Sobabili hitmaker, DJ Bongz has announced his departure from Mabala Noise Entertainment – a label he co-founded with politician Reggie Nkabinde. The prolific disc jockey is moving on to pastures new having started his own imprint – Gwara Gwara Entertainment.
DJ Bongz initially took to social media to make the announcement which came as a shock to many industry watchers.
However, as Lindo Buthelezi the manager at Gwara Gwara Entertainment explained, DJ Bongz was schemed out of running and control of the set-up. He says Bongz then became reduced to an ordinary artist but has chosen to start his own outfit without any bad blood because of the friendship that exists.
In his words:
“DJ Bongz has established Gwara Gwara entertainment and resigned from Mabala Noise to pursue his dreams the way he wanted to. There is no bad blood between him and Mabala or governor (Reggie Nkabinde), in fact he left for the sake of their friendship,” he said.
He further went on to reveal the exciting plans ahead for DJ Bongz which will not only involve making music; but also branching into events as well.
“Just as Bongz started Mabala, he has taken on a new challenge and started Gwara Gwara entertainment which he will release music from and branch out into handling events as well. He wants to be able to do things his own way and people can expect great things from him,” Lindo emphasized.
Mabala Noise spokesperson Mhlo Gumede has said the outfit will respond in the form of an official statement.
We can only wish DJ Bongz whose real name is Bongani Dlamini the best on the path and journey ahead.
