Lerato Kganyago has stood up for female deejays across the country and responded to Heavy K's statement, "Don't deejay like a woman, deejay like a man."
Heavy K is usually a laid-back type of guy who's only concern is music and making hits. But social media users were pretty upset with the Mzansi star following a statement he made during an interview on Metro FM on Thursday.
During his interview with Metro FM's Masechaba and Mo Flava, he was quoted saying: "Don't deejay like a woman, deejay like a man." Unfortunately it was just a line taken out of his more meaningful conversation, but his statement did not sit well with Black Twitter or DJ LKG.
Obviously upset, Lerato Kganyago took to Twitter to call Heavy K out for his sexist tweet. She wrote:
"Love Heavy K. But this is a very tacky quote!"
Check out her tweet below.
Heavy K later explained what he meant to say was he wanted to change people's perspective about male deejays being better than females. Check out his tweet below, which Lerato retweeted on her Twitter account.
Just over three weeks ago, Briefly.co.za reported that Lerato Kganyago is not afraid to say the things that others fear to say. She is all about open conversation and creating a dialogue over things that others shy away from talking about.
Her most recent ‘uncomfortable’ topic was based around the importance of men prioritising their mental health. Briefly.co.za saw how Lerato fearlessly opened discussion on this topic as she believes that it is important, even if it is not easy to talk about.
Lerato expressed the importance of mental health to her male followers and reminded them that there is no shame in seeking help if you feel you need it.
