We all know by now that the accident was a VW Drive Dry campaign, to raise awareness of the dangers of drunken drinking. learnt in a media statement Nomuzi confirmed it as a publicity stunt. The campaign was poorly received by people of Mzansi who were genuinely concerned about the rapper’s well being.

Disbelief turned to anger as #RoastNomuzi trended for hours over the weekend, with various insults hurled at Moozlie.

Gqom artist and dancer, Babes Wodumo took to her Instagram to give Moozlie a piece of her mind. The “Wololo” star recorded a video hurling insults at Moozlie, to the amusement of her followers.

Moozlie then went on a media campaign to explain her involvement in the campaign. In an interview with SABC News, she explained that she joined the campaign to make people realise the damage they can create by driving recklessly.

"So many people have lost their lives on our roads, and not only have people lost their lives but the family members that are left behind have been left to deal with all the consequences of other people's actions which I think is incredibly unfair and something needed to be done for those people."

She added that she had informed immediate family members about the campaign, and they were aware of the video before it was released.

"I told my mother, I told my father and sister, they were actually the only people who knew that I was going to be partaking in this campaign. They were the only people who knew what I was actually going through. It’s something that I know my family is proud I did and I'm proud of myself too.

Yikes. We don’t really think “proud” is the word Mzansi would use for you right now, Moozlie.
