It seems celebrities have taken the “sharing their lives” aspect of fame to another level. No longer content with just social media or “misquoted” tabloid stories, these days they would rather tell their stories in one-on-one interviews.
The rise of television talk shows like Real talk With Anele on SABC 3 a nd The Cover on Vuzu, have seen celebrities like Minnie Dlamini, Kellly Khumalo and many others tell their “truths”.
The latest celeb to join the bunch with rather “controversial” statements on the The Cover is Bonang Matheba’s ex, Mpumalanga-born DJ Euphonik.
The DJ stirred up reactions on Twitter that lead to #TheCover occupying space on the national trend list on Monday. He was a guest on the show presented by Siyabonga Ngwekazi, aka Scoop, Makhathini.
Euphonik spoke about his life and dreams and, of course, ex-girlfriend Bonang Matheba (again) and her current beau AKA.
Watch the video below:
Following the interview, most people on twitter accused him of being obssessed and using Bonang to stay relevant, while others said they were inspired by the interview as a whole and that those who focused on what he said about Bonang were’nt listening for the “right” reasons.
Others called for the DJ to be booked into a "Bonang" rehab and many retweeted Bonang’s top tweet in response to Euphonik, which says, “....they have to talk about you. Because when they talk about themselves, nobody listens.”
Here are some of the reactions:
DJ Euphonik was just being “real”
“Bonang dominated that interview”
Euphonik “the abuser, in need of rehab.”
What's even worse is not being able to be vocal about it or speak out as a victim because the abuser claims to have "dirt" on you #Thecover— Rebone Lefutswe (@ReboneLefutswe) September 19, 2016
I also want someone who is obsessed with me like Euphonik is with Bonang. #TheCover— MORATWE (@Moratwe_) September 19, 2016
