Dr. Malinga has received flowers from the famous artist from Limpopo, King Monada. It is heartwarming to watch King Monada thanking Dr. Malinga for his role in fostering freedom and expressing praises for Dr. Malinga while he is still alive.
“You’ve helped me become more self-reliant by teaching me not to rely on other people so that I won’t be let down, and instead to cling to myself and God alone. I’m grateful. While you are motionless, you should gather all of your flowers.”
As detailing how the taxman seized and auctioned off Dr. Malinga’s furnishings in his presence, he left a lot of people with shattered hearts after he spoke about the incident. The singer and songwriter of the hit “Via Ollado” owed the South African Revenue Service (SARS) a total of R2.1 million in back taxes.
The musician disclosed to Sol Phenduka and MacG that he had paid R1 million toward his R2.1 million debt shortly after the Durban July in 2019. Due to the lack of incoming income from gigs, all attempts to collect the remaining balance were fruitless.
“In music, you depend on being called for your service,” he said, adding that he tried to reach out for assistance. “In music,” he said, “you depend on being called for your service.”
After two years, the SARS epidemic began. I gave Minister Nathi Mthethwa a call, and we had a conversation. He explained, “I was calling folks that I worked with, but they weren’t coming to my rescue.”
According to the musician, this was a difficult time in his life, and he was having financial difficulties as a result of COVID-19 regulations.
“SARS came. I gave Minister Nathi Mthethwa a call, and we had a conversation. When I am hungry, please don’t tell me that I have to help you plough the field; instead, just serve me some food. I am not badmouthing him in any way; rather, I am speaking about what took place. I called coworkers, but they didn’t come to my help when I needed them the most “he stated.
He proceeded by saying: “They removed everything that was there. If you don’t have a heart, you will laugh when you visit my house since it is quite funny. There is no one in my home, “he said.
Dr. Malinga has stated that he is responsible for paying the taxman R500,000. “The auction is quite uncomfortable. I went there, and I was there, and then I wanted to say “please is not like I don’t want to pay, and I don’t have money.” but I couldn’t find the words. I am not trending. I don’t have music. I am not getting booked for gigs, and I am unable to coerce other people into hiring me “he stated.
After the interview, followers rushed to his aid and contributed financial contributions to help pay his bill.
The past few days have been nothing short of a roller coaster ride for artist Dr. Malinga and his struggles with the South African Revenue Services (SARS) (SARS). However, in an effort to make amends, Dr. Malinga has now handed over a sizeable sum of money to SARS.
As a result of the announcement that the majority of Dr. Malinga’s assets were seized by the taxman, Dr. Malinga has had a difficult time dealing with the South African Revenue Services (SARS). However, as a result of his candid conversation with MacG on the Podcast and Chill show, Dr. Malinga has been given a glimmer of hope that everything may turn out okay in the end.
Mzansi has, without a doubt, been outraged by Dr. Malinga’s account of his struggling financially and his inability to maintain the lifestyle he had become accustomed to. Dr. Malinga has informed his followers on social media that he has already handed over R100,000 in taxes to the government as of the current date.
“Just paid 100k to SARS I really appreciate it, family. Merci et adieu “aforementioned Dr. Malinga
Since then, people on Twitter have defended Dr. Malinga while simultaneously challenging him about the reason he paid in the first place. They are drawing comparisons that other races do not even succumb to SARS, and they are asking why he should do so, based on the fact that his race and ethnicity are different.
“Why are you continuing to pay them… SARS is not pursuing people of other races since they are focused on black people. You, Wena, ought to have expressed your gratitude to those who contributed without disclosing the amounts that they gave. You should tuck your money away in the mattress and file for bankruptcy “published in Chris Excel
To tell you the truth, the South African Revenue Services is open to people of all racial and gender identities. They will continue to seize someone’s assets as long as their tax filings are not in order so that they can collect what is owed to them. While challenging the assertion that SARS solely goes after black people, one tweep went on to make an example out of his neighbor who owed SARS a sum of R3 million.
According to what Zoxo wrote, “No, they’re chasing all colors; they struck my neighbor with a $3 million bill, and he’s white.”
Some people on Twitter aren’t exactly jumping for joy over the fact that Dr. Malinga was able to resolve the financial issues he was having with SARS. They believe that Dr. Malinga has benefited greatly from the donations and other aid that he has received from his celebrity friends and fellow celebrities as a result of his prominence. If he hadn’t been such a famous musician, he never would have achieved the kind of success that he has right now.
“Good for you. There is a family who is on the verge of losing their home, but nobody will assist them. because they are not popular and have not been given the opportunity to seek for help on a stage. People are quick to offer assistance or sympathy when it is a celebrity, but they are unable to provide their neighbor with a meal or the funds necessary to look for work “the words of Thami Myeni
After he gave his tell-all interview, Dr. Malinga has since booked show appearances. In the month of October, he will be giving a performance at Makhadzi’s One Woman Show.
