After a photographer released photos of Makhadzi performing her heart out on stage, all trolls could focus on was the colour of her skin. Makhadzi was ridiculed to the point where she took to her social media to apologise for the state of her body. Loyal fans came to her defence to call out the bullies and reassuring her that she has nothing to be ashamed of.
The South African reports that the photos were circulated by a photographer who was attempting to promote his own brand but did nothing but humiliate her instead.
"I would like to apologise to all my fans if only if you really disappointed about these pictures, there were lots of beautiful pictures that a cameraman could have posted, but he chose to post this to promote his brand but forgetting the damage he is doing to my soul. I know I am strong and all this will pass. Unfortunately, I cannot change my inner part. I am like this and I am proud"
