After over six months of waiting and being given the run-around, Bonang Matheba’s former make-up artist, Muzi Zuma’s prayers have been answered and he’s been paid the R25,000 that was owed to him.
After revealing earlier this week that Muzi Zuma was still waiting for payment from the Bonang Matheba, DNA Brand Architects owner Sylvester Chauke has come out and paid the makeup artist himself.
Speaking the TshisaLIVE, Chauke stated that Zuma “is trying to build and grow his business” and “as a fellow black entrepreneur” he hates “seeing [black people] having to struggle”.
“I have decided to settle Muzi’s outstanding cost. I have the utmost respect for Muzi and his work and through DNA, we have done some great work. With this back and forth, at the core, is a young man who is trying to build and grow his business and I thought it important to settle the matter on his behalf.
“Moreover, as a fellow black entrepreneur, I hate seeing us having to struggle to be remunerated for services that we render and ill-treat each other sometimes. This is not how we should do business. We should grow each other instead.”
Posting on Twitter, Zuma confirmed that he had received payment and is glad to “close a horrible door”.
Thanks to @sylvesterchauke I can close a horrible door. Sylvester has made the payment of R25000 out of his pocket. I absolutely have no words, Thank You to everyone who helped make this possible, I am grateful to each & everyone. ❤❤❤
