    DJ Maphorisa feuds with Afropiano festival promoters over denied payments

    Now well known as Lawd Porry, DJ Maphorisa has been dragged by the Afropiano festival promoters after he made it clear that he will not be performing at the festival in Cape Town and yet he has received payment for it.

    Promoting the festival, the AfroPiano Fest had included DJ Maphorisa on their line-up with other top amapiano artists, such as Kelvin Momo and Ruger.

    Taking to his social media pages, Lawd Porry revealed that he would be performing out of the country and not at the festival.

    He posted the a picture with a big red X over the line-up poster for the festival, and he captioned by saying: “@afropianofest Totally disrespectful especially a promoter coming from outside the country n trying to make money with us ❌,”

    The international disc jockey also mentioned that his artists Nia Pearl and Tyler ICU wouldn’t be attending the event and hoped that Focalistic had been paid.

    On the other end, AfroPiano Fest refuted the allegations of no payment, and said: “It has come to our attention that one of the acts we booked (DJ Maphorisa) was paid and received a contract from his management for our closing party at the One Club on Sunday 22nd has decided to deny any knowledge of the booking and has gone on social media to defame our character with hate speech even though he is fully aware of the booking and accepted the booking,”

    While taking out files and WhatsApp screenshots proving that Lawd Porry, the organisers also shared that they’ve removed him from the line-up.

    Kelvin Momo also has said he won’t performing at the festival as he hasn’t received payment.
