In her explanation, the media personality says she accidentally went live earlier, pretending to go live with her dogs in a playful conversation with her partner while getting ready to start the day.  

“The phone fell off behind the dresser, tried to reach it, that’s where you hear the moving of furniture, clapping of the hands was for the dogs, to get them out the room. I’m so sorry I got you worried. I’m okay, promise.”  

Kganyago adds that she’s received numerous DMs from friends and family that wanted to check if she’s okay after the live.
