"I started doing hard drugs at a later stage, there were times when I purchased drugs for myself but most of the drugs I used were from the men I dated, I dated drugs dealers and men who were also drug users," she told Anele Mdoda.

In her comments section were people trying to comfort her with words. 

"I’m literally crying. The pain of losing a mother is something we’ll never forget 😢 I pray that God grants you peace and happiness. Sending you love & light, mommy," said Letoya Makhene.

“Wow babe. As a country we were so preoccupied that we couldn’t really take a moment to celebrate her life and mourn with you properly. Uxolo. Dudu,” Pearl Thusi commented.

"Oh God, why are people peeling onion everywhere. I’m bawling uncontrollably, please know that you are never alone,” said Criselda Kananda.
