Nomcebo Zikode has come under fire after she posted a video of her recent performance at a News Café in Limpopo. Many pointed out that the venue was overcrowded, flouting Covid-19 lockdown regulations.
TshisaLIVE reports that Nomcebo's team responded to the uproar by distancing themselves from the safety protocols. According to them, those health measures were the responsibility of the venue and not the performer.
The team added that police should have been called if the venue was overcrowded. Nomcebo apparently only performed one song and they left soon afterwards.
The publication further reports that News Café brand manager Varina Singh said the company has launched a formal investigation into the incident.
Briefly.co.za had previously reported that Nomcebo Zikode has been called out for recently performing at a packed venue in Venda.
The songstress took to social media on Tuesday, 22 September to share a video of herself performing her smash hit Xola Moya Wam' for an excited crowd at News Café in Thavhani Mall, Venda recently.
The songstress posted the video to show appreciation to the people of Venda who sang her song word for word. Some tweeps decided to call out the star for not adhering to the lockdown regulations. The tweeps pointed out that the crowd did not have their masks on and they did not practice social distancing.
Even though the country has moved to Level 1 of the Covid-19 lockdown, government has encouraged people to continue wearing face masks and practice social distancing. Nomcebo's fans have been accused of breaking all the rules as they sang along the star during her performance.
The singer has become Limpopo's fave after her world-renowned hit Jerusalema with Limpopo-born Master KG. Xola Moya Wam' has also reached Gold status.
