“DJ Sbu’s Unkempt Look Sparks Social Media Trolling Amidst Ongoing Royalty Allegations and Emotional Tributes to Zahara”
In recent weeks, the appearance of Mofaya founder DJ Sbu has become a hot topic on social media, with discussions revolving around his scruffy look and its potential connection to the unresolved royalty allegations involving him and former co-executive TK Nciza, as brought forth by the late singer Zahara.
A viral picture depicting DJ Sbu in a disheveled poncho and untidy dreadlocks during an episode of his podcast, “Hustler’s Corner,” featuring an interview with fellow podcasters MacG and Sol, fueled the Twitterati’s trolling spree.
While some users drew comparisons between DJ Sbu and American rappers Jay Z and J Cole, others speculated about a connection between Zahara’s ancestors and DJ Sbu’s appearance, suggesting a link to the ongoing feud with the “Loliwe” hitmaker.
The discord between Zahara and DJ Sbu dates back years, triggered by Zahara’s accusations of exploitation against DJ Sbu and TK Nciza, who were her record label executives at TS Records. Zahara claimed she did not receive royalties for her acclaimed debut album, “Loliwe,” despite its significant success.

In July of the previous year, DJ Sbu refuted these claims on Twitter, asserting that Zahara’s money had always gone to her. Zahara countered, accusing him of falsehoods and asserting that her music was being sold on digital platforms without her knowledge.
With Zahara’s recent passing, DJ Sbu has taken to his social pages to share fond memories of the singer, acknowledging the shared moments they had, from collaborating to winning awards together. Despite the revived allegations, DJ Sbu set the record straight during an interview on Cooking365, denying the accusations and expressing his grief over Zahara’s untimely death.
During the interview, DJ Sbu addressed the ongoing public scrutiny, stating, “People might be mad and might want to find somebody to blame. A lot of people are saying I’m to blame. Though I am not, having worked in the public eye for so long I understand. It’s OK, let’s be angry, let’s be sad. Let’s mourn.”
He further emphasized that despite the criticism, he is prepared to weather the storm and reiterated his commitment to not benefiting unfairly from anyone.
DJ Sbu reflected on his journey, stating, “I built myself from nothing, I’ve never sought an opportunity to benefit from someone or try to take somebody else’s money. When I met Zahara I was already rich, I could never take a single cent of Zahara’s money.”
