Poet and performer Busiswa isn’t
backing down after being accused of owing a Port Elizabeth promoter R10 000.
Ian Rockman from Irock Productions
claims Busiswa was paid the amount to perform at the Irock Festival late last
year but bad weather forced the event to be halted. He claims they then
verbally agreed that Busiswa would perform at another gig in the same area.
"Busiswa was booked for the
event and was fully paid. She already had another gig in PE and asked me to
find a secondary gig for her, which I did. The people from the first event
covered her flight and accommodation, the arrangement was that my driver would
wait for her to finish at the first event then drive her to my festival. But,
unfortunately, the heavy rain forced us to shut down and I then called to let
her know," Ian told Tshisalive.
When DRUM asked Busiswa about the
matter the Lahla hitmaker said she didn’t want to comment but made it clear
that she wasn’t the one at fault. “Did he tell you that he’s the one who
cancelled the show?” she said before hanging up.
