Rapper Big Zulu reveals that it’s not easy to be a celebrity
Musician Siyabonga Nene, also known as Big Zulu, recently wore a leather jacket with an R15 000 price tag to an event. This sparked a flurry of comments on social media. According to the Daily Sun, some South Africans accused him of showing off the cost of his jacket, while others speculated that he kept the price tag on so he could return the jacket to the store the next day. Big Zulu did not provide an explanation for why he wore the jacket with the price tag still attached. However, he expressed on social media that it is hurtful when people quickly attack celebrities.
“Today, I’m opening up. It is difficult to be a musician. We always face insults, and hate and are always insulted and called bad names on Twitter and Facebook.
“People are always on standby to attack us. In this industry, you don’t know your enemy and your friend.”
Nene asked fans to stop and show respect as musicians work hard to change lives and change the lives of their parents and the lives of their children.
“In this work, we thank God if we wake up and get another chance where there is nothing people are insulting or attacking us trying to find the mistake. All I ask is respect and thank all those who are still able to respect other people,” he said.
