Mahamutsa and Myeni are quite close, having been involved in township football. This has caused some football supporters to question whether or not they are broke. In edition 1306 of Soccer Laduma, Myeni touched on the matter, saying he and Mahamutsa do not have financial problems.

"I saw when Rooi (Mahamutsa) was trending because he was playing kasi football and people were saying he is broke. He is like a brother to me. But he said he is okay financially and I even heard him speaking to Andile (Ncube on radio). I am okay financially, there are no problems. And the fact that I came here was not based on money."
