In a series of tweets, outspoken music executive Nota Baloyi revealed that DJ Sumbody was living a double life.
Nota hinted that the Amapiano hitmaker was in the drug game and warned up-and-coming musicians to watch the company that they keep. He said:
Monate Mpolaye… We lost my brother Citi Lyts to these streets this year & there’s no justice in the streets. I pray the young impressionable ones learn that music & drugs don’t mix. Watch the company you keep because your talent is your ticket to the big time away from big crime!
He added that DJ Sumbody was killed by his opps which is slang for enemies.
“Khuli Chana got shot by the cops… DJ Sumbody got shot by his opps!”, Nota tweeted.
Nota Baloyi also hinted that the producer was hanging out with gangsters who eventually killed him. He tweeted:
It looks cool hanging out with the gangsters but those boys are murderers… Cold-hearted killers that leave (you) dead in the streets then go to your funeral demanding to speak. Consoling your mother like they aren’t the reason for her tears & why she’ll never get justice in 20 years!💔
Nota referenced Khuli Chana’s shooting for context and said DJ Sumbody should have focused on the music instead of trying to live a soft life by any means. He said:
Khuli Chana miraculously survived Police Brutality, DJ Sumbody succumbed to the street’s brutality… Should’ve focussed on the music but the soft life was too tempting, now it’s a hard pill to swallow. There are so many opportunities in life don’t lose it all impressing enemies!
He ended his series of tweets by advising musicians that it is better to be a struggling artist than a dead one.
