Durban-born musician came under fire on Monday after being accused of inappropriate behaviour at the Durban July by YFM DJ, Thobi Mthembu.
Mthembu took to Twitter to sound the alarm on the alleged altercation that she says happened over the Durban July weekend at KwaMax Chisanyama, in KwaZulu Natal on Sunday. Lvovo Derrango was billed to perform on the day.
Expressing her utter disappointment in the entertainer, Thobi said she’d “lost all respect” in him after he threw a glass at her for accidentally bumping into him.
Soo lastnight I was backstage at some KwaMax event- and Im minding my own business, I move to see a performance and slightly bump some man..— •RoseBud• (@Thobi_M) July 4, 2016
As I say “Sorry” he decides to push me out of the way..I dont recognise this man so I just carry on minding my business…( its @LvovoSA ) — •RoseBud• (@Thobi_M) July 4, 2016
He starts getting vocal and keeps giving me very intimidating looks-now im scared so I go ask someone who he is & they tell me its @LvovoSA— •RoseBud• (@Thobi_M) July 4, 2016
Now I’m shocked at why he would be like this- I carry on chilling and avoiding him because hes starting to scare me- Literally — •RoseBud• (@Thobi_M) July 4, 2016
He then looks at me before going to perform and starts moving closer to me- I immediately start moving towards the guys I came with ..— •RoseBud• (@Thobi_M) July 4, 2016
