Ntombela claimed that she woke up in the DJ’s bed one morning after being blacked out following a night of drinking, suggesting Tira might have sexually assaulted her.

The DJ has since served him with a letter from his legal team stating she has seven days to retract, or he will take the matter further. “Such conduct from you is causing serious and severe harm to our clients’ esteemed brand and reputation,” read the letter from Tira’s lawyers, Mkhize Attorneys. Ntombela was invited to Ukhozi FM’s breakfast show, Vuka Afrika Breakfast Show a few days later where she further spoke about the matter. “You were on Ukhozi FM radio station and again made serious, baseless and uninformed defamatory statements against our client,” read the legal letter.

Ntombela also made allegations of a payment and song registration dispute with Tira. “I’m gonna do anything that’s due to me. I’m not planning to expose you or to taint your name, well not intentionally,” wrote Ntombela in a direct message to Tira. She shared the screenshot of the message. The song in question is Imithandazo, which was released in 2017. The song features on the Afrotainment’s AfroSummer 17 compilation. Tira is the founder and owner of Afrotainment. Ntombela has not responded to communication regarding the matter.
