Netizens applauded Makhadzi for standing up for Skomota
"Thank you for saying this Makhadzi what's wrong with you going to the stage with Skomota and how is that any of Eugene's business?"
"The guy was so disrespectful to Skomota , kamo bare we don’t get his point."
"Kabza ,Nyovest ,nasty c ,areece etc they also have huge influence but neh he didn’t say anything when they came in and now still but he decided to choose people from Limpopo to raise relevant issues , Eugen Khoza must chill even though he was making sense ."
Some thought Makhadzi missed Eugene's point:
"Welele nakoke... Please guys explain it to her. She missed the whole point."
"You missed his point, totally. In an era yabo Merriam Makaba, Bru Hugh and the likes were also entertainers but somehow they were still aware on what was happening around them and they incorporated that in their craft to raise political awareness something our generation lack."
"There is nothing hate about what Eugene said, while you celebrate what makes ur ppl happy, make sure you still have a country that allows people to be happy, cause soon people won't even be able to come to your shows because it's unsafe or they can't even afford a R150 ticket."
"I celebrate all Limpopians, incl YOU. I clearly understood what Eugene was saying & it has nothing to do with Skomota. He says we SAs must focus on the BIG picure. Don't take it personally
