Still no love lost be­tween Maggz and Bongani

Weekend Post (South Africa) - - NEWS - – Kyle Zeeman

IT’S been sev­eral years since Bongani Fassie and rap­per Gift “Maggz” Magubane had a fall­out, but the pair still seem­ingly can’t stand each other.

Speak­ing to Metro FM’s Mo Flava and Masech­aba Ndlovu this week‚ Maggz re­vealed that their re­la­tion­ship is “pretty much dead” now and even an at­tempt to make peace two years ago was an ab­so­lute flop.

“I meet this guy [Bongani] at a show in the East Rand. I was back­stage and he sees me but does not say any­thing. When I see him I think, ‘Cool! Let me go and say what’s up?’

“I even said to him, ‘Boy‚ what­ever hap­pened to us‚ hap­pened. It was a long time ago. But the one thing I cry about is that your tal­ent is not heard in the game. I don’t un­der­stand what you are do­ing. I wish you were here. Even if you are not do­ing mu­sic for us but you should be do­ing it for some­body else. Where are you?’ A month later he dropped Stretcher .”

Stretcher was Bongani’s at­tempt at a mu­sic mas­sacre‚ tak­ing shots at vir­tu­ally every­one in the in­dus­try. Over the course of a few min­utes, he went for AKA‚ Maggz‚ Cassper and even Sk­watta Kamp vet­eran Slik­our.

“I was like, no this guy is done. I am done with him‚” Maggz said.

The Vaye hit­maker’s luck with groups didn’t change be­cause a year later he left his la­bel Cash­time Life‚ and hinted that the com­pany was hin­der­ing his growth as an artist.
