The Mzansi music legend took to Instagram earlier today, obviously very upset from an article that claimed she asked foreigners to go back to their countries of birth.
The Princess of Africa - singer, humanitarian and activist - said she was appalled at what was happening in Africa. She said she lived and works for Africa. This is her continent and her roots are here in Africa. Chaka also described the person who wrote the article as full of hate and anger and is fuelling more hatred. The singer begged the person and others to stop spreading fake news.
Yvonne captioned her post: "Love is better and stronger than hate please stop Fake News @auda_nepad @AU @UN why can’t we live together."
Chaka's Instagram post got quite the reaction. It gathered 669 views and 49 comments since it was posted an hour ago.
The singer's followers commented that they wouldn't believe the reports anyway, because she is full of light and love and would never say anything bad about her country.
Here are some of the comments from her followers:
