DJ Sbu is making headlines again, this time he is in trouble with one of Mzansi’s soccer clubs – Kaizer Chiefs. 2015 has seen Dj Sbu in the news a lot, from being fired to being arrested because of drunken driving to being in trouble with Forbes Africa . . . the list goes on.
And now, he’s in trouble with Amakhosi. This comes after DJ Sbu took a pic with 3 Amakhosi players, with them wearing his Mofaya T-Shirts, and holding a case of Mofaya. The problem is they were still wearing their club gear!
The players got fined by the club, and now Kaizer Chiefs is gunning for DJ Sbu.
Sunday World reports that the club are suing the DJ, for what they call ambush marketing, as he involved their club and used their players.
A source told the publication that Chiefs had called a meeting soon after the incident, to find a way to deal with the issue.
“She also told us the club had taken legal action against him and that our lawyers had met with his lawyers,” the source says.
“His blunder was that he apparently tweeted the club was supporting the drink and the players were using it,” the source adds.
This is not the first time that DJ Sbu is in trouble with his marketing tactics . . . in fact it’s the reason he was let go at Metro FM.
