A war seems to be brewing between Mshoza’s sisters and her husband, Prince Mzwandile Dlamini over the late singer’s royalties.
The dramatic dispute between between the three spiraled in the wrong direction when Mshoza’s sisters allegedly gave Dlamini a decent beating and damaged his phone after a confrontation at a mortuary on Friday.
The sister was arrested for assault and damage to property but was later released.
The behind-the-scenes drama, consistent with those on the brink of Mshoza’s family and therefore the sisters, started when Mshoza’s older sister, Thandi, and her younger sister Seipati, visited the funeral home to scrub her body and to urge her death certificate but the parlour would only release the certificate to Dlamini.
This, the loved one explained, was because it had been discovered that though Mshoza, whose real name was Nomasonto Maswanganyi, was not with Dlamini, the couple had not officially divorced.
Another loved one said the sisters also approached the Southern African Music Rights Organisation (Samro) hoping to secure R25 000 to use towards preparations for the funeral, but said they were also turned away by officials, who said they might only ask Dlamini.
The funeral home called Dlamini to tell him that there have been people that were posing for Mshoza’s death certificate. “He then rushed there. On his arrival a war of words ensued between him and Mshoza’s relations ,” said the source on the brink of the family.
A local publication has seen a video that shows during a ll|one amongst|one in every of”> one among Mshoza’s sisters engaged in a verbal altercation with a person who couldn’t be identified within the video. She is additionally shown learning a smashed phone from the ground of the funeral parlor .
Dlamini’s refusal to reimburse the family for all the expenses that they had incurred when preparing for the funeral had apparently caused the altercation.
One of Mshoza’s relatives told an area publication that her sister’s husband had apparently paid quite R100 000 towards the preparations for the burial and that they asked Dlamini to reinburse his money, as he had the signing rights over everything. But this apparently didn’t sit right with him.
The source added that there was an exchange of harsh words and Thandi eventually lost her cool. consistent with the source, Thandi threw the primary klap and managed to interrupt Dlamini’s phone.
“They were quickly separated,” said the source.
Thandi referred all queries to the family spokesperson, Thanduxolo Jindela, who refused to comment.
