Euphonik struggles to get Facebook page back after fall out with management company
Euphonik has no access to his Facebook DJ page.
“At CSA we have a passion for working with and promoting African talent across the continent and around the world. Welcoming Euphonik to the family is another step in our mission to create wide-reaching impact in the realms of entertainment and celebrity endorsement,” said Davin Phillips, executive director of CSA.
This was back in 2015 when their partnership began, but now the award-winning DJ and radio personality sits without access to his DJ page and 600 000 followers…
Oh, how things change!
Though the ‘page drama’ started this March while he was in the US, unable to access his page, the beginning of the turmoil can be traced back to April 2017 in what has been described in court papers as “a breakdown in the business relationship due to various failures by the respondent to comply with its obligations” and the agreement was terminated on June 5, 2017.
CSA’s lawyer Charl Coetzee told Weekend Argus that Nkosi owed the agency R12 million and breached an agreement, leading to the FB exile
CSA then brought the issue of a lien- the right to keep possession of property belonging to another person until debt has been repaid- before the court, however the judge only dealt with the Facebook matter.
Lee Binneman, Euphonik’s lawyer, said the lien exercised by CSA could not succeed in law.
“We are pleased with the judgment handed down and the order granted, effectively confirming the unlawfulness of the CSA’s actions. Unfortunately, this does not appear to be the end as CSA have indicated their intention to appeal. We are of the view that the judgment will and should stand and will make the necessary submissions to court in due course,” said Binneman.
Euphonik has in the mean-time re-branded himself a Themba, the techno DJ.
