Renowned South African rapper Khuli Chana has reportedly come under scrutiny by the South African Revenue Service (SARS) for allegedly owing over R1.1 million in unpaid taxes.
SARS has taken legal action against the artist, filing a judgment application in the high court in Johannesburg.

The musician also owes just under R19,000 in UIF, with interest and penalties contributing to the total amount. Furthermore, the court papers reveal an additional debt of R1,500 related to Chana’s skill development levy.
