Vusi asked for people to understand and support him as he deals with his personal life and to protect his children.
Social media users took to the internet to react to the situation
"If Vusi is guilty he must face the music. But don't tell him he had no right to expose his wife. He has every right to the world that he is dealing with a woman odla ama drugs...
He is not painting him as junky he is telling a fact!!
If he's guilty he must face the music."
"What an awful & insensitive statement by Vusi #Thembekwayo, in an attempt to appear smart & responsible. Wittingly or unwittingly, he confirms he physically abused (assaulted) his wife. Instead of taking responsibility, he is trying to blame her alleged substance abuse. Very sad."
"We wake up to this unfortunate GBV allegation involving Vusi Thembekewayo and his wife.
Below, Vusi explains the context from his point of view. His wife explained her side to the Police.
The Matter is before the Court of Law to establish the fact.. not Twitter Cangaroo Court."

Fans of Podcast and Chill are always sending the host guest requests and he can't always deliver. The South African reported that many fans have been begging for a Cyril Ramaphosa episode and even started circulating a poster with the president on it.
The president's head of digital communications, Athi Geleba, hopped on social media and shut down all rumours of Cyril ever appearing as a guest on the podcast. Since the peeps can't get the president, they want Mufasa.
