LOCAL comedienne and socialite, Mai Titi – real name Felistas Murata – has pleaded with people she is owing money to give her more time to pay up.

Mai Titi was left neck-deep in debt after her extravagant wedding with now-estranged husband, Tinashe Maphosa, gobbled up to US$100,000.

The couple’s marriage lasted barely four months.

Mai Titi claims she over-committed herself in terms of expenses as Maphosa had promised he would settle the debts after the wedding.

However, Maphosa did not fulfil his promises and allegedly stole US$30,000 from Mai Titi before disappearing

In a Facebook post Sunday, Mai Titi who is currently in Europe, pleaded with those she owes to stop using ghost accounts to attack her.

Some people who lent her money were starting to suspect that she may have run away into exile. However, she assured them she would pay up.
