“On the incident itself, I simply stated to Dr Malope’s manager that If the song is not done according to our plans, it will lose the whole idea of honouring her and we may decide not to release it as it will be a waste to take it for post-production.”
He also put on record that Busi, who was on stage around 19:30 was not part of the backstage conversations.
