Twitter users pray for ‘2023 without Nota’ after his account gets suspended

It is unclear exactly which tweet got Nota suspended but it comes shortly after he launched yet another verbal attack on Berita. 

Nota Baloyi’s Twitter account has been suspended and a large number of Twitter users are celebrating the move as a win. 

It is unclear exactly which tweet got the former artist manager’s account suspended but the suspension comes shortly after he launched yet another verbal attack on his estranged wife, Berita. 

Nota once again called the singer homeless and stated that she would rather be homeless than “come home” and spend Christmas with him. 

His suspension also comes after he targeted yet another female influencer, this time making fun of Paballo Kgware’s appearance. 

He was instantly met with resistance by Kgware’s followers and other Twitter users who sought to teach him that commenting on someone’s appearance was wrong.

In addition to celebrating his Twitter suspension, some users of the platform noted, with concern, the nature of his posts. 

Who is Nota?

Baloyi is most popularly known as rapper Kwesta’s former manager and business partner. Until 2020, he worked mostly behind the scenes in the South African music industry, even holding a position as the director of The Orchard South Africa – a subsidiary of Sony Music Entertainment.

He has even held positions at companies like the Southern African Music Rights Organisation (Samro) South Africa’s copyright asset management society. 

He was previously married to Afrosoul singer Berita who confirmed that she was leaving him in July 2022. 

“The day I decided to leave my marriage. Is the day I had to choose between being married and being alive.”

She added that she had been quiet about the matter out of respect for the families involved, alluding to the fact that their respective families may have been discussing the issue. 

“Morning tweeps. I was off Twitter for a couple of days. I only became aware of the statements made by Nhlamulo “Nota” last night. I would like to, first of all, clear the air by being transparent to you all. I have been quiet because there is families involved in this situation.

I am no longer married to Nhlamulo “Nota” Baloyi. I left our marital home on Thursday the 13 of January 2022. As it stands we are currently separated.

I have been quiet because my [safety] has been a huge concern. This man is extremely irresponsible, reckless and unruly. He simply does not listen to anyone. I do not condone his actions. I cannot even begin to count the numerous times he has erred in his speech,” wrote Berita.

Since then, he has been in denial about the end of his marriage, often goading his wife into returning “home” via social media.
