South African musician DJ Maphorisa — real name Themba Sonnyboy Sekowe — felt the need to get something off his chest on X last night and that he did. Taking to the app which is formerly know as Twitter, he made a series of tweets regarding how he believes that he is the one who has opened doors for many other artists in the SA music industry.

Naturally there were those in the comment section who accused him of having an unnecessarily big ego. This however, did not stop him from making more claims.

While some agreed with him on certain aspects, others thought that he has gotten too big for his boots.

“Use that money sparingly, one day you must not be like Doctor Malinga begging on all social media please brother,” one person said while another added:

“Kodwa ndoda allow us to give you your flowers, don’t force it out on us. No need to remind us all the time, coz now when you remind us it means it wasn’t from a good place 🤷🏾‍♂️. Ivale mfana.”
