Zodwa Wabantu has been slammed for visiting a friend under lockdown and for not social distancing or wearing a mask during the visit.

She posted a picture of herself with fellow muso Dladla Mshunqisi on Instagram, telling followers she had paid her bestie a visit to check up on him.

But her fans attacked her for not social distancing. She told TshisaLIVE she did nothing wrong and had simply been working with her friend.

“We have papers, we are working. This is the entertainment industry and we need to work by being with each other. I know the rules and regulations but we are no longer at level five and scared. It was purely work.”

“We have masks, we have our temperature checked constantly. We are careful. We were just taking a picture.”
