Tshedi Mholo broke her three-year silence about the events that led to the demise of one of Mzansi’s most successful bands.

She said their journey was marred by manipulation, betrayal and mistrust.

According to the muso, the camel’s back broke the day band mate Bongani Nchang’s grandfather was buried in Klerksdorp in 2011.

That’s also the same day he dumped Mholo.

“He left me at his grandfather’s funeral and went to perform in Rustenburg without my knowledge,” said Mholo.

The songbird said she suspected nothing when Nchang disappeared, but was devastated when she discovered she was played.

“It took me by surprise and I was shocked to learn Bongani and the entire Malaika crew, including the road manager, had betrayed me,” she said.

“[This was also not] the first time it happened.”

According to Mholo, there was no accountability as far as managing funds was concerned, and moving from one manager to another only added fuel to the fire.

She accused Nchang of double standards.

“There were many instances where Bongani performed alone as Malaika without my knowledge,” said Mholo.

“There were also instances where he would double-book the band to disastrous consequences.”

She added that Nchang gave prospective clients his personal contact details with the pretext that they were hers. Upon establishing contact, they would then learn the numbers they were calling belonged to Nchang.

“I kept quiet for a long time, watching things spiral out of control. I hoped they would get better.

“I reached a point where I thought I should back off and see what happens,” she said.

“We had managerial malfunctions and no one from Sony was willing to intervene – to help us resolve [them].

“I used to complain to Sony as an individual, but my pleas fell on deaf ears.

“Right now, we are all suffering, including the brand we built with so much sacrifice.

“People still feel they want to see the band working again. But they don’t understand there were issues that needed to be resolved first so that everybody would be comfortable.”

Mholo said the band now finds itself in breach of contract with Sony Music.

The duo are one album short of their planned five.

Marketing manager at Sony Music Maria Hadjidimitriadis said: “I am not in a position to comment on the contract. However, I can confirm that there are positive developments, which I am not in a position to discuss.

“When there’s something new, we will notify you first.”

Nchang refused to comment, saying he did not want to do anything without the label’s consent.

He, instead, referred our enquiries to Sony Music.
