In the interview with Drum, Mshoza was quoted as saying: “People need to relax. I’m tired of people telling me what to do, how to live my life.
“If they think this skin lightening has something to do with low self-esteem, then they’re wrong . Women across the world use beauty products to lighten their skins and there has never been an issue about it. Why am I being judged for this?”
Two weeks after this video interview with Motswako, Mshoza was rushed to hospital suspected of attempting suicide. The singer denies this.
In February 2012 Mnisi told Sunday World how her husband left her high and dry.
