Following reports that Mhango, who plays for the Orlando Pirates, was stopped from leaving the nightclub in the early hours of Saturday, the nightclub issued a statement.
Mhango reportedly bought drinks for strangers in the prominent club frequented by celebrities from Johannesburg and Pretoria, according to Sundayworld.
Mhango was detained for hours by Club Propaganda security officers who wanted the debt paid, according to the report, but after many stories, the striker conceded to having no money to pay the cost.
It went on to say that the player and the club manager reached a deal that prevented the police from being summoned, and that Mhango was later freed.
According to the report, Gabadinho did not play in Orlando Pirates' 3-1 victory over Chippa United on Saturday as a result of the incident.
However, Propaganda has denied the newspaper article, claiming that it is intended to destroy the club's image and Mhango's reputation as a "respectable patron."
“We have never encountered any negative problems from the above-mentioned visitor. Our partnership is robust and unbroken, and we look forward to continuing to host our elite guests and numerous visitors from all walks of life,” according to a statement on Propaganda's Facebook page.
Mark Williams, a former Kaizer Chiefs and Bafana Bafana striker, feels Orlando Pirates forward Tshegofatso Mabasa could be a consistent goal scorer for the Sea Robbers.
It hadn't been going well for Pirates against the Chilli Boys at Gqeberha on Saturday, with the hosts taking the lead in the 12th minute thanks to some poor defending by Phakamani Mahlambi.
In the 29th minute, Mabasa put Pirates back on track with a crisp finish in the box after latching onto a miscued attempt from teammate Vincent Pule.
Williams, who won the Afcon with Bafana Bafana in 1996, was impressed by Mabasa and believes the 24-year-old is just what the Pirates require up front.
Gabadinho Mhango, on the other hand, is regarded as the Pirates' main striker, having scored 16 league goals two seasons ago. Last season, the Malawian was only able to score five league goals in 22 games.
Mhango, according to Williams, is not well-suited to playing as a center target man and should be given more room to attack from the flanks. Mabasa should be the one to play through the middle.
