Legendary Mzansi singer Yvonne Chaka Chaka has been dragged on social media for her views on the Covid-19 vaccine. The songstress took to Twitter on Monday night, 18 January and asked why there's still no vaccine for malaria and HIV.
The Umqombothi hitmaker questioned why it only took a few months for scientists to develop a vaccine for coronavirus while other deadly diseases such as HIV and malaria have been around for way longer than Covid-19.
"Vaccine, vaccine. We still don’t have one for malaria nonr for HIV but in few months we have one for Covid, can someone tell me how possible is this? @WHO @EU_Partnerships @UN @NEPAD_Agency @PresidencyZA @Davos @unwomenafrica."
The musician's tweet rubbed many of her followers the wrong way. Most of them dragged her for her opinion on the vaccine while others agreed with her. Check out some of the comments below:
"I’m disappointed this question is coming from you, you’re an ambassador and you're supposed to understand these things better than us! I wash my hands!"
"What did your husband say when you asked him, Ausi?"
"That’s insane! Both malaria and HIV are completely different than Covid and quite a bit more complex. Do you just repost silly stuff? Lol"
"I share the same frustrations with you Ma. Kodwa you need to remember that all this deadly viruses are man made simply to depopulate Africans and are mostly supported by the very same organisation that you are seeking answers from. So basically you're just hitting on an empty tin."
The star took to the micro-blogging platform on Tuesday to thank all those who answered her question "honestly". She wrote:
"No insults please, questions are asked because we all need to understand and be comfortable vaccinating if need be and stay alive. Thank you to everyone who answered my question honestly. @WHO @NEPAD_Agency @UNGeneva @PresidencyZA"
In other entertainment news, Briefly.co.za reported that Kabza De Small recently took to social media to encourage his fans to follow Mzansi's Covid-19 rules and regulations so that the country caould move to Level 2 lockdown.
The musician promised his fans new music if they behave and stay safe until Mzansi moves to the less stricter levels of the lockdown aimed at curbing the spread of Covid-19. The country is currently in Level 3 lockdown. The Umshove hitmaker took to Twitter on Tuesday, 12 January and wrote:
"Hello guys. Let’s stay safe. Please sanitise and wear your masks out there. We’ll go to Level 2, after [I'll] release a Level 2 song."
The star's fans took to his comment section to share their thoughts on his post. One fan @JnrTsietsi said:
"Yes I agree with you, if we can wear our masks we can go to Level 2."
