It seemed like patrons were trying to block him from entering the venue. Speaking to TshisaLIVE, a staff member told the publication that the musician was not kicked out, but there was a commotion at the venue on Saturday night.

“Mampintsha was not booked to perform here but he did arrive in his personal capacity. When he arrived some people started whistling, chanting and pushing him around but there was no violence. He (Mampintsha) was not kicked out of the venue and went to a separate lounge where he had a few drinks and then left.” – A staff member who did not want to be named told TshisaLIVE.

The incident comes hours after Mampintsha issued a public apology on Instagram.


“South Africa, I’m sorry! I know many of you don’t want to hear it kodwa from the bottom of my heart, I would like to send my deepest and humblest apologies.”

“I am in a dark place and kunzima but I have to face this like a man.”

“To Bongekile Simelane and the whole Simelane family, to our leaders and in this country, to my colleagues and fellow industry artists, to the general public, once more especially to our women, to my family and God, I’d like to say I’m really sorry and regret everything. Please forgive me.” – he said in a statement.

Earlier this month, Mampintsha sparked outrage across the country after a video of him beating his estranged girlfriend Babes Wodumo went viral. Mandla was then arrested and released on R2000 bail and the case was postponed to the 15 of May.
