According to GospelOnDeBeatz who is currently in South Africa for a shoot, he got robbed of 7,000 Rands in his room in Maslow Hotel, South Africa, leaving him with literally nothing for the remainder of his stay in the country. He further added that he asked the hotel to release the CCTV footage of the incident, but they refused.
GospelOnDeBeatz who has been asked to move out of his hotel room because he is unable to pay for a room after his money was stolen, was checked into a room in the hotel where he unpacked all his things, putting his money in a drawer. He was however later moved to a different room at about 8pm yesterday, but he forgot to remove the money from the drawer as he moved. He then left the hotel for a shoot only to remember the money later on.
Upon remembering the money, he reported the incident to the hotel authorities and was granted access to his former room to search for the money but it was no longer in the drawer. However hotel record shows that someone used the key card to gain access into the room at about 10pm, two hours after he left the room. He has asked the hotel to check CCTV footage to know who went into the room but his request was denied. Instead, the hotel promised to carry out investigations later.
