Promoter sings blues to the tune of R230 000
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.
