South African Afropop star Mlindo The Vocalist and DJ Maphorisa, an amapiano pioneer are back together.
They pair has officially agreed on a deal that will see them working together again.
This reunion follows what can be described as a rocky year which was filled with rivalry along with bitter public feuds.
This was revealed by Maphorisa’s manager and business partner Thuli Keupilwe.
She shared the good news on her Instagram page.
She wrote:“Welcome back home Mlindo The Vocalist.”The post came long with a poster which showed his new booking email for Blaq Boy Music, which is Maphorisa’s record label.
You will recall that just some months ago Maphorisa was on Facebook bad mouthing Mlindo and his manager Nyiko Bilankulu. He accused them of backstabbing him.
“It’s so crazy how people will backstab you,” he said.
“Mlindo the Vocalist came to Jozi. He didn’t know anyone and I had to get him a road manager.”
“At that time Nyiko was super broke but a cool, hard-working guy so I gave him a chance, not knowing the devil. To cut the story short, after two years, I hear Nyiko is Mlindo’s manager.
“They cut off my percentage, he promoted himself. I said I will let them be even though I could take him back. I left them to do their thing.”
This got to Bilankulu who responded through aMacG’s “Podcast and Chill” to clear the air.
He said Maphorisa took the wrong route and that he should have called him and not take to social media.
The duo however reconciled in May as Mlindo announced that Maphorisa was featured on his new album, “Lindokuhle” .
