DBN Gogo stirs controversy among fans with unproven statements

As Covid-19 cases still rapidly soar, last week President Cyril Ramaphosa placed the country on level 3 lockdown with stricter restrictions.

Since then, and because the number of infections increases daily, conversations around Covid have dominated social media.

DBN Gogo took to Twitter to question why the groove had been pack up and not other social gatherings.

It all transpired after the Thokoza Café artist asked (in a now-deleted tweet) why couldn’t the whole country get on pause and not just booze and therefore the jol.

After a tweep was like “???”, DBN Gogo explained that she was posing for an easy answer to her simple question.

“It’s an easy question. If social gatherings are difficult, why have they not all been closed? When groove and alcohol were shut. Why wasn’t it all shut?,” asked DBN Gogo.

The Twitter user then proceeded to elucidate that the mixture of alcohol and partying can cause an occasion to be a super-spreader of the virus.

However, the star lambasted the govt, claiming that it had been not truly handling the problems head-on.

“But as the primary lockdown not implemented to organize for the worst-case scenario? That’s literally why we pack up hard and early. My problem is gov not actually handling this. But finding scapegoats,” she tweeted.

DBN Gogo also went on to spotlight that albeit South Africans have a social responsibility to stay society safe, there are more complex matters at hand when it comes to the coronavirus.

“Definitely social responsibility, but we all know and see that we aren’t a responsible nation. If people didn’t listen then, why would they listen now? It’s just convenient responsible it on two things when it’s just not that straightforward,” she wrote.

While some fans rallied around DBN Gogo, the bulk hauled her over the coals for her opinion.

Here are some responses from tweeps:

Gogo, it isn’t just the groove that’s being blamed. it’s said to be one of the super spreaders. One of. Church gatherings and funerals also are events that are identified. once you drink alcohol you tend to require to socialize and govvy is trying to limit everyone’s movement.
