Wondering why DJ Sithelo Shozi has been given the nickname "R Sthelly"? Well, social media is "disgusted" at the age gap between Sithelo and baby daddy Andile Mpisane. Andile recently turned 20 years old and on his birthday, Sithelo confirmed their relationship on Instagram, which raised many eyebrows.

The DJ waited till Andile turned 20 years old before she can 'announce' their relationship. A 7-year age gap is not so bad, right? But what tweeps are trying to figure out is when did they start dating. Sithelo is 27 years old and she started dating Andile when he was apparently 17 years of age. This means that Sithelo at the time would have been 24 years old.

Many comparisons have been made, seemingly the age gap between AKA and his fiancé Nelli Tembe, who dated AKA when she was 21. He was in his mid 30s and even though people were uneasy at the age gap, they are both consenting adults. Another comparison was that of Beyoncé and Jay-Z. The two dated when the former Destiny's Child member was in her late teens and the rapper was in his 30's.

So where is the line drawn? Many theories are being thrown around and despite many people defending Sithelo, she is being labelled a sexual predator and the attacks just keep on coming.

Showing no signs of being bothered, Sithelo defended herself on Twitter by dissing the people attacking her. She laughed off the outrage on Twitter and said "naze naphithizela" which translates to "scurrying."
Soon after, R Sthelly started trending and people dragged Sithelo for laughing at people's anger.

"Majority of men actually lose their virginity through rape, underage boys preyed on by way older women. This Sithelo / R Sthelly issue is responsible for many social ills in our country.

"The thought of looking at a teenager who you are 6+ more years older than, sexually is so weird.

"The disgusting thing is woman think men are the only rapist here according to them woman can't rape a man man is the only human being capable of rape Sithelo sexual molested Andile but no one is ready for that accountability.

"Andile probably didn’t want to have a kid at that age but Sithelo said baby leverage. She has no shame. Andile was just a child. R Sthelly ngempela. Anyway keep the same energy when DJ’s smash ama 2000’s.

"R Sthelly having sexual relations with a child is bad, the fact that she does not even show a bit of shame is what makes this even worse. I don’t understand why Sithelo and other women do not see anything wrong with this act, but had roles switched ngabe bakhiphe amabele phandle (they would be protesting bare chested.)
