DJ Sbu’s Mofaya energy drink not SABS approved
The SABS has recently identified a number of companies that have violated its legislation.
JOHANNESBURG - The South African Bureau of Standards (SABS) has now confirmed that DJ Sbu's Mofaya energy drink was not approved by its officials and displays the statutory body's logo illegally.
The SABS has recently identified a number of companies that have violated its legislation by appending a mark of approval on their products without going through the proper certification process and one such company produces Mofaya.

The SABS' Frank Makamo said, "We want to put it categorically that the product was never brought to the SABS for any check, verification or tests, so that stamp was illegally fixed on that product."
DJ Sbu's eagerness to market his energy drink has previously resulted in the SABC charging him for every time he mentioned it on air and then sacking him.
He also got into a fight with Forbes, which has since been amicably settled, over a spoofed magazine cover.
The magazine's publisher sent out a public statement denying that the DJ, whose real name is Sibusiso Leope, had appeared on the cover of the magazine.
On the fake cover Leope appears holding a can of his locally manufactured energy drink.
