Mafikizolo defends Gugu Khathi

Mafikizo has come to Gugu Khathi’s defence after she received so much hate on social media for seemingly having a “bad attitude” at the SAMA24. 

During the 24th South African Music Awards ceremony, a video clip of DJ Tira’s wife Gugu giving hosts, Somizi Mhlongo, Mpho Popps and Dineo Ranaka a thumbs down for a joke they made about Mabala Noise went viral.

While some fans loved her reactions at the SAMAs, some social media users were not pleased with her reactions, saying she has a ‘bad attitude’.
