Makhadzi Stands Strong Amid Controversy Over Skomota’s Appearance
In another development, Makhadzi stood up for fellow artist Skomota after Eugene Khoza criticized Skomota’s appearance at the recent South Africa Music Awards ceremony.
Khoza’s comments left many confused, and Makhadzi took to social media (formerly known as Twitter) to address this.
She urged people to celebrate what brings joy to others without trying to diminish anyone else’s shine. Makhadzi emphasized unity and rejected any form of tribalism, standing firm in her support for Skomota and advocating for inclusivity in the music industry.
“Ngatshivenda we say niluma nitshifhodzisa we celebrate what is making people happy. Imagine spending the whole 10minites emphasising that skomota don’t deserve a sport light where’s people are reliving their stresses by only whatching him dancing . Note that everyone sit everything for southa! We sun together wena Ugini you are tribalist and we won’t allow us to separate us tambelani kule . Iam here for skomota issue . No one must be questioned why a certain,” Makhadzi wrote.
