Nota’s Assets Take A Spin As DJ Shimza Is Set To Collect R350k Unpaid Damages

Controversial music executive Nhamulo Baloyi popularly known as Nota is currently trending as reports suggest that Ashley “DJ Shimza” Raphala has been granted a writ of execution against him.

After suing Nota for defamation of character, DJ Shimza was victorious in court in August last year.

This follows after Nota took to Twitter and accused Shimza of being “corrupt” and leveraging political “connections” to benefit from his alleged romantic involvement with Athi Geleba, the head of digital communications in the Presidency.

After the court ruling, Nota was ordered to pay R349,000, but he only settled a portion of the initial amount and pledged to pay the remaining balance on time.

However, it appears that he did not follow through on his promise.

DJ Shimza even took to Twitter and disclosed that Nota had not paid the full amount owed to him.

In a statement to the press, Nota once questioned how the amount billed at R289 000 was taxed at R349 000 when he should only pay R200 000 after deductions.

Baloyi said:

“Why would fees billed at R289 000 end up being taxed at R349 000 when it should only be R200 000 after deductions?”

City Press revealed that the charges included:

  • R528 for summons
  • R1 312 for consultation
  • R2 071 for 19 calls
  • R19 000 for the perusal of the trial bundle
  • R252 540 for DJ Shimza’s Advocate’s legal bills

Despite the confirmation from a YouTube channel that initially reported on the defamation of character news, DJ Shimza has yet to confirm whether he has received the writ of execution following the recent developments.


Nota has chosen not to acknowledge the new development in his defamation of character case, despite being tagged on Twitter regarding the matter.
