She claimed the musician owed her R200000 after she worked with him to build his brand. She also claimed that she made the reality show happen. Manaka also managed former IdolsSA Season 9's top three finalist Sonke Mazibuko through her company Leraman Media.
The court last month found Manaka guilty of fraud and her husband guilty of money laundering.
According to the court papers seen by Sunday World, Manaka paid undisclosed millions of rands from Danone SA's bank account to her husband's company, Thabnaka Investments, when she was project manager at Danone in 2011.
The affidavit also stated that Manaka created fake service invoices pretending that her husband's company had rendered services to Danone.
