The singer behind the hit Rainbow by Black Motion, is accused of failing to pay for a Brazilian lace wig she bought at Joburg CBD in preparation for the South African Music Awards in April.
The singer allegedly sent her boyfriend to buy the 20 inch hair on April 18 while she was rehearsing at Sun City for the big night.
Thobile Sibisi, the owner of Thobile Hair Salon, claimed that the singer called her and ordered the R2900 wig and that was when her nightmare began.
“She’s not my usual client at all but she sounded desperate and I did my best to help her,” said Thobile.
Thobile said that Mazibuko told her that she was going to send her “boyfriend” who will come with R2000 to get the hair and she would deposit R900 into her bank account the following day. The guy arrived with only R1500. I called Xoli to tell her the money was short and she deposited R1000 into my account claiming she will deposit R900 the following day because she had exceeded her daily limit,” said Thobile.
Sibisi said that she gave the “boyfriend” the hair. “Later Xoli called me to say that her boyfriend sent her a picture of the wig and it looks 10 inch and accused me of robbing her. I told her to return the hair and I will give her back the money but she hasn’t done so which means she was happy with the hair. She must just pay me the balance of my money so that I can pay the person who organised the wig for me,” said Thobile.
