Zakes Bantwini pulled the plug on his online music concert in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement.
The musician and DJ took to social media to let his fans know that he decided to postpone his weekly online Love, Light and Music Session concert series.
The Black Lives Matter movement was sparked by the death of George Floyd. Floyd, an African American, died in hospital a few weeks ago after a white police officer knelt on his neck for almost nine minutes.
Mzansi peeps, including celebs, joined the protests on social media after SANDF soldiers who were accused of killing Collins Khosa, a black South African, were recently cleared of any wrongdoing.
Zakes joined the rest of Mzansi who had been using social media to demand justice for Collins.
He posted on Instagram:
"Mourning the death of Collins Khosa and other fellow Africans at the hands of the police and army. I’m postponing my Love, Light and Music Session."
The Ghetto hitmaker's fans also agreed with him.
"Black Lives Matter my brother, all of us should show solidarity, salute!"
"Let's not forget about Marikana."
Briefly.co.za reported that Mzansi stars, including Trevor Noah and Minnie Dlamini-Jones, also voiced their anger following Floyd's death.
Ntsiki Mazwai recently blasted Mzansi peeps for not doing enough to demand justice for Collins. The singer called South Africans "cowards" who are scared to protest against their own government.
The singer felt that Mzansi citizens are not doing enough to demand justice for Collins.
Media personality Pearl Thusi is also on a mission to organise a "peaceful protest" against police brutality, injustice and racism.
