- Kwaito artist, Mampintsha Shimora, addressed rumours about his sudden massive weight-loss
- First Mampintsha said he didn't care what people were saying and that their thoughts were their own prerogative
- Then Mampintsha also mentioned that he was baffled as to social media's reactions
Mzansi Kwaito artist, Mampintsha Shimora, has finally addressed the rumour mill regarding his sudden massive weight-loss.
Briefly.co.za learnt that the celebrity was the talk of the town last week after a video of him dancing went viral on social media.
In the video, Mampintsha was entertaining with his dance moves, but it was his gaunt look that stole the show and got social media users buzzing. Many tweeps suggested that only an illness could make someone lose such massive weight.
Mampintsha took to social media to address the hurtful rumour about his mysterious weight-loss. In the video, Mampintsha said he doesn’t think much about other people’s opinions and those people are probably going through a dark phase themselves.
Mampintsha said he was also baffled about the rumours because when he was overweight, people were bashing him and now that he lost weight, he is still being ridiculed.
Take a look at the video below:
According to ZAlebs, Mampintsha told Ilnaga Langesonto that he is currently a size 32, which has been his dream size for a while.
The Kwaito muso confessed that he has taken the healthy route and although he has bought gym equipment, he hasn’t started working out yet.
However, Mampintsha withheld other reasons that had led to his massive weight-loss.
Meanwhile, three days ago, Briefly.co.za reported that Mandla 'Mampintsha' Maphumulo got the social media streets talking when a video of a skinnier him went viral.
In the video, Mampintsha could be seen dancing, and tweeps were quick to start diagnosing him with various diseases, making him trend on Twitter.
Some even went as far as saying that whatever is happening to the muso, he deserves it. But none of those bad vibes was to be found among Briefly.co.za's readers after they read about it.
Instead, people were happy for Mampintsha and the fact that he managed to lose weight - they didn't think he was sick.
