In September 2021. TxC was contacted by a Zimbabwean based promoter. Mr Rimo Jackson, requesting an appearance by TxC in Zimbabwe for on exclusive and private event with “Very Important Personalities”. Sadly, what later transpired led to on unfortunate state of events which made us feel unsafe and insecure due to a failure to deliver as contracted with the said promoter.

TxC was fortunate to once again be requested to appear at the Yoyo World Fest in Harare on the 12,, of August 2022, to which the invitation we honoured however prior to appearing at the Yoyo World Fest the promoter in question came to our hotel accompanied by a mod to demand re-payment of what he termed “wasted costs” at the October 2021 event. amounting to more than R500 000: notwithstanding that the promoter had committed to paying an amount of only R40 000 a day for the event.

The amapiano djs revealed that they were not arrested but held against their will by Dj Rimo and his associates.

We confirm that at no point were we arrested os reported by some tabloids and social media outlets but held against our will by the promoter and his associates. We voluntarily went to the police station to give statement. where after we went bock to our hotel as we had on early flight bock to South Africa.

They argued that they were held at ransom as Dj Rimo demanded they pay him back a minimum of R200k .TxC said their car was barricaded and they threatened to confiscate their passports if they don’t pay up.

The hotel staff, our road manager and ourselves were practically held at ransom while the promoter demanded a minimum of R200 00 to release us and remove the car barricades they had placed outside the hotel, falling which they threatened to have our passports confiscated and held against our will.
