Sho Madjozi shades artists rushing to hold online concerts
South African rapper Maya Christinah Xichavo Wegerif, aka Sho Madjozi, has called out artists and deejays who are conducting online concerts during this #StayHome period.
The singer has called out organizers of a recent gig in South Africa dubbed #QuarantineOnlineParty saying that they did not observe the social distancing measures.
According to the rapper, the organizers’ Scorpion Kings DJ Maphorisa & Kabza De Small, DJ Zinhle, Shimza, pH, Black Motion and Darque did not check on their own safety.
She says the concert was a good initiative but all the deejays failed to observe set measures since the event was somehow crowded and all deejays were using the same equipment.
“I was so impressed by the #QuarantineOnlineParty kanti the DJs and their friends were all touching the same equipment and grooving in one house. Social distancing means, 1. Staying 2 meters away from each other where possible. 2. Not going to restaurants bars and parties. 3. Not greeting with handshakes, hugs or kisses. It sucks but it’s our best chance of fighting” she said
The John Cena hitmaker also called out South African authorities saying that she was initially not tested for Covid-19 on flying back to South Africa from the United Kingdom.
Madjozi said on Twitter that South African authorities declined to test her as she showed no symptoms on arrival.
She narrated how she tried three times to get tested and lamented that the three-day wait for results after she was eventually tested, was exacerbating the spread.
“I tried for three days to get tested after I landed from the UK. They refused to test me everywhere because I showed no symptoms. Finally I managed to get a test on Tuesday. My negative result came back five days later,” tweeted Madjozi.
