This comes after Skolopad referred to Zodwa as a "trailer" and claimed that the only reason she is famous is because of DJ Tira. 

"Tira is my mentor and I am so blessed to have him in my life. I follow R25 000. I follow the money.  If I don't follow him, who should I follow," she said.

Zodwa also refuted the claims that DJ Tira is only reason she is famous stating that she works with other artists too. 

"Tira is a hard worker and a family man. We perform in different places and sometimes we work together. Skolopad needs to find a mentor and someone who will help her to rebrand herself. I'm tired of this whole thing. I have better things to do with my time," she stated.
