Toya Delazy got shaded so hard by haters claiming she’s on nyaope - a street drug more commonly known as 'whoonga' - that she had no choice but to explain herself.
Briefly.co.za learnt that Toya was slammed with whoonga accusations due to the change in her appearance just a couple weeks back.
Toya's lost weight, cut her hair and gone a tad edgy.
The comments made by the public were so harsh they were almost unreadable. Accusing someone of being addicted to whoonga is no joke.
Toya had no choice but to come forward and explain her changes, otherwise the whoonga rumours would never stop. Drug addiction rumours, or even just accusations of use, could ruin her career.
Being out of the spotlight and out of touch with her fans has not been entirely voluntary for Toya. Other than working on music and pushing her brand hard in the UK, Toya faced the loss of her dear grandmother and she needed time to process it; she wasn't on drugs.
