CHART topping musician Holy Ten finds himself at the centre of attraction for the wrong reasons as he is allegedly failing to honour his side of agreement in performing in Beitbridge.

Initially the artiste who is basking on success of his collaboration with Bulawayo’s Kimberly Richards was supposed to perform at Pagomba Cafe on April 6 before cancelling the gig.

According to close sources in his camp, Holy Ten bags a range of USD$1500 to USD$2000 per gig depending on the event and location.

The organiser of the Beitbridge gig, Palace Entertainment publicist, DJ Keitho, said there were distraught with the behavior of Holy Ten for failing to fulfill the mutual understanding.

“We paid Holy Ten US$1000 as a deposit after he charged us US$2000 but he has failed to fulfill the deal. He has cited security concerns in appearing for the show although we have assured him of our best interests in the clientele we deal with.

“We have hosted South Africa’s big shot Nkosazana Daughter at the venue and other big artistes because of our organised setup and there have been no complaints. All we wish for is for him to be a true artiste when it comes to this matters as we advertise in time and if we don’t fulfill that our clients won’t trust us,” said DJ Keitho.

When contacted for comment on Tuesday evening, Holy Ten’s manager Tinashe Wesley told this publication to call on Wednesday morning before his phone went unanswered.
