A Johannesburg businessman is hopping mad at Zola, real name Bonginkosi Dlamini, accusing the musician-turned-tv presenter of allegedly selling his dog for beer money.

Gift Mphokane told the Sowetan newspaper on Monday that he lent Zola his boerboel named Jozi so that the musician’s dog, Gusheshe, would have company.

But the businessman is mad at Zola for selling his dog, which he claims he bought it for R8,000.

Mphokane told the paper: “As far as I know the dog is with him because we had an agreement.”

“But I was told that he took my dog and sold it for beer money,” said Mphokane, adding that “I went to his studio and the guys there told me that he did (sell it).

The Ghetto Scandalous hitmaker, however, denies even selling the dog, saying that “I called SPCA three months ago and told them to come get this demon out of my house.”

Zola said he took the dog to SPCA because it started eating his dog’s food, saying it was expensive to feed both dogs.
