He told ZiMoja that him and his wife had to deactivate their social media accounts to avoid the ongoing backlash. “We no longer on a social media at the moment, people have become too invested in this thing,” As a Zulu man, the comedian said he is not against the idea of being in a polygamist marriage in future but he can’t afford it at the moment. I can’t afford polygamy at the moment, it is too expensive,” he concluded.
