Celeb Twitter Round-Up: Thuli Phongolo’s Booking Fee Will Shock You!

Actress/DJ Thuli Phongolo is a big star, no doubt about that. However, her booking fee seems to be even bigger, and it’s got tweeps a bit upset (read: totally outraged).

On Tuesday, 21 June, entertainment blogger/the people’s tweep Musa Khawula revealed that Phongolo is charging hefty fees for her deejaying services per hour:

Extras including airfare (nogal business class for her while her manager gets economy class!), transport and hotel accommodation are presumably separate from the overall R20 000 that she requires:

This revelation about Phongolo’s demands comes soon after she was accused of playing pre-recorded mixes at a recent gig held at a Midrand club:

As such, tweeps aren’t exactly impressed about the dollars she wants doled out to her, especially on a per-hour basis.

In fact, they were feeling every single emotion available:

@Bongani_Wale focused on why it’s a good thing that Phongolo is (supposedly) playing pre-recorded mixes:

Tweeps like @LotMabhuma and @TheQuiet_Guy1 reckoned Phongolo is playing mixes by DJ Maphorisa, whom she was rumoured to be dating (although she denied these claims):

Then there are tweeps like @teratoba and @JSMsithini, who think the money would be better spent on a Big Xhosa concert:

Some tweeps believe Phongolo’s demands aren’t that bad:

Other tweeps even tried to explain why this is so:

But their brethren doth protest much, particularly regarding Phongolo’s supposed lack of talent:

Some shady spice (or spicy shade?) was indeed spilled.

So, folks, is Phongolo wrong to make such exorbitant demands, or is this the norm for deejays everywhere? You decide!
