Tbo Touch is currently in LA to pay his respects to the late Kobe Bryant.
The basketball star died, along with his 13-year-old daughter and seven other people, in a plane crash on Sunday morning.
Touch was deeply affected and has flown to Kobe's city to mourn the icon and cover memorial proceedings.
Some tweeps called Touch out and said he was for doing too much.
However, others defended Touch and said they'd also be sure to go pay respects to their late role model if they had the means.
Presenter Penny Lebyane explained that Touch has always been an avid basketball fan and often covered basketball games for her Metro FM show.
Touch explained that Kobe means more to him than just basketball.
He also pointed out the LA Lakers are partly owned by a South African-born entrepreneur.
Touch also linked to Robert Marawa's radio sports show from LA last night.
