Triple platinum selling artist Nkosinathi Mankayi who goes by Nathi recently opened up about his strained relationship with fellow singer and former friend Vusi Nova.
The pair had an undeniable bromance and were inseparable. Things turned sour last year when Nathi gave an interview saying, “Vusi does not own me.” He completely stopped working with the As’phelelanga singer.
In a recent episode of Behind The Label Nathi opened up about not being on the best terms with Muthaland Entertainment boss Lance Stehr who he felt “controlled” by.
He said the source of the breakdown of the friendship was because Vusi distanced himself after he parted ways with the label and never bothered to ask why he left.
“I chose to be independent but after that I had to do everything by myself. Anything that involved my new albums because I felt neglected. I then realized that the rumours that were circulating about Lance Stehr that he was abusing artists were true,” Nathi said.
The Nomvula hit maker said even though his relationship with Vusi is strained, he does not have beef with him.
