Following the glitz & glam at the 2017 Durban July, musician and businessman Zakes Bantwini took to Twitter to unravel a few issues with Mabala Noise.
In a series of tweets, Bantwini expressed his “disappointment" at the way things were "handled” at the Mabala Noise concert on Friday.
1.Dust has settled,Let me express my disappointment at the way things were handled at the @Mabala_Noise concert on Fri
He accused Mabala noise of utter ‘disrespect’ and "lack of professionalism"
Bantwini highlights his reasons for venting on social media:
3.Lack of professionalism, communication and disrespect was wa displayed by @Mabala_Noise team.
4.I'm communicating this on social media because no one from @Mabala_Noise has had decency to respond to my office over numerals attempts.
He continued to call out Mabala Noise:
5.It's my first time I'm subject to this ordeal & to think that we as the industry are treating each other like this is appalling
Bantwini is raging because despite being part of the Mabala Noise Durban July pre-party line-up he did not perform, yet claims he was "billed" for the event.
6.While we as the industry fighting to be respected, we cannot allow a fellow record label to show us a middle finger cc @Mabala_Noise
Batwini is not backing down
7.I'm waiting on you @Mabala_Noise to explain why I was not on Friday's lineup, when I was billed to perform at the event.
