MrJazziQ, days after his name was dragged in claims of satanism and human sacrifice, issued a statement dousing fires that were ignited by an irresponsible broadcaster.
MrJazziQ demands apology from controversial podcaster
Represented by Tailor Made Legal Solutions, the Amapiano star addressed claims that were made on the recent episode of a podcast owned by Realegile ‘Rea’ Gopane.
In the viral snippet, the young broadcaster, who not so long ago was close to facing a lawsuit from Bonang Matheba, pinned the deaths of Amapiano stars Mongezi ‘Mpura’ Stuurman and Sakhile ‘Killer Kau’ Hlatshwayo squarely on the VSOP producer.
Rea, much to amazement of his co-hosts, spun a conspiracy theory that MrJazziQ had allegedly sacrificed his friends to advance his career.
In his statement, the Amapiano star vehemently refuted the claims. His lawyers noted that the unfounded allegations “have had a severe impact on Mr Manyoni, both emotionally and psychologically.”
“Mr [Tumelo] Manyoni who was not only a close friend and brother to the late Mr Mongezi ‘Mpura’ Stuurman and the late Sakhile ‘Killer Kau’ Hlatshwayo, would also like to rubbish all unfounded claims made against him in relation to the nature of their relationship,” JazziQ’s attorneys wrote.
A cease and desist was issued to the podcaster but, much like the case in Matheba’s situation, “these demands were not adhered to.”
“The matter will now be pursued civilly and criminally. No further comment will be issued out on this matter until all legal proceedings re concluded,” the statement read.
Gopane, at the time this article was published, had not bothered to honour the producer’s statement with a response.
Mpura, Killer Kau and three other occupants died in a horrific car crash in August 2021. Their deaths have been ruled as accidental.
