Still no love lost between Maggz and Bongani
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.
