DJ Maphorisa is under fire after it emerged that he was allegedly dating a 19-year-old. This comes after the teen influencer was exposed by her friend on social media. The conversation shifted to Maphorisa with many criticising him for entertaining younger women.
Influencer Cyan Bouke accused her former friend, Beverly (who is also a brand influencer) of dating the Mzansi muso. She posted a screenshot of a conversation with her where Beverly revealed that she is dating the Amapiano artist.
Although Maphorisa has neither confirmed nor refuted the claims, social media users have weighed in.
Twitter user Buhle_Nolls saud:
"We've normalised dating older men & called them blessers, we've normalised posting nudes on the socials on some it's our bodies [sic] we can do with them as we wish, we've been saying things like "secure the bag sis" & now we want to come here & question morals? Njani? #Maphorisa"
"I smell R Kelly tendencies here, jola phori but it will end in tears."
"Ama-2000 are taking this thing of "her body, her choice" serious. Older woman in this app be careful what you teach your young sisters. #Maphorisa"
"So 19-year-olds are old enough to vote and determine the fate of a country. They are old enough to join the army and die for the country but, are too young to date Maphorisa?"
While some criticised Maphorisa for his preference for younger women, others defended him by dragging Zodwa Wabantu in. The dancer has not made it a secret that she prefers younger men. Twitter user Lunga_Shezi94 said:
"Zodwa Wabantu did it and was celebrated. Now that Maphorisa is doing it omagogo have a problem?"
Briefly.co.za had previously reported that Zodwa Wabantu responded to accusations of being a predator after she tried to hit on 21-year-old Ntobeko Sishi.
The dancer was slammed on social media for constantly targeting men much younger than her. Zodwa took to Instagram to address the allegations of her preying on younger men. True to form, she turned the serious debate into a joke.
She shared two videos of herself eating pizza and said that she eats young men just like the pizza. She went on to say that she was not a predator but people could carry on messing with her.
