Even though gender based violence is often associated with women abuse, Bujy wants to shine the light on men being abused under the same unfortunate instance of gender based violence or GBV.

Speaking to TshisaLive about the backlash he received for partaking in Khuzekani Madoda's 5KM Walk against GBV, he said he wanted to stop being silent about the incident which happened between him and Boity and also educate society that not only women get abused - men too are victims of GBV.

“Joining the walk was moving the silence from me and also taking ownership of what happened. Instead of just sitting back and taking the backlash as if I'm guilty. With this walk, I wanted people to understand that also men suffer from so much abuse. I am aware that with the incident, I gave homophobes a platform to use against us,” he told the publication.

He is also on a quest to help clear the misinformation as to what GBV really is. He said he never abused Boity and he too suffered some sort of provocation when she verbally attacked him and added that he is a nobody.

He told the publication, “I realised with me that South Africans do not have the knowledge of what GBV is. The altercation that happened between me and the other lady is that everybody thinks the fight happened because I attacked her because she was female, not knowing that she attacked me first and called me all derogatory names and consistently reminded me that I am a male, she must hit and I must take the beating.”

The organisation also defended their decision on why they decided to have Bujy on board, "Bujy is not leading any March, he is invited to participate against GBV. GBV is a serious crime and we are providing a platform for our communities to get educated on GBV."

They even released a statement on Facebook which reads, "This awareness campaign on GBV is a platform to educate our communities on Gender (Male/Female) Based Violence but mostly to reach out to young men in society who grow up with no mentors or father figures to guide them. The need to create a platform to mentor boys and young men of color is very important.

"Khuzekani Madoda is a movement to create a platform for those who need Mentorship and assistance to speak about their problems to likelihood brothers maybe with same experiences and challenges."

This whole drama has placed Bujy away from his team on Mac G's Podcast and Chill networl, which he said he misses dearly,  "Happy pride month, and may all the celebrations and festivities go well this weekend. Keep safe and remember you are worth all the love in the world. You matter and you exist. #lgbtqiapride #Jhbpride2021 Missing the team already #TheQueerWayOfLifeWithBujy on YouTube"

Queer Way Of Life With Bujy is on production break until further notice s Bujy deals with this mess.
