They say, "you got to do what you got to do." Yes, people go to extreme heights to get what they want. The world has enough dramatic events going on already. Even so, SA celebrities have raised the notch higher by getting into the spotlight after giving some pretty big lies to their fans.
Well, a little white lie has never hurt anyone, right? People have got to survive and fake it till they make it. Some of the SA celebrities, however, do that too much. Their respective fans are now actually getting fed up. Almost like the camera spotlight is not enough, some stars get into many scandals to become more famous in the celebrity world.
SA celebrity lies
You know some statements just come out as plain falsification and nothing else. Here, check some of the wildest white lies that various personalities have said in the past:
Life could be challenging at times, and some might not have had a smooth childhood history. One of the biggest lies celebrities have told is concerning their family backgrounds; almost all of them come in boldly and say how hard it was to grow up in hardship. Obviously, there has to be someone who grew up in a better environment at least. There is always the use of poverty in their profile description. Yes, life could be hard, but maybe some had wealthy family backgrounds, right?
South African celebs have committed perjuries about being sent threatening e-mails, just like Bonang Matheba, who accused Ntsiki Mazwai of allegedly sending her one. Fake news concerning the people they are dating has also been one of the many perjuries circulating through social media. Matheba sued DJ Zinhle for telling people that she had been dating AKA. Of course, she dismissed the rumor, and you can imagine who came out looking bad!
Some even lied by claiming that the awards they receive will go to help the needy on their social media pages. However, that never happens; the speech usually plays its part in creating the right image. Some never do what they promise, which is super disappointing.
