Shwi noMtekhala are on the verge of splitting.

Cracks started to appear when Shwi, real name Mandla Xaba, performed alone at various events recently.

Zwelenduna Magubane, known as Mtekhala, instructed the group’s backing vocalists not to attend the events because he believed they were being short-changed with performance fees.

One of the main reasons Mtekhala is not happy is that their manager Bongani Manyathi made a deal with Sigingci Media to sell their music online during lockdown.


He felt undermined because he was not consulted but Shwi gave the manager the go ahead.

He believes there is money generated through that online deal but he’s not aware how much they have made.

Mtekhala confirmed to that there are differences between the backing singers.
