The popular singer weighed in on the crisis that the South African Airways finds itself in and also talked about the looting she believes was done during Jacob Zuma's time as leader of the country.
Soon, a lot of criticism came flowing in and Sho was trending on Twitter. Her fans didn't stand for it and swiftly came to her defence.
