The Ngud’ saga continues! DJ Maphorisa is breathing fire as he took to Facebook to lash out at Hip Hop producer and recording artist, Makwa. Maphorisa claims that Makwa gained fame by copying his style, and lacks originality.
The saga started when Makwa exposed everyone associated with Rap Lyfe, mainly Kwesta and Nota Baloyi. What almost ended with a physical altercation, was documented for the whole country to see.
DJ Maphorisa entered the drama by exposing Kwesta for non-payment for his contribution to the success of Ngud’. He says the song changed everyone’s lives. Kwesta clarified what transpired, but Makwa called Maphorisa out for seeking attention.
A still very angry and hurt Makwa went on FB and exposed Maphorisa for not producing any of the hit music. He apparently according to Makwa renames the songs which were produced by other people.

Now, Makwa has angered Maphorisa and he has hit back. “Makwa shut da fk up. Your whole career was made after you copied my wave from Ngud’ by Kwesta and you created Spirit and etc…Fix yourself and fuen work hard for your s**t. Lazy boys all you do is just copy and paste. START YOUR OWN SH*T YOU disgusting. I hope you stopped drinking lean mxm I’m disappointed,” he lashed out.
He even added that he helped Makwa when he had nothing, by letting him sleep on his couch. But in those 3 days, he claims Makwa was copying him. He then warned others and said, “Make peace with me or I will forever distract you with my success. You can’t hate the winning team, learn from me it’s easy.”
Maphorisa had said after Kwesta received his millions for Ngud’ he did not bother coming back to him and pay him at least R50 000 just to show his appreciation. He also claims to have created a wave which fused House music with kwaito on a hip hop single, but Makwa stole his wave and produced Spirit.
“He came to my house you know, Kwesta is there, Nota is there. I like to work with people we are vibing.” Said Phori. “So we did three songs. We did Ngud, Mayibabo with OkMalumKoolkat and we did this other Gqom Trap song with Busiswa. When Ngud came out – I produced it. There is only one problem, when someone does something nice in your life, you have to appreciate it. After the track, Kwesta was Kwesta but after Ngud things changed. After you make all those millions why don’t you come back to me and give at least R20 000 to show appreciation.”
Makwa is not afraid of calling people out and he even outed Maphorisa for being an opportunist. He was a guest on the Sobering Podcast and he said, “Obvious you know Maphorisa, he is a serious opportunist. We clashed at some point over why we didn’t involve him on the track Spirit,” said Makwa in Part. He also claimed that Mayibabo was not produced by Phori. He made it in his grandmother’s backroom.
