Simphiwe Dana Gets A Taste Of Her Own Medicine
Popular actress and Xhosa songstress Simphiwe Dana took to Twitter to voice her concerns about the impact of covid-19 which has left many destitute. In a tweet, Dana complained about the reopening of schools which went on without cost adjustments even though scores of people across the country were either retrenched or experienced salary cuts.
“@simphiwedana South Africa is so anti poor guys. People are losing houses and cars during a pandemic. Schools want their full fees even though they know we’re not working. Government has no plan. It’s heartbreaking really”
In an unexpected turn of events, tweeps attacked the singer who recently came out as a lesbian and accused her of being disingenuous. Not only was the Joko Ya Hao actress accused of appropriating struggles that do not affect her directly to appear woke, but Simphiwe was also dragged for filth by the streets as tweeps brought out receipts of her recent jab at a tweep for being unemployed.
