KWAITO legend Arthur Mafokate has been acquitted on assault charges, pressed by ex-girlfriend and singer, Busisiwe ‘Cici’ Twala. The legal battle has affected his reputation and economic situation.
“It (legal battle) has affected his reputation and economic situation but he will have to finally adjust his life and rebuild his career in order to get his supporters back,” – Daniel Nakeng, Arthur’s lawyer.
Speaking with MGOSI.co.za through his lawyer Daniel, Arthur says he has mixed feelings as a lot of time and dignity has been taken away from him and it would take many years to rebuild.
“We are all aware of the consequences relating to big public figures like him in situations like these, and it is going to take years to rebuild that brand that took over two decades to build,” says Daniel.
When MGOSI.co.za asked if they are going to take legal action in pursuit of remedies for reputational damage, his lawyer says, “These are other legal matters we are not able to discuss with the media at the present moment”.
