The musician has been catching a lot of smoke online for his pro-vaccine stance. Many felt that the star was being paid to promote the vaccine.
The muso added:
“If anyone can bring proof that I got paid for tweeting about the vaccine I will pay you R10, 000 plus all the money you say got as this is a "paid promo". Sometimes in life you must just do what you think is right and forget about the noise.”
The reactions to his vaccination post were divided.
Mzansi reacts to DJ Tira getting his final jab
“Imagine taking a vaccine becos Dj tira says so.”
“Dankie @DJTira. I am fully vaccinated & feel perfectly fine.”
“No one is anti-vax, no theories too. People are fighting for the right to choose to vaccinate or not, as you have done and demonstrated in your video. You chose to vaccinate, no one forced you or threatened your livelihood or freedoms for you to do it.”
“I’d trust this vaccine if people got vaccinated and kept quiet not act like they doing it for us the unvaccinated.”
“You're not fully vaccinated. There's endless booster shots you still have to take. Jovile Jovile Baba!”
