Despite his struggles with SARS, Dr Malinga has declined assistance from Ambitiouz Entertainment. Despite being in financial trouble, Malinga responded to a quote tweet from the well-known record label on Twitter by politely declining their offer. Ambitiouz Entertainment posted that they could begin drafting Dr Malinga a contract. Malinga replied, “I still have the bottle you gave me for winning a SAMA Award. Thanks, bye.” After refusing to enter into any agreement with Ambitiouz Entertainment, Dr Malinga is once again the talk of the town.
South Africans’ response to Dr Malinga’s refusal to sign a contract with Ambitiouz Entertainment :
@khazamula_mnisi wrote: You’re broke, and South Africa just helped you get back on your feet. Now you want to join this Zama Zama group, which will result in tears.
@fw_milow shared: Please refrain from entertaining these clowns, as they are after your donations.
@Thato_Bodiba posted: Now that everyone has given back more than you had lost, SARS is furious and is sending Ambitiouz Entertainment to get the money.
@Mbebe replied,” I can smell R3700 approaching you.”
@Kingto commented, “You want to finish him? Thanks bye”
@Danielalso said, “SARS has taken Malinga’s money, and you want to retake it? Thanks, bye!”
@kingscelo also wrote: Want to rob Malinga similarly to how you robbed Emtee?
After discovering that the South African Revenue Service (Sars) had harshly treated Dr Malinga after failing to pay his taxes, his life was turned upside down. After failing to make his mortgage payment, Malinga was in the news for several days. It was later made known that SARS would seize and sell his property to recoup the money he owed. In a heartbreaking viral video, Dr Malinga sobbed as he talked about SARS taking his furniture. The gifted musician spoke candidly about the humiliation he experienced when SARS took possession of his furniture in an interview with Podcast and Chill host MacG.

Many South Africans do not want Dr Malinga to sign with the record label Ambitiouz Entertainment. Many artists who were previously signed to the brand have publicly stated that the label does not pay them enough for their work. They do not even give them their royalties. As a result, Dr Malinga graciously declined Ambitiouz Entertainment’s offer, and Mzanis were thrilled and proud of him.
