DJ Shimza found himself in the middle of a massive social media storm over the weekend after he asked a fan to stop “harassing” him.  

The hitmaker had Twitter DEEP in the feels when he responded to DJ Ceega Wa Meropa’s request to feature on his Channel O lockdown live gigs by telling the upcoming DJ he should stop hounding him. 

“You need to stop harassing me, it’s annoying,” Shimza said, adding that the DJ was always blowing up his mentions with requests. 

Social media users slammed Shimza for being “rude” and called for the muso to be boycotted. 

As the hashtag #ShimzaMustFall topped the Twitter trends list, Shimza apologised for his comments. 


“I apologise for snapping at you, especially because I am a hustler myself. I should have been more understanding. It was in no way a personal attack or anything of the sort. 

“Once again guys, I apologise to everyone I have offended. I must always remember to hold myself to a higher standard. Marumo fatse,” he wrote. 

Let’s all stand together during these trying times Mzansi. 

There are 2 415 confirmed cases of Covid-19 and 27 deaths in Mzansi. 

Gauteng health MEC Bandile Masuku remains hopeful the country will overcome the Covid-19 pandemic with limited casualties. 

“We believe we can overcome, and will overcome with not many casualties,” Masuku said during the handover of personal protective equipment (PPE) in Sandton on Tuesday. 

The Bank of China donated 30,000 PPE units to the department to boost the fight against the coronavirus. 

“We are hoping this equipment will add to what we are already busy with in terms of procuring and creating enough stock for our health-care workers.

“We are very appreciative of this gesture. We hope to get more and to share insights about how we deal with and treat patients who have Covid-19,” said Masuku.

Let’s all continue to stay home and safe. These are trying times, but we will conquer them if we all work with the government.
