Durban - While South Africans were tucking into their Easter treats, Economic Freedom Fighters CIC Julius Malema was being dragged through the Twitter streets for siding with DJ Shimza who 'cold-shouldered' an aspiring dj on the social network platform at the weekend. 

The aspirant dj, DJ Ceega Wa Meropa tagged DJ Shimza in a tweet asking him for an invite to one of his lockdown shows. 

%%%twitter https://twitter.com/Shimza01?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@Shimza01to invite me on one of his lockdown shows since the president extended.. Also askibg everyone who sees this tweet to RT

But Shimza responded that the youngster should stop harassing him.

This irked the Twitteratti who defended the youngster's plea and slammed Shimza for his response. 

%%%twitter https://twitter.com/Shimza01?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@Shimza01Since when is asking harassing? And he asked nicely. You could've just said No or better yet ignored. Harassing 😲😳

DJ Ceega Wa Meropa's tweet was seen and responded to by DJ Black Coffee and later Durban radio station, Gagasi FM who went on to offer the youngster a residency.

Shimza later took to Twitter to apologise for this response which earned him little respect from the Twitter community. 

Meanwhile, Malema tweeted that he agreed with Shimza's initial response.  

%%%twitter https://twitter.com/Shimza01?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@Shimza01. You worked very hard to be where you are and can't be destroyed by those who suffer from self-hate. Apology accepted, now continue playing good music.
