Ambitiouz Entertainment former workers are levelling accusations against the record label’s CEO, Kgosi Mahumapelo. Despite winning a CCMA case filed against him last year, the disgruntled employees claim they have not received their due payments.

According to ZiMoja, in May of the previous year, these dissatisfied individuals approached the CCMA. They filed grievances against Mahumapelo for non-payment of salaries covering months of service.

Thando Galebosiwe, one of the affected employees, shared the financial strain she endured due to the unpaid wages. Galebosiwe revealed that she had to deplete her savings, emphasizing the ongoing emotional toll despite securing a new job. “I want him to pay me my money; dealing with the court case has been traumatic,” she expressed. Galebosiwe, owed almost R100K by the music mogul, alleged Mahumapelo’s non-compliance with a court order mandating compensation for the unpaid months.

Another former employee, Kgothatso Mokgohlwa, disclosed that Mahumapelo had committed to settling payments in July of the previous year after losing the case. However, Mokgohlwa claimed Mahumapelo has since avoided their attempts at communication. In WhatsApp messages seen by ZiMoja, Kgothatso expressed financial distress, mentioning bounced debit orders, but received no response.

When approached for comment, Mahumapelo stated, “I cannot comment officially on this matter because all those employees signed contracts, which are confidential. I cannot breach the employer/employee confidentiality.”
