Shaking things up once again is controversial former artist manager Nhlamulo “Nota” Baloyi, who is making social media rounds for his continued beef with Solomzi “Sol” Phenduka, a radio DJ and co-host on the infamous Podcast and Chill with MacG (Macgyver Mukwevho). 

After Phenduka rose to celebrity status on MacG's podcast, his beef with Baloyi began when he accepted a contract for a prime-time morning slot on Kaya FM’s 959 show with media personality Dineo Ranaka.

To no surprise, the opinionated and vocal Baloyi wasted no time and called Phenduka out on the new move, which he saw as a betrayal to Mukwevho.  

In an episode of Podcast and Chill earlier this year, Mukwevho finally opened up about why he had been blacklisted by YFM, and why the youth radio station refused to work with him.

“So I did the first show Friday, and then Saturday, there's this girl I met at the club, and this girl I've been wanting, like for months. The hottest thing you've ever seen. She comes to the club and she’s like, where are you going, I’m like, 'yeah, I got to go and do the show', and she says she’s coming with me. I asked her if she was going to give me some, and she’s like, I will think about it. 

“So, we go. I do my show, I do the first link, then we go outside. I thought I cued up the show so I've got like 30 minutes. I'm out there working my magic. Ah dog, within an hour or so, I lost track of time because she was playing hard to get. I got so many calls on my phone saying 'You have been off air since your last link'.” 

Unfortunately, this would become Mukwevho’s demise, and he was fired from the radio station for the second time. 

In the aftermath of Phenduka’s Kaya FM gig, fans have gone on to state how the move might have been a bad decision for Phenduka, who can’t quite seem to get a word in with fellow co-host Dineo Ranaka with one user even saying: 

"I only started listening to Kaya FM in the mornings because of Sol Phenduka, but I might stop listening because of Dineo Ranaka."


The beef continued when Phenduka addressed the altercation between himself, MacG and Baloyi on an episode of Nkululeko Victor Magoba’s show, Nkululeko n Cultr on YouTube on Monday.

During the episode. Phenduka said: 

I get the abuse from everybody else because they can’t reach me, but to get that kind of abuse from someone who has my f*****g number. He couldn’t even call and be like ‘Yo, what does this mean for the podcast, what does this mean for you.’ From my end, f**k Nota, I don’t rate him. He was someone I thought could be my friend, we were cool.

It seems Baloyi wasn’t done with Phenduka either, and in a series of tweets from Tuesday morning, Baloyi once again came for Phenduka, months after being blocked by him following the initial altercation. 

In one tweet, he said:  

“When Paramount asked MacG to do the Roast of Khanyi, he refused and told them to offer Sol Phenduka the bag instead of him. Sol took the bag then fumbled it. He proved once again he cannot be trusted. That’s why Dineo doesn’t let him speak. Simps and weak men trigger her gag reflexes.”

Nota was referring to Phenduka's recent performance on Comedy Central’s Roast of Khanyi Mbau, which Phenduka himself wasn’t too pleased with. Nota even called Phenduka a "low value man".

The verdict on whether or not these two will reach a peaceful agreement is still out.

But for now, it might just be better for Baloyi to focus on the lawsuit DJ Shimza has brought against him.
