Mzansi social media users were quick to agree with him, blaming the pandemic and the cold front for their hardships.

"Sending prayers to all the entertainers during this tough time. I know the finances are starting to look very tricky. Don't be afraid to cut down, now is not the time for Abantu bazo thini (what will people say) or what will people think. Sort out what is most important & cut the rest. We will be back!"
Twitter users swarmed his mentions in response to the post. Social media user ShaunKeyzSA said:
"I feel like you're in that situation. I'm sending prayers to you too bro."
"I was just listening to your song, 'We Living Good' and that message you said at the end of the song really really brightened up my day."
"Ra leboga, God bless you and your family."
"Thank You Mufasa!"
"Definitely a rough time. Anyone willing to support, I just dropped an EP."
