Mzansi’s favourite entertainer Makhadzi just returned from her tour and is living it up on vacation. But Botswana may still be reeling from the mess she left behind from her latest concert.
Both Makhadzi and Zodwa Wabantu were scheduled to perform at an event in Botswana, but it all got ugly really quickly. Zodwa cancelled on short notice when she was taken ill, and Makhadzi’s performance was delayed… or so it seemed.
The two performers went online to offer their apologies to their fans in Botswana for the mixup, but each of them gave a different explanation for the chaos that resulted. According to Makhadzi, it was because she was late. Zodwa, on the other hand, thought it was all because she cancelled.
But Mmegi Online now reports that the mess was caused by the event organisers and security personnel, when they sprayed attendees with pepper spray, obviously angering them. There was a lot of damage done to property, and many fans are even thought to have sustained injuries in a mini stampede.
Makhadzi is unbothered, though. She finished her performance and immediately returned home, where she is now relaxing and living her best life. She recently shared that she was checked into the Meropa Hotel and Casino in Polokwane.
The location is an upper 3- star hotel, which is a surprising choice for a celebrity of Makhadzi’s calibre. I mean, she just signed a R120 Million deal not too long ago. Why wouldn’t she spring for a prime 5-star destination? But it also has a casino, so will she treat herself to a little gambling?
Even so, that is not to say that the hotel is not breathtakingly gorgeous and aspirational. A room costs between ZAR 1,264 to ZAR 2,298 per person, per night, which would be a dream for the average South African.
