy53ES7rI8
Mdoda did not take these claims lightly responding to his accusations stating that he was "lying to people" and the show had invited him two times and that he didn't pitch for either of them.
Kwesta. You are lying to people. You have not pitched to 4 interviews that you have been invited to. FOUR !!!! Two on radio where the Park Town Boys band were going to surprise you with their rendition of Ngud and twice on Real Talk.I have the emails confirming... @KwestaDaKAR https://t.co/XdPhU5EYqq
Kwesta then quickly changed his tune, apologising to Mdoda, her team and her viewers.
Again. Apologies, how can I make it up to you? That was unprofessional & disrepectful to you your team, your listeners.. Well & truly sorry!
“lying to people” is an unfair remark for a question though... Uxolo sisi regardless. https://t.co/cm9onSV9x7
Mdoda then accepted his apology stating that they "are cool" and he was "forgiven".
We are cool, we will carry on asking till you come. We even hired a performance desk for you chap but we are cool. The team will try again. We are good and you are forgiven. Spiriiiiiiiiiiit :) https://t.co/USYT575Yy5
