granular facts about pentecost holiness church

THE International Pentecost Holiness Church (IPHC) was established by Reverend Frederick Samuel Modise in 1962. * His only son, Glayton, took over as The Comforter in 1998. * Glayton died in 2016. * Glayton had two wives: Marriam and Pearl Tafu, who was half his age. * Glayton and Marriam had two sons, the eldest being Tshepiso and the youngest Leonard. * Upon his death, Glayton didn’t seem to have a will and that triggered an internal war for his legacy and riches. * Between Gayton and the church, there were two bank accounts containing almost R1 billion when he died. * It is also understood that more millions stood in a vault in the church’s headquarters called Silo in Zuurbekom, west of Joburg. * Two years after Glaytin died, a man known as Michael Sandlana came forward…

chicco accuses impra of looting artists’ money

IT’S war between Dodo Monamedi, Independent Music Performance Rights Association (Impra) boss and music producer, Sello “Chicco” Twala. At the heart of their fight is an advanced payment of R10 million by the SABC to Impra. According to Chicco, the funds were paid to Impra two weeks ago, but have not been distributed to the artists. Said Chicco: “The money was meant for artists and musicians for needle time royalties, but Impra decided to divert it to COVID-19 projects.” In a damning letter, Chicco left no stones unturned, calling Dodo names and calling for his arrest. “As per my open letter, the SABC released an advanced payment of R10m to Impra for needle time royalties,” he said. “These (needle time royalties) are funds allocated for artists, including backing vocalists and everyone who contributed to that particular…

the samas are flawed!

IT seems the organisers of the South African Music Awards (Samas) don’t know how to stage a ceremony that’s free from controversy. Every year, the Recording Industry of South Africa (Risa), which is the custodian of the event, always gets under the skin of artists and music-lovers. This week, the same was true when artists from Limpopo weren’t nominated, despite their songs being on high rotation on many radio stations. Makhadzi, whose song Matorokisi was a runner for the Song of the Year title on many radio stations and Master KG’s Jerusalem have been snubbed by the Samas. This despite the songs being hits released last year, which has brought the judging process of the awards into question. An informant said Sho Madjozi’s name also didn’t appear on the list released on Wednesday. “Sho Madjozi…

FORMER Safa boss Mwelo Nonkonyana has cheated death. This as he narrowly escaped . . . AS HIS ROYAL HOME WAS RAVAGED BY A MYSTERIOUS FIRE LAST WEEK!
