Recently South African actress-turned-DJ Thulisile ‘Thuli’ Phongolo took to her Instagram Stories and revealed the reason why she decided to delete all her posts on her Instagram.


The former Generations: The Legacy actress was all dolled up and waiting for the right time to wear her best outfit and hit the club. She explained to her viewers that she was booked to perform her set at around 02:00 and thought she’d catch up with her fans and online followers while she waited.

Phongolo had recently trended after she accused her boyfriend DJ Maphorisa—real name Themba Sonnyboy Sekowe of having physically assaulted her in one of their apartments in Sandton. According to City Press, in a statement, she was quoted as saying,

“He held me and took me to the balcony, and grabbed me aggressively by my neck.”

Soon after the news broke, people noticed that she had cleaned out her Instagram feed. Fans and her online followers could only assume what caused her to delete her posts was because of what had recently made headlines.

However, Phongolo has recently cleared all the speculations around the matter and shared that she and her team were working on rebranding her brand.

She explained that she felt as though her brand was stuck on potential and was not actually evolving the way she would like it to. She said that many pictures on her feed did not reflect the kind of work she was doing and showed more “pretty girl” pictures living a soft life.

Phongolo said she and her team decided to strip her feed and go back to the drawing board so that her brand would reflect where she was at and where she was headed.
