Ngizwe, who was once best friends with Khuzani, said he sent Khuzani’s money back because there was still unresolved issues between them.

“I returned his R5 000 and added R100 to make sure that the bank charges didn’t change the total. His money was not clean,” he alleged. 

“My father can be buried in a sack but I’m not taking money that is not clean.” 

Ngizwe’s father was buried at his home in Nkandla, KZN, on Sunday, 15 May.

The funeral service was attended by famous musicians such as Sjava.

Ngizwe and Khuzani are both from Nkandla and they were friends.

But they later started insulting each other on social media and through songs.

Khuzani said he didn’t want to talk much about his offering because he respected Ngizwe’s father and his family.

“I want to convey words of condolences to the Mchunu family about the loss of their father. 

“Regarding the offering I sent, I don’t want to talk about it in public,” said Khuzani.

“What I can say is that the offering was for the candles for the person who has died. I didn’t have any problem with him,” he said. 

He said according to the Zulu culture, the offering would be returned if the squabble involved the dead person and if that person had died without making peace with the person making the offering.
