Doc Shebeleza says radio and television personalities Arthur Mafokate, Robert Marawa and Bonang Matheba have forsaken Hlaudi Motsoeneng in his time of need.
“They are nowhere to be found, but we all benefited from Hlaudi, and it was important for us to show our appreciation for what he has done for us,” said Shebeleza.
He claimed Marawa would have long been fired at the SABC, but he was saved by Hlaudi.
“Bonang was also rescued by Hlaudi when she had problems at the SABC, but where is she today? Arthur today has a platform on SABC, thanks to Hlaudi, but they are not here. They are all sellouts.”
“I’m not fighting with the three, I’m just reminding them of the role Motsoeneng played in their careers for them to be where they are today,” he said.
Marawa and Motsoeneng replied to Doc Shebeleza’s remarks by saying he did not know the dynamics of their relationship.
“He is talking nonsense. He does not understand my relationship with Hlaudi, and if he is bold enough, he should call me and say all that to my face,” said Marawa.
Shebeleza also threw shade at production companies and music legends who received R50 000 each from Motsoeneng, saying they too should have been at the presser to show their support.
Motsoeneng said Shebeleza was “out of order” by calling people who were not at his press conference sellouts.
“I don’t agree with him. Yes, I have protected Marawa and Bonang, but them not coming to my press conference doesn’t mean anything,” he said.
