DJ Shimza has had a really bad weekend. Twitter wants to cancel him after he was rude to an upcoming DJ who wanted to feature on his lockdown virtual session.
He apologised but many South Africans did not accept his apology and want him to sorry properly.
Briefly.co.za learned that #Shimzamustfall was trending on Twitter and he has not felt the love from the people.
However, all is not lost, some people have stood up to defend Shimza, one of them is none other than EFF leader Julius Malema. Some people are not too happy with the CIC standing up for Shimza.
Here are some people's reactions to Julias:
ZAlebs reported that DJ Franky had also stood up for DJ Shimza, praising him for coming up with idea for the virtual sessions.
However, not everyone agreed with him:
Briefly.co.za reported that the DJ who was rejected by Shimza has landed a gig with Black Coffee after the international DJ gave him a chance.
DJ Black Coffee has come through for a struggling Mzansi DJ in a big way after he got snubbed by Shimza.
The DJ had been attempting to join one of Shimza's lockdown virtual sessions and evidently he thought it was a waste of time.
The harsh response resulted in social media dragging Shimza, but the outcome wasn't all negative.
Black Coffee had been touched by the situation and reached out to offer the DJ a spot on the streaming lineup of his own show, Africa is Not A Jungle.
