Check out some of the comments from tweeps below:
"Please tell my siblings."
"Maybe we need to understand the word "Urgently " there's no sense of entitlement in urgently. Urgently could mean I'm in dangerous situation example my kid is deadly sick and I urgently need money to take to a Dr. what so wrong about that?"
"You're rich so you won't understand things we go through... How would I not need someone's money urgently when I'm in trouble than needs money urgently and I know someone who can send me money urgently... But you won't understand."
"It's not entitlement on other people's money, there are some serious situations that can force an individual to ask for other people's money urgently. If you have never struggled in life it won't make sense to you."
"I get what you're saying, but sometimes some people's situations may require you to need money urgently. What I don't like is the fact that you're dragging too long to return it."
In other entertainment news, Briefly.co.za reported that Khanyi Mbau has weighed in on the effects of alcohol ban in Mzansi. The media personality has shared that completely banning alcohol amid the Covid-19 lockdown in the country is not the solution.
The reality TV star took to Twitter on Monday, 4 January to share her two cents on government's recent decision to ban the sale of liquor under Level 3 lockdown.
The stunner first applauded the people of Mzansi for behaving on New Year's Eve. She commended the citizens after there were "zero trauma cases reported" on 31 December.
She believes that people were well behaved because of the presence of law enforcement agencies on the streets of Mzansi on New Year's Eve instead of the ban on alcohol.
"I doubt that banning alcohol made all the alcohol disappear, people had alcohol in their homes."
Khanyi also shared her concerns about those whose livelihoods depend on the alcohol industry. Khanyi urged government to open the sale of alcohol for at least a few days.
