Simphiwe Dana used her Twitter account to apologise for a recent rant she went on using the social media platform.
The singer was deeply upset about the local TV show Mnakwethu and vented about it to her fans.
In her rant, Simphiwe got a little personal and threw insults at Musa Mseleku, the show's host.

Simphiwe feels that the show humiliates women and her comments about Musa - who is a known polygamist - went below the belt.
But she feels that she was in the wrong, and said as much in a series of tweets.
"I have watched a few episodes of 'Mnakwethu' in disbelief over the past few weeks. As a feminist, the emotional abuse and humiliation of women on the show really hurt and angered me greatly.
"As a result, I personalised that anger and took it out on Musa Mseleku. I unreservedly apologise for this."
Simphiwe has not removed the original tweets and says she still does not approve of the show.
Simphiwe is not the only person who has been disturbed and upset by Mnakwethu. Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that Mzansi Magic was forced to defend Musa after he suffered harsh critique from South Africans.
Viewers say they are yet to hear one good reason why any of the men need second wives. According to them, the show is just embarrassing wives and promoting cheating by men.
