Media personality Tbo-Touch's company Touch HD and Marketing, which owns his popular digital radio station Touch HD, faces the risk of being liquidated.
Sunday World can reveal that Boomtown Events filed papers in the South Gauteng High Court last month to sequestrate Touch HD and Marketing for allegedly failing to foot their hospitality bill of almost R190000.
Boomtown has also served notice to employees of Touch HD and Marketing, the South African Revenue Service, and the Master of the High Court, among others, of their intention to wind up T-bo Touch's Company. If the media business of the former Metro FM DJ, whose real name is Thabo Molefe, does not file notice of intention to oppose the liquidation application, it will then be heard in court on March 12, where a default judgment may be given against his company.
According to court papers, Boomtown, which is based in Durban, entered into an agreement with Touch HD and Marketing, which was represented by Molefe, to provide hospitality services at the Durban July in 2017.
The services included the provision of food, drinks, bar facilities, lounge furniture and seating.
After the event, the company says it tried in vain to secure payment from Touch HD and Marketing.
"The applicant provided the respondent with an invoice, that till this day has not been settled," reads the court papers.
Boomtown's director Steward Alexander Scott said in his affidavit that they wrote a letter of demand to Touch HD and Marketing, which was served by the Sandton sheriff on the company on August 28 last year.
