After celebrating her 26th birthday in style and bagging two DStv Mzansi Choice Awards, Makhadzi headed to Swaziland for an energetic performance but sadly, it did not end on a high note. 

While performing her hit track Ghanama, the 25-year-old usually falls to the ground as part of her dance routine but during this particular performance, she fell and hit her head. The crowd gasped and one of her dancers rushed to see if she was okay. 

In a now-deleted Facebook post, Makhadzi wrote: “I had a mini incident at a performance”.

“I, unfortunately, had to cancel all my shows for the day to rest my head.”



Speaking to DailySun, Makhadzi’s record label, Open Mic Productions, said the singer did not realise there was not enough space behind her to throw herself to the floor as part of her performance. 

“She was medically examined and she’s now fine. She is back at work,” said Nkateko Maluleke. 

Fans wished Makhadzi a speedy recovery after the incident and although she has not posted on social media since her record label assures fans that she is doing well.
