Seh Calaz's Former Wife Demands Child Support1 year ago
Zimdancehall musician Seh Calaz, real name Tawanda Mumanyi, earns more than US$8 000 a month from his live shows, social media accounts and studio, his former wife has claimed.
Seh Calaz’s former wife, Moira Knight, recently approached the Harare Civil Court, seeking child support for their two-year-old son.
Through her lawyers, Moira alleged that the musician is not taking care of his child even though he makes substantial amounts of money. She said:
Seh Calaz is a celebrated musician who gets income, mostly from live shows.
In general, he realises between US$1 800 to US$2 000 per live show while on average he performs at a minimum of four functions per month.
In addition, he owns YALA studios, with two bases, one in Mbare National and another in Magaba, where a booking goes for US$40 per session.
On average he makes between US$400 to US$600 per month from the studios.
Seh Calaz also makes income from his Facebook and YouTube accounts with 482 000 followers and 43 400 subscribers, respectively.
To assist the court in ventilating the issues, Seh Calaz can bring proof of his earnings from the social media accounts, which can later be verified with the service providers.
Moira said she is not gainfully employed is surviving off her parents’ handouts.
She is asking for US$300 in rentals, electricity (US$120), Gas (US$45), Maid (US$100), Clothes (US$110) and Transport (US$100) per month.
Harare Magistrate Judith Taruvinga postponed the hearing to Friday to allow Moira to provide evidence to support her claims.
