Renowned South African musician Makhadzi has hit a new milestone after her song ‘Ganama’ featuring Prince Benza went platinum.
The song went viral since its release in July. A few months back, King Monada accused Makhadzi of short-changing him and removing his lines from the song which he claimed was released without his consent.
However, Makhadzi who featured Prince Benza held that ‘Ganama’ was solely her creation and not King Monada as he claimed.
To fight back, King Monada released a new jam dubbed ‘Ghanama S Plus’. He released the song in retaliation to fellow musician Makhadzi who on July 8, 2021 released her version dubbed ‘Ganama’ excluding King Monada’s verse.
But, the two artists recently buried the hatchet and performed the song together at a public concert. They then embraced each other for minutes throwing the crowd into a frenzy.
Makhadzi’s musical star keeps shining brighter by the day and her fan base is increasing exponentially. She is now the most followed artist in Limpopo with 4.2 million followers on Facebook and third in South Africa.
When she attended a music concert in Harare, the ‘African Queen’ album composer shocked many as her tickets were totally sold out. She flew back home R1.4 Million richer in place of the projected R300 000.
Just recently, she was given a VIP treatment in Botswana. Gaborone Mayor received her at the airport and whisked her away in a limousine. She has also bagged multi-million deals from ‘Kokhova’ album.
