This suggests that despite the controversy surrounding sponsorships, some arrangements have been made to ensure that the participants are compensated.
According to the promotional poster, tickets for this much-anticipated event are being sold via Computicket for R250. This indicates that preparations for the event are underway and fans can secure their spots to witness this unique showdown between Zodwa Wabantu vs Khanyi Mbau.
