DJ SHIMZA and Twins On Decks might have to face the music for not pitching for a gig they were allegedly paid for.
The DJs were booked to play on 1 April at Bohemian Lounge in Auckland Park, Joburg, but failed to pitch.
According to reliable sources, many people bought tickets to see Shimza perform, as they knew he would play early.
“The venue was packed to capacity and they kept on telling people Shimza and the Twins On Decks would be on later on that night,” said the source.
Another source told Sunday Sun there were booking problems because DJ Shimza was booked in Botswana that day and attended that gig.
The source added: “Twins On Decks asked the venue manager if they could come to the venue at 12am.
But the venue manager told them he couldn’t say much on the matter as he’s only the venue manager and Patrick “Prince Pezzy”Sikonde is the one who deals with artists.”
The source further said the artist had a contract with a brewer which sponsored the event.
Shimza has allegedly denied having a contract with any beer company, but it is rumoured that SAB will be taking him to court.
When asked to comment, event organiser Prince Peezy, said: “Yes, it’s true Shimza and Twins On Decks didn’t show up for their event and Twins On Decks apologised.”
Shimza was not available for comment, but his manager, known only as Melena, said: “I don’t know what you’re talking about. Shimza was where he was booked on the day. I don’t know anything about the event you’re talking about.”
Twins On Decks referred the SunTeam to their manager, Ryan Rigney, who said they met up with the parties involved on Tuesday and everything was sorted out.
“It was miscommunication, but the misunderstanding was sorted,” he said.
