South Africans were shocked on Friday morning when a video clip of rapper Nomuzi Mabena – popularly known as Moozlie – went viral on social media.
In the short video, the star talks about her plans for her record label for 2019, while driving, when the sound of tyres screeching can be heard and viewers get a glimpse of a cracked windscreen before the video cuts out.
Our correspondent reached out to Nomuzi’s PR team to confirm whether or not the rapper had been injured, but they refused to comment at the time, saying that a statement would be released concerning the matter.
Another member of Nomuzi’s PR team, Kim Seneke, said that they have been unsuccessful in attempts to reach the star, saying: “At this stage, we’re still trying to find out information.” Seneke added that she had not heard from Nomuzi’s family either.

Twitter users were quick to react to the clip, many not knowing what to make of it.

If its a campaign, its one triggering and violent AF campaign. That kinda stuff should be banned. There are many ways of educating the nation. Some of us are left here shook and worried. #Nomuzi

If people could only see themselves or a loved one in the place of another whos in pain then maybe we would see more sensitivity,more care, more love on social media. Some things I'm seeing…I just don't understand. #Nomuzi 🙏🏼
