On Wednesday morning, South Africans woke up to the news that Black Motion – made up of Thabo “Smol” Mabogwane and Bongani “Murdahbongz” Mohosana – had reportedly split.
The rumour was fuelled by Prince Kaybee who tweeted: “Still in disbelief that Black Motion is no more, the most decorated and astounding duo of our time”.

Following Prince Kaybee’s claims about Black Motion, Nota took to his Twitter to share his own thoughts.
In a series of tweets, he blamed Bongani Mohosana’s baby mama DJ Zinhle and dancer Zodwa Wabantu, who admitted to bedding Thabo Mabogwane, for the band’s split.
“We can’t allow toxic black women to take Black Motion from us… Don’t worry about it too much Kabelo. We just need a reunion show for Christmas & we’ll have it come hell or high water. As black men, we need to prove that no woman formed against us can come between us!”
“Black women have been possessed by the white man devil… He has brainwashed them, made them lose their morals & he is sexually exploiting them at scale so that white girls don’t grow up as sex slaves, unlike black girls who consider it an option that should be decriminalised. Hell!”
“I blame Zodwa Wabantu for breaking up Black Motion… Zodwa broke a spell that was put on the group when she slept with the MOTION of the group & then went on a podcast tour to brag about it. That’s when the woman DJ decided that she wanted all the BLACK to herself. Fear them!”

Celebrity blogger Musa Khawula retweeted the post, adding: “Remember when I told ya’ll that Black Motion is no more”.
Following his post, Fans accused DJ Zinhle of causing the split.
Many alleged that she convinced her baby daddy, Murdah Bongz, to leave the house music duo and concentrate on his solo career as a DJ. @Prince_SA3 said: "Heard that Zinhle told Bongz that he's better off without Thabo coz he's holding him back ngama drums."
@MsNtfulini commented: "It's sad but we can't do anything, Bongz chose to be a hand bag."
