“If we can lose a legend like Zola 7 right now celebrities will all be acting clever like they used to cook pap for him. No one is lifting him up now during difficult situation. The only person I saw last year lifting him up was Cass the rest are just clout chasers,” tweeted @RealMrumaDrive.

Pearl Thusi fired back at the tweet saying that the Gender-based Violence (GBV) claims made against the musician “made things tricky.”

“The awkward GBV moment kinda made things a bit tricky,” tweeted Pearl.
