A war has erupted between Mshoza’s sisters and her estranged hubby, Prince Mzwandile Dlamini, over the kwaito star’s royalties.

So dramatic was the dispute between the three that one of Mshoza’s sisters allegedly gave Dlamini with a hot klap and damaged his phone after a confrontation at the mortuary on Friday.

The sister was arrested for assault and damage to property but was later released.

The behind-the-scenes drama, according to those close to Mshoza’s family and the sisters, started when Mshoza’s older sister Thandi and her younger sister Seipati, went to the funeral parlour to wash her body and to get her death certificate but the parlour would only release the certificate to Dlamini.

This, the family member explained, was because it was discovered that though Mshoza, whose real name was Nomasonto Maswanganyi, was no longer with Dlamini, the couple had not officially divorced.

The funeral parlour called Dlamini to inform him that there were people who were asking for Mshoza’s death certificate. “He then rushed there. On his arrival a war of words ensued between him and Mshoza’s family members,” said the source close to the family.

Dlamini’s refusal to reimburse the family for all the expenses they had incurred when preparing for the funeral had apparently caused the altercation.
