Celebrity Services Africa (CSA) has issued a response to the furore caused by its former client Bonang Matheba.
CSA responds to Bonang Matheba: Here’s what they said
The talent management group was dragged through the mud by the 34-year-old media magnate who, on Tuesday, invited more than 15 000 listeners on her Twitter Space room to make a startling announcement.
Matheba revealed that she had fired CSA after three years of a business relationship that saw the expansion of a number of the star’s ventures.
“Today, I announce that I’ve terminated that contract with them and they will no longer represent me and any of my business ventures,” Matheba announced.
Shortly after the announcement sent the internet into pandemonium, CSA surfaced with their rebuttal. The talent management group which has represented the likes of Naomi Campbell and Quinton Fortune stated that contrary to claims made by their former client, “Matheba is currently in breach of multiple contracts with various clients.”
“She has been derelict to these brands and indeed her own for the past six months,” CSA noted in a statement.
Matheba accused of spreading lies
In the brief statement Matheba had delivered over her Twitter Space, the 34-year-old revealed that her lawyers have been instructed to pursue an investigation into possible criminal conduct allegedly committed by the talent management agency.
“I have instructed my lawyers to investigate the possibility of criminal conduct by the company and its representatives. I will revert over the next few days with updates,” Matheba added before the Space room she’d opened crashed.
CSA responded to the allegations, claiming that they were, at the very least, scandalous, and at most, baseless.
“We look forward to the day in court with Bonang [Matheba], exposing the false and half truths that she has been spreading,” the group noted.
Matheba vowed to return in the days to come, to unearth more skeletons involving CSA. Similarly, the management firm is awaiting a response from the 34-year-old’s attorneys on letters sent.
