With social media, it's become a bit easier to sling accusations and unfounded ideas on a whim. Those accusations spark conversations and this time Lasizwe is front and center.
This all began simply enough with Twitter user Phil Mphela expressing his concern over the use of a young Lasizwe's imagery to speak about open relationships
Eish... there is something creepy about this title and that picture together. He looks 12.— Phil Mphela (@PhilMphela) June 5, 2018
Why are we condoning such messages mara? And we surprised young boys and girls are in things "The Hockey Club" to sustain the gram life. Even teen idols are so overtly sexual these days. pic.twitter.com/mjPMoE8eJW
Of course, with the mention of 'The Hockey Club" (a alleged transactional sex ring based in Northern Joburg) came Jackie Phamotse, the original author of the book "BARE" who claimed that she was investigating the possibility of Lasizwe's involvement in "The Hockey Club" going as far as to say they suspect he's getting money from aa rich man from the Free State.
He is one of the boys we are currently investigating for his role in the HOCKEY CLUB. He allegedly has been getting huge amounts of money from a guy called Peter... a millionaire from Free State.— Jackie Phamotse (@JackiePhamotse) June 5, 2018
Of course, Lasizwe responded and even offered to let Jackie present this evidence on air on his show
Hi Jackie, you’re more than welcome to publicly release whatever evidence you have that has led you to believe this. Actually come on my show on @TouchHDOnline I’d be more than happy to have you. https://t.co/Gslf6b6eAJ— Lasizwe (@lasizwe) June 5, 2018
Wild. It's kind of weird how people have always taken an interest in what other people are choosing to consensually do with their bodies, even going as far as to shame them regarding that. In the event that it is true that Lasizwe is involved in transactional sex, what then? The person is shamed and? Anyway, we hope she takes Lasizwe's offer and tell the people what she knows.
