DJ Maphorisa

DJ Maphorisa is under fire after it emerged that he was allegedly dating a 19-year-old. This comes after the teen influencer was exposed by her friend on social media. The conversation shifted to Maphorisa with many criticising him for entertaining younger women. Influencer Cyan Bouke accused her former friend, Beverly (who is also a brand influencer) of dating the Mzansi muso. She posted a screenshot of a conversation with her where Beverly revealed that she is dating the Amapiano artist.

Buhle_Nolls saud: "We've normalised dating older men & called them blessers, we've normalised posting nudes on the socials on some it's our bodies [sic] we can do with them as we wish, we've been saying things like "secure the bag sis" & now we want to come here & question morals? Njani? #Maphorisa"

"So 19-year-olds are old enough to vote and determine the fate of a country. They are old enough to join the army and die for the country but, are too young to date Maphorisa?" 

While some criticised Maphorisa for his preference for younger women, others defended him by dragging Zodwa Wabantu in. The dancer has not made it a secret that she prefers younger men. Twitter user Lunga_Shezi94 said:
