Entertainment round-up: More drama for DJ Sbu
DJ Sbu and his Mofaya drink
Radio personality and businessperson DJ Sbu (Sibusiso Leope), who was recently in hot water with Forbes Africa over the publication’s fake cover, which he shared on social media, now has another brand distancing itself from his energy drink, Mofaya. Eyewitness News reported that the South African Bureau of Standards (SABS) confirmed that Leope’s energy drink was not approved by “its officials and displays the statutory body’s logo illegally”.
EWN quoted SABS’ Frank Makamo as saying, “It is being handled by the legal department and my legal team has met with the company in question.” The Mofaya drama began when the DJ promoted his drink on stage during the Metro FM Music awards on February 28.
He was fired from Metro FM for the stunt he pulled.
