The entertainers, especially musicians, have shared clips and pics from their gigs showing their fans not social distancing and in some cases not wearing masks. The Mzansi stars have also been guilty of not wearing masks and social distancing when interacting with their fans.
Briefly.co.za takes a look at four of ours stars who have ignored lockdown rules when they went out to party or perform for their supporters.
1. Zodwa Wabantu
Zodwa Wabantu posted a series of videos of herself performing to her Instagram page. The star's performance was a hotbed of possible Covid infection as concert-goers were squashed together trying to get closer to Zodwa on stage. The star leaned forward in her bikini-top and gold skirt to hug people she could reach in the crowd. Zodwa was also touching fans who weren't wearing masks or social distancing and can be seen kissing some fans on the lips in the footage.
2. DJ Tira
DJ Tira shared a picture from his latest gig showing women grabbing him, some not even wearing masks. Even though live gigs are open again, the regulations still state that masks must be worn in public spaces and some level of social distancing needs to be practised. This did not seem to be the case on Makoya Bearings' night out.
3. Boity Thulo
Boity shared some pictures of the lit weekend she had in Bloem. It is safe to say that the people of Mzansi, including Boity, are not afraid of the rona any more. Boity made it clear that the rona was not stopping her from getting turnt. Sis had no mask on, neither did anyone around her, and it seems social distancing was a distant memory.
4. Nomcebo Zikode
Nomcebo Zikode was called out for recently performing at a packed venue in Venda. The songstress took to social media to share a video of herself performing her smash hit Xola Moya Wam' for an excited crowd at News Cafe in Thavhani Mall, Venda recently. 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.
In related news, Briefly.co.za reported that KZN Premier Sihle Zikalala has warned citizens that a hard lockdown seems inevitable unless cases are reduced. Speaking during a media briefing on Sunday, the Premier said that the statistics are a sign that a clampdown may be necessary.
"Looking at the statistics, we can now safely say that we are definitely going back into a hard lockdown if there is no urgent and drastic change in behaviour."
The politician explained that a second wave would be 'stronger and deadlier', not just when it comes to fatalities but economic fallout. The premier feels that 'reckless' alcohol sales have the 'potential to derail' progress made against the virus.
"There is no use in chasing profits today only to be shut down by a hard lockdown tomorrow."
