For the past 72 hours, Nomuzi "Moozlie" Mabena has been the topic of discussion ever since that video of her supposedly being in an accident surfaced.

By now, we're all aware that the accident was a VW Drive Dry campaign made in an attempt to create greater awareness of the dangers of drinking and driving. 

However, even though the campaign caught the attention of many, it , unfortunately, lead to Moozlie getting dragged for taking part in such a project.

Harsh words were spewed against when #RoastNomuzi trended for hours on end over the weekend.

After the video went viral, Moozlie was silent for quite a long time and had only begun engaging with people on social media on Friday afternoon. On Saturday, she then went on a media run to explain why she decided to be part of such a campaign.

The rapper/TV presenter was interviewed by SABC News, and the first question she was asked was what was she thinking by being a part of such a shocking and triggering campaign.

Moozie simply explained that she decided to join in on this campaign to make people realise the damage that they can create by driving recklessly on the roads.

"So many people have lost their lives on our roads, and not only have people lost their lives but the family members that are left behind have been left to deal with all the consequences of other people's actions which I think is incredibly unfair and something needed to be done for those people."

While some people are still not impressed with Moozlie's decision, we wonder if she had informed her family about the entire campaign prior to it going out in public.

Moozlie confirmed that her immediate family was indeed made aware of the campaign and that they are proud of the stance she took in being a part of such a project.

She explained: "I told my mother, I told my father and sister, they were actually the only people who knew that I was going to be partaking in this campaign. They were the only people who knew what I was actually going through.

"We also had to put ourselves in the shoes of other families who unfortunately didn't have their daughter back after 12 hours, we put the nation through 12 hours of panic, but the fact is there are some families who are dealing with this for a lifetime. So it's something that I know my family is proud I did and I'm proud of myself too."
