DJ SBU FAKES FORBES FRONT
DJ Sbu has added a whole new meaning to the phrase “fake it till you make it” with his fabricated Forbes Africa cover.
Sandton based Forbes Africa has had to set the record straight after Sibusiso Leope or DJ Sbu, as he is known, circulated an image of himself and his energy drink on a Photoshopped cover of Forbes Africa on social media.
“On the 20th of March 2015 Forbes Africa was made aware of a fictitious cover being shared on social media of Sibusiso Leope, also known as DJ Sbu. The cover features the entrepreneur and an endorsement of Mr. Leope’s locally manufactured energy drink. This release is to inform the public at large that the cover in question has been fabricated by the Mr. Leope and in no way represents or warrants an endorsement by Forbes Africa or its affiliates.”

This follows his suspension by Metro FM for punting his energy drink at the 2015 Metro FM awards, which the SABC plans to invoice for, along with any other airtime used on radio, to promote his energy drink.
