Arthur Mafokate & Family Reportedly Benefitted Over R4.5 Million From Government Tenders

Clearly, the controversies surrounding Arthur Mafokate’s life are not over just yet. The celebrated Kwaito musician is said to have benefitted over R4.5 million from government tenders, and South Africans are exasperated with the recent revelation and want him prosecuted.

Previously, their chief grouse against the 999 Records boss was that he had used funds from the National Lottery Commission (NLC) for personal use, including acquiring a mansion – allegations that he vehemently denied.

The musician had reportedly received tenders from the Gauteng Department of Sport, Arts, Culture and Recreation and the National Arts Council (NAC). In 2022, his daughter Owami Mafokate, through her company Queendom Media, benefitted over half a million from the same department.

In all, the Mafokate family reportedly benefitted R4.5 million from government tenders. When the news broke about the case, many South Africans were patently upset, with tweeps asking when the songster would be arrested.

At the time of writing, Mafokate had not addressed the case. Previously, when the other allegations surfaced online, he mostly shrugged things off, showing off his fam occasionally and enjoining young people to get back to the land as food would soon become scarce.

It remains to be seen how he would handle the latest controversy.
