Amapiano artist Young Stunna and Kabza de Small’s record label have been served an R1 million lawsuit for failing to appear at a show he was paid for.

Piano Hub, owned by Kabza de Small and Young Stunna, was dragged to the Joburg High Court by Durban Base Entertainment. This was after Young Stunna failed to show up and perform in Durban for a music show he was paid for in 2022.

Events that led to the lawsuit

On 17 September, Young Stunna was set to perform in Durban KZN, but he did not make it. Mafutha Bheko Sokhela, the event promoter for Durban Base Entertainment, shared that the artist was paid R50 000 to appear at Durban Meets Jozi Festival in KZN.

His appearance fee was R40 000, and the other R10 000 was for accommodation and transport. Young Stunna agreed to show up before the day and signed a contract with the event planner.

The day before the event, the organizers reached out to Young Stunna to ensure he would show up, and his team said he would. However, on the day of the show, Young Stunna claimed he was not well, and would not show up. The singer claimed he had vocal problems, and the organizers gave them their doctor, but the musician did not attend the appointment.

The event organizers even gave the musician the option to show up and mime and lip sync, but he still did not want to perform.

A R1 million rand lawsuit

Sokhela shared that he was demanding a refund and suing Young Stunna for damages. The event’s promoter is currently in court, suing Young Stunna and his label for R1 million rand.

Kabza de Small and his partner DJ Maphorisa are notoriously known for snubbing events that they are paid for. Young Stunna is said to be following in his mentors’ footsteps and not in a good way.
