Johannesburg - There was a time when David Masondo was on the brink of joining the SASSA queue. Nearly penniless, the musician was in serious trouble until his manager came to the rescue.

Speaking to the Sowetan this week, Soul Brothers manager Bodloza Nzimande says he had to bail the group's members out after their explosive exit from Gallo.

The band had left Gallo because, as Soul Brothers member Moses Ngwenya says," they didn't take care of us."

That's when Bodloza decided to aid the group who were struggling and experiencing a slump in gigs and record sales.

'We are fans of their music.The CEO ( Bongani Mhlanga of Mvunolala management) and myself felt bad when we noticed that they were struggling. The money was not coming in. They were not getting shows and people were not talking about them," Bodloza says.

"They were at the bottom. The first thing we did was to help them get back on their feet financially," he adds.

The company, through their medical aid plan, even paid for the David's month long hospital stay until the musician passed away this past weekend.
