A week after entertainment stable Thasa Group was accused of scamming young upcoming artist Follen, they have still not settled the E1 000  debt.

This was revealed by a dejected Follen, who is now contemplating legal action  against Thasa Group for allegedly refusing to pay him his dues.

A whatsapp message from Thasa Management Director Thabo Christian Sishwashwa to RnB crooner Tiyas reads, “the reason I can only make payments in Swaziland is because my card expired so the minimum cash I have will take me up until I come back to do replacements…

“I won’t be paying Lwandile; he will have to take me to court.”

Thasa Group was previously accused of conning a UK based Swazi music distributor, King Siso, who owns, an online music distribution platform.

Follen claimed to have approached the stable with the sole intention of doing a track with an artist signed under the stable but when all had been settled, Thasa then sang a different tune, making the young Follen lose faith in the deal.

Follen said he approached Thasa as he was mainly interested in collaborating with Tiyas.

Follen said what Thasa Group is doing was not fair as they have been ripping off artists and giving them false hope, thus destroying the industry and it was about time the law took its place.

He revealed that he had been waiting on Thasa for so long and Sishwashwa had been making empty promises.

Sishwashwa confirmed knowledge of the whatsapp messages, saying these were intended for Tiyas.

However, he said the whole issue will be resolved when he comes back to Swaziland, more especially because Follen had decided to take it further when he knows the terms.

“Follen was sent the vocals and also refunded 50 per cent of the amount he paid. I still reiterate that if he feels that he is owed for something that was actually done he can take me to court,” he said.
