IS that a beef brewing between popular Durban rappers, Duncan and Zakwe or it’s just another publicity stunt? On Monday, Duncan wrote a scathing post on Facebook where he was rubbishing rumours that he is beefing with Zakwe because of jealousy. It turns out the so-called beef has been unfolding silently behind the scenes for a couple of months.

The two were tight as knives not long ago, featuring each other on songs, but it seems their friendship has hit rock bottom. And what makes matters worse is the fact that they have even blocked each other on social media, according to Duncan’s Facebook post.  The Mi Thatha hit-maker, Duncan who is also known as Skuva, wrote on Facebook that people have been asking why he is not posting about Zakwe’s new release. Zakwe dropped BIS and Sebentin which features Cassper Nyovest and Musilohiq. “USKUVA WHY ENGAYI PUSH INGOMA KA ZAKWE UNOMONA LOYAMJITA KIFIKIFI ...SENGISISHILO ISIZATHU STILL FUTHI NINA SENITHI USKUVA UTHANDA IDRAMA ay engathi abanye benu anizazi NIFUNANI,” he wrote.

He blames most of Durban underground rappers for fuelling this beef up. He also claims that his fellow rappers want to see him fail. “Most of underground rappers eTHEKWIN afisa ukungi bona ngiwa noma ngingalikhuluma kanjan iqiniso bazobheka into into abazofuna ukungi nemba ngayo bengibeke amabala bangikhulume ngithule ngyababuka.” He stressed that people expect him to do everything that Bathi Ngiyachoma hit-maker, Zakwe did. Duncan says the beef was long overdue.

But here are reasons why he is not supporting Zakwe’s music anymore. He says when he released his last album, Balaclava, Zakwe did promote it either. And secondly, he had already blocked him. In another post, Duncan denies a beef between him and Zakwe saying they are not into same things. “Sengiyivala...ain't no beef we just ain't on the same shit no more and i won't even write a verse elichashile elibheke kuyena but yena angaqhubeka.”

Both Zakwe and Duncan were unavailable for a comment.
