Rita contacted her lawyers in order to sue Makhadzi for defaming her because they had last spoken in February this year, "Last time I spoke to her was in February. It was to my surprise when she posted threats on social media because of YouTube views. I then decided to delete the YouTube videos so that I can cut ties with her completely."

Rita slammed Makhadzi's claims of using all of her money saying that she has not received any money from her YouTube videos, claiming that she deleted the videos from the video sharing app YouTube which has garnered over 20 million views. Regarding her claims of not receiving any money for royalties, Rita told City Press that they paid the Matorokisi hit maker R430 000 in February.

"YouTube has not paid me a cent. I deleted the videos on Saturday morning after she sent threats on Facebook. If YouTube was giving me any money, I would not have deleted the videos. I would have made sure the videos garnered more views so that I could get more money. There was no money that is why I deleted them," Rita said to the publication.

Rita's lawyers are scared of their client's safety as Makhadzi's fans are threatening her life.
