@Tokzen_Gardner was disappointed:

"Dj Maphorisa honestly disappointed me after so many cases of GBV we have been through, then him committing one having so much to lose? Big up to Thuli P, let’s please protect her than attack her please."

@UMntuNgabantu observed:

"If Dj Maphorisa was just a normal guy working at an ordinary job, Thuli P wouldn't date him. People Date for benefits these days and I don't say it's wrong but it always ends ugly."

"Seeing DJ Maphorisa and Thuli P tweeting a joint statement is prove of that ezababili azingenwa."

@huli_longtom weighed-in:

"Some guy did say in the morning that she's going to withdraw the charges. That guy was spot-on. Now her withdrawing these charges, does it mean she lied? Or they just got to her and pay her to withdraw?"
