"I just wanted to address what's happening, people talking about my weight and stuff. You know what, guys are not wrong, I am going through a lot. I just want to thank everyone who sent their prayers, loving messages, and support."

But he did say that the rumours that he is dying are false, but he has instead changed his lifestyle drastically. 

"I'm not dying, I'm OK. I'm not sick," he laughed. He then added that he made some changes in his life, "I've just changed my lifestyle. There are things I don't do and eat anymore. There are things I do every day, like physical activites. Those things make people change. So I have changed and that's why I look like this."

"I just wanted to say thank you though. There are things I will not talk about because they are very personal. Right now it feels like the concern and love, most of us as artists we need. We often feel like you guys forget about us. We need the love and we need the affection.

"Everyone who talks about me and the emails I received, DMs calls and everything Thanks guys, it makes me feel so good to know that you guys care."

Samthing Soweto then thanked the people who said nasty things as well as those who defended him from those trolls.
