Acclaimed South African musician Simphiwe Dana has made a public apology following her controversial tweets this week.

"There's an expectation, especially in the SADC region, that South Africa must fix ills. What is in it for us?," she tweeted on Wednesday. 

She also made a comment about Zimbabwean president Robert Mugabe that did not sit well with the country's citizens.
