In 2016 Mazwai revealed on Twitter that she had been the victim of sexual violence. She said that she suffered this violence at the hands of an “industry guy”.

“…And thing is….i know i said no and i know i tried very hard to push him off me…..he was just too strong…..but yeah i’m lying.

“And when that d**k has ripped inside your vagina……..everything else doesnt matter, the battle ends. He won. #1in3 

“and i dont know why i didnt scream……. #1in3,” she tweeted.
