Pro­moter sings blues to the tune of R230 000

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - PEOPLE - Candice Bai­ley

CON­TRO­VER­SIAL Jo­han­nes­burg con­cert pro­moter Mor­ris Rhoda is in trou­ble again. This time, he al­legedly owes a mu­sic in­stru­ment sup­plier R165 000 and a tech­ni­cal sup­plier R65 000 for the lu­cra­tive Women’s Day con­cert last week­end.

Rhoda was in the news in the past in con­nec­tion with in­ter­na­tional con­certs which went wrong.

Lau­ryn Hill’s per­for­mance in Jo­han­nes­burg be­gan only at 3am and Amer­i­can R&B singer Keith Sweat was al­legedly never paid for his con­cert.

The Women’s Day con­cert at the Coca-Cola Dome in North­gate was sup­posed to fea­ture US R&B stars Kenny Lat­ti­more, An­thony Hamil­ton and Johnny Gill. Not only did Gill not pitch for the con­cert, but Rhoda has now al­legedly failed to pay in­stru­ment sup­plier Rafael Madeira the R165 000 owed to him. Tech­ni­cal equip­ment sup­plier Mark de Klerk, of Sound Cor­po­ra­tion, is al­legedly owed R65 000.
