South African artist Makhadzi has revealed that she has been trying to contact Davido and Diamond Platinumz for five years, sending them more than 12 messages per year, but has not received any response from them.

She expressed an eagerness to collaborate with these two African superstars but the “MaGear” hitmaker hasn’t had any luck yet.

“I was going through my DMs, . Please don’t laugh, I have been DMNG @davido @diamondplatnumz saying hello my brother can we please work on something together. And no one replies 😂😂😂.

“It’s been 5 years now. Evry year I send more than 12 masages 😂😂😂. So you are not struggli,” wrote the award-winning artist.

The songbird’s fans took to the comments to offer solutions to the problem, while others said that she is a superstar in her own right and shouldn’t be begging the global stars for a collab.

@Sifiso_031za commented: “Find upcoming hard working artists from those countries new kids.”

Meanwhile, Makhadzi has also been at the top of X trends lists after suffering a wig malfunction at the recent ANC Mayihlome Rally Manifesto launch.

The star was at the event to perform and gave a testimonial on how the ANC-led government has changed her life.
