The organisers added that had Makhadzi been stuck, she would not have posted the video of her performance on her Instagram page.

"Makhadzi posted a video of her entrance on her IG page. I don’t think she would post about something where she was stuck in. Her entrance was operated by Flying Man Company, which is the best in the country with zero glitches, so I don’t think issues would start with our show.
