Despite a ton of backlash, it seems she's getting some positive recognition after Lady Du looked her way for someone to join forces with on the new Amapiano meets Gqom single called Mashamplane, The South African reported.

The chemistry between them in the music booth left little doubt over their level of enthusiasm for the project. But online sleuths did not reciprocate the same energy, with plenty trashing the song and noting the pair could have done a lot better, ZAlebs reported.

A con artist of note

Those who thought that was the only thing that peeps went after on social media would be forgiven for being mistaken. A few alarming allegations were served up against the singer for her "sudden interest" to collaborate with DJ Hlo.

This was as some, who hold the opinion the singer used Andile for his money while he was a famous actor but lost interest as soon as his career took a nosedive due to Isibaya running its course, believe she looks to ride and subsequently capitalise on DJ Hlo's new-found fame in the same way.

Many painted her as an opportunist who intends to latch onto DJ Hlo and dump her once she's no longer of any use. Conceivably, it was only a matter of time before the uZuma Yi Star record-maker caught wind of the swirling online theories.

In what appeared to be a subliminal clap back to her detractors, the artist went on a rant on Instagram by listing her accomplishments. She hit out at people who suggested she had an ulterior motive, adding she's been working hard since she was a fresh-faced teenager, having bought her first car at the age of 16.
