IT SEEMS there will be no kissing and making up for DJ Zinhle Jiyane and Bonang Matheba.
On Sunday, it was reported that the two would meet behind closed doors. There were also rumours that they would settle their differences outside court.
However, DJ Zinhle’s manager, Nomndeni Mdakhi said: “We can confirm there is no sit-down planned and nothing like this was communicated by DJ Zinhle’s team to Bongani Khoza, Bonang’s lawyer, as stated in Sunday World on Sunday. This is false.”
“After receiving no feedback from Bongani Khoza, another urgent letter was sent by Jeffrey Afriat on 18 September to which we are still awaiting a response. As it stands, DJ Zinhle and her legal team have not heard from Bongani Khoza or his client Bonang Matheba. We hereby distance ourselves from all allegations made by the article which appeared in Sunday World on 20 September regarding a supposed meeting and an extension of the olive branch.”
Sunday World had reported that the two had agreed to settle out of court after Matheba’s lawyer wrote to DJ Zinhle, giving her an ultimatum to either apologise for accusing his client of being a home wrecker or face litigation.
The letter, seen by Sunday World and demanding that the apology be made by last Monday, read in part: “Our client has thus instructed us to demand from you, as we hereby do, that you give an undertaking, by no later than the close of business on Monday, September 14 2015, that you shall refrain from publishing defamatory statements about her.
“The apology shall be made by no later than the close of business on Monday, September 14 2015, and refrain from threatening our client. Should you not accede to the aforesaid demands, our instructions are to immediately apply for an interdict against yourself at the High Court, in respect of the threatening conduct that you are displaying against our client and the costs of such an application shall be for your account.”
However, On Sunday, DJ Zinhle tweeted: “Such garbage on a Sunday afternoon. Apology? Lord help us all!”
Zoe Msutwana from DNA Brands, Bonang’s management team, said: “As previously communicated we have no comment as this matter is currently with the lawyers.”
Khoza also did not want to comment. “I have no comment whatsoever. This issue has run its course.”
The issue between the two began when DJ Zinhle said on her blog that her break-up with rapper AKA was because he had been having an affair with Bonang.
