Mafikizolo defends Gugu Khathi against ‘bad attitude’ hate

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’.

Shortly after Gugu trended on social media for the wrong reasons, Mafikizolo’s Nhlanhla Nciza and Theo Kgosinkwe defended her in a video on Twitter. 

Nhlanhla said Gugu was in no way being disrespectful to South Africans or Mafikizolo, and the facial expressions she made is part of who she is.

“Gugu is an amazing and beautiful woman. She is a dear friend of mine and has been a part of the Mafikizolo family for years and last night. Gugu was nervous about going on stage and people don’t understand the way she speaks and some people took offence to it.”

DJ Tira also defended his wife on Twitter saying “She didnt like the “rest in peace Mabala Entertainment” joke. She is a great person who doesn’t appreciate negative vibes. Must we be laughing at Mabala now that they not focusing on music? (sic)”
