DJ Tira's wife, Gugu, has come out to show support to Malusi Gigaba's estranged wife, Norma. The politician's wife is currently embroiled in a legal battle with her husband after it was alleged that she damaged a car that was in his possession.
A video of a vandalised Mercedes G-Wagon trended on social media recently and it was reported that Norma Gigaba was responsible for the damage.
Shortly afterwards, Mrs Gigaba was arrested by the Hawks and people have been discussing the scandal ever since.
Many have distanced themselves from the matter but Gugu Khathi is one of the few celebrities who have publicly stood by Norma.
She took to Instagram to post a picture with her friend, saying:
"I've STOOD with you through happy and exciting times as a SISTER and FRIEND and so I shall STAND with YOU through the hardest times @norma.gigaba, that's what friends are for."
Gugu's followers welcomed the post and admired her for standing with her friend. Instagram user nozipho580 said:
"I'm with you guys."
"It shall come to pass"
"We stand with Norma."
"May the good Lord guide her in this difficult times, l stand with her and praying for her."

Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za reported that the South African Music Awards (SAMAs) are once again under scrutiny as many feel that DJ Tira did not deserve his win. The gqom music producer was nominated and won in the Best Kwaito Album category.
It seems many were confused by how he ended up in that category and how he could win against the likes of DJ Maphorisa, Kabza Da Small and Prince Kaybee.
There are already rumours swirling about the dodgy nature of this year's awards, especially after Master KG's hit song Jerusalema was snubbed. To make things worse, another popular Limpopo star, Makhadzi, was also not nominated.
Many social media users have felt strongly that the SAMAs favour certain people and provinces. DJ Tira's recent win seems to have convinced many that there are brown envelope tendencies at play.
