When a tweep responded, asking if that was all she was going to say, she replied: “Absolutely indeed yes that is all because this is the same space that will give you a ‘Tikoloshe raped a parrot headline’ respect me, please. I am BUSY!”

On Friday, however, Msaki shared that she will be taking a break from social media and music.

The Ubomi Abumanga hitmaker still maintained that she will not be defending herself from any claims, saying being in the limelight has made her a “victim to a violation of privacy of a complete twisting of the truth”.

“I hold words in such high regard because I believe in their ability to heal , edify , encourage. Places that use words to intentionally break, lie, distort , sensationalise offend my very essence.”

The songstress and songwriter also implored her fans to not allow trolls to get to them but to rather be kind to them. She used former music exec, Nota Baloyi; influencer, Chris Excel; and celeb basher, Musa Khawula as examples.

“Make them null and void. We need compassion, and care and patience for each other. Things are getting worser.”

In conclusion she said her goodbyes and told her fans she will honour books until March and all the details will be made available on Patreon.

Msaki and Smash Afrika — real name Afrika Mdutyulwa — were accused of cheating on their respective spouses.

According to Sunday World, a relative of Kefiloe Chuene — who is married to Smash Afrika — revealed that the 5FM DJ has been cheating.

The couple got married in a traditional wedding in 2020 and have one child together. Msaki is also reportedly married with three children.

Smash Afrika is accused of calling his wife a “gold digger,” as he has allegedly said that the Chuene family tricked him into marrying their daughter.

Kefiloe has allegedly found pictures of the rumoured couple and a letter from the Ubomi Abumanga hitmaker in which she allegedly confesses her undying love for the presenter.

However, the source says Msaki has denied the affair.

“Kefiloe told us that Msaki denied dating Smash Afrika and said she misunderstood their relationship because there was nothing going on between them,” said the relative.

The Massive Music host, on the other hand, is said to have admitted to the affair.

“He told her, unlike her, Msaki makes him happy and gives him peace,” the source added.

Smash Afrika has not yet addressed the allegations, while Kefiloe has said that a protection order is prohibiting her from speaking to the media
