Dr Malinga left stranded again in Zimbabwe

South African musician Dr Malinga is reportedly stranded in Zimbabwe after he missed his flight back home. The musician had traveled to Gwanda for a gig, and he took to Twitter to announce that he had missed his flight, seeking help from fans.

However, his plea for assistance was met with sarcastic jokes and memes on social media, with some users suggesting that he walk across the border or hitchhike his way back to South Africa.

Dr Malinga’s missed flight is not the first time that he has faced financial difficulties. In a previous interview on Podcast and Chill with MacG, the musician opened up about his struggles with the South African Revenue Services (SARS), revealing that he owed over R500 000 in taxes. Despite fans and industry peers raising R100 000 to help him, it seems that Dr Malinga’s financial troubles are far from over.

Many social media users have been quick to mock the musician’s situation, with some even refusing to donate money to help him. Instead, they have suggested that he walk or hitchhike his way back to South Africa.

Some Twitter users have even gone as far as to post humorous suggestions like reporting the case to SAPS Tanzania and transferring it to SAPS Germany after landing. Others have joked about the musician’s past financial struggles and auctioned items.

This situation has sparked a debate among South Africans about the entertainment industry and how it treats its artists. Some have called for better financial support systems for artists, while others have argued that Dr Malinga should have been more responsible with his finances.

It remains unclear how Dr Malinga will return to South Africa or if he has received any assistance since his plea for help. The incident has highlighted the importance of financial management and planning for artists, especially in the entertainment industry, which can be unpredictable and volatile.

Dr Malinga Sets the Record Straight on Viral McLaren Video

South African musician, Dr Malinga, whose real name is Goodwill, has recently been in the spotlight for a viral video showing him in a McLaren sports car while playing his latest single “Ngiyabonga Nkosi.” The video sparked speculation that the “Hangover” hitmaker was being reckless with his monetary donations, buying expensive rides.

However, Dr Malinga has since set the record straight, saying that the car in the video is not his, but rather belongs to a friend. He also stated that he couldn’t afford such a car even if he wanted to, adding that he prefers larger vehicles.

“I never wrote that the car is mine. It’s my friend’s car, not my car. For now, I cannot afford such a car. Even if I had the money, I wouldn’t buy that car now. That car is too small for me, I love big cars. Buying a McLaren for me is the last resort,” he told TshisaLIVE.

The musician also clarified that the song in the video was not about the car, but rather a tribute to God. He assured his fans that he had put the money he received to good use, including paying off R100,000 to SARS (South African Revenue Service).

“The money that they donated helped a lot. I paid R100,000 to SARS, and now I am getting booked and getting the booking money. You don’t help people and expect them not to grow. Though some will say cars are not an investment, sometimes it’s an investment in your happiness.”

Dr Malinga also explained that he hasn’t purchased a car since 2016, and currently only owns a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter and another Sprinter.

“Some people are just acting like they invested. Those that are giving me backlash are the people that didn’t contribute at all. They just like fighting. And even if I bought it, sometimes when you donate, you donate for someone to grow, not to kill him,” he added.

Despite the controversy, Dr Malinga remains grateful to his fans for their support and promises to continue making music that inspires and uplifts them.
