Nkazimulo “TNS” Ngema has been called out by an event organiser named Lonwabo Nonkonyana after refusing to show up at an event in December 2022.
According to Daily Sun, the musician was booked to perform at Nkandla Bar and Lounge in Lusikisiki, Eastern Cape, but didn’t pitch after receiving full payment.
He warned they paid him the full booking fee and they obliged.
“We booked TNS for our event called Toast to Summer last year in December. The purpose of this event was to welcome the first week of December. TNS was our main act for the night. He charged us R10 500. He also asked that we buy him and his crew alcohol. In addition to this we booked him accommodation,” Lonwabo said.
On the day of the gig, Ngema disappointed the organiser who lost R40 000.
“Eventually, we gave up and refunded people their money. We lost about R40 000 because of TNS. This money was from gate and we had to pay it back to the people,” he said.
Reacting to the claim, the musician said it is true, and he will be refunding the money.
“I didn’t attend their event because they failed to fulfill our agreement. I told them that I need more than one event in the Eastern Cape, otherwise it’d be a loss for me. I can also confirm that they paid R10 500 but it would’ve been a loss to travel from KZN to Eastern Cape for that amount,” said TNS.
“I also suggested that they do another event and add a few gigs then I can come. If they cannot do that, I am more than willing to refund them,” he told the publication.
