DJ Tira lashed out at a Durban-based business man, Nana Zondi, after an article was released on Sunday in Sunday Sun stating that he had initially discovered Babes Wodumo.
Tira stated in a lengthy Instagram post that the only thing Zondi did was introduce Babes Wodumo to the "right people".
“Yes you brought her to the Hawaii video, and that is about it!!! So I guess that is your way of discovering new talent.
"If you were seeking recognition you could have called the artist in question and find out if they appreciate your mini effort in the role you played as a model agent!!!" wrote Tira.
He added that Mampintsha had sleepless nights in studio converting the young musician from a model to an artist.
