Malawian dance-hall sensational Blasto risks being arrested allegedly stealing R3, 000 (about K135, 000) from his South-African-based friend Timothy Nkhoma who has since threatened to deal with the artist.
According to claims Nkhoma has been making on social media, the “Rebel” hit-maker shown his rebellion behavior after a he swindled his friend’s money whilst South Africa.
“This boy had no money for transport in Jozi when he was going to perform at Morgan Heritage show so he asked me to borrow him a R1000 as a brother I gave him my pin code withdraw what he wanted and then he took R3000 telling me he did it by mistake,” wrote Nkhoma on Blasto’s Facebook page.
“Then his phone was off and the next morning he said I am in Malawi. Now am asking for my money he is talking shit”.
Nkhoma has since threatened to deal with Blasto, labeling him fake and thieving artist.
“if you think you are a gangster ukunama. You cannot rob me like that. Just be counting down am will be coming next week. You are a fake artist wakuba. Wanted to bring in police to take you down at the stage during the Morgan Heritage show but people said “don’t do that”. So I will teach you a big lesson when I come. You will stop robbing people,” threatened Nkhoma.
When asked why he chose to post the issue on social media late alone on Blasto’s FB account, Nkhoma argued that he was left with no choice as the artist has been ignoring all his messages.
When contacted, Blasto said the story was about his private life and not public issue.
“We will find our way to sort this thing out, I just don’t want to talk about it,” Blasto said.
Blasto rose to fame with songs like Jah Nuh Sleep, My Business and Faith.
