RAPPERS Zakwe and Duncan have smoked the peace pipe!
The friends who were once inseparable allegedly had a fall-out, but they are best buddies again.
They were spotted chatting at the KwaMashu Ink Festival last month and later performed together.
According to Zakwe, whose real name is Ntokozo Zakwe, he and Duncan, real name Sphamandla Mbambo, hadn’t spoken for close to two years.
“Duncan and I didn’t fight, we just stopped speaking. But when he saw me at the event, he approached me and we spoke. We realised how the whole thing was unhealthy for the both of us,” said Zakwe.
Our sister paper Sunday Sun had reported on the quarrel and sources close to both rappers said the beef started when Zakwe left recording company Siphethu Records, which he co-owned with Ngane Sikobi.
The source told Sunday Sun: “When Zakwe left the company, he wanted Duncan to leave as well because they were best friends, but Duncan didn’t and that’s where the problem started.”
When asked why they stopped speaking and performing together, Zakwe said: “I’ve been inviting Duncan to all my shows, but Ngane turned down the invites.”
Duncan had previously told Sunday Sun he never fought with Zakwe and everything was perfect between them.
He told Daily Sun: “Zakwe and I have been fine all along. People confuse situations. They thought just because Zakwe left Siphethu, he left our friendship but he didn’t. We never even fought.”
Ngane, who was said to be the reason for the quarrel, said: “I’m not involved in any beef, but if Zakwe and Duncan made peace, then I’m happy for them.”
