People were mortified after seeing one of her dancers pushed off stage during a performance earlier this week, but the singer has said she believes she had good reason for doing so.
Speaking during a live stream on Facebook in response to the uproar caused by her actions, the singer explained that she wanted to put her dancer aside to avoid getting the stage wet, which would shorten their performance.
“We played my yellowbone song, so you know there’s a part where we say cheers to life, champopo, so we gotta bring the party, you gotta see we’re vibrating because the song is vibrating too.”
Keeping the stage ‘dry’
Makhadzi said the song was second on her set list of songs to perform, so she couldn’t get the stage wet because they couldn’t finish the performance.
“I saw that she wanted to pour water on the stage and unfortunately if she can pour water on the stage we will not continue performing because the stage would have become slippery.”
She went on to claim that her mind was on both the crowd and the dancer, so she was unaware that she would have fallen off the stage.
“Mavoda body lotion is now a major brand that will be available in several major brand stores. I mean my own lotion, owned by the one and only Queen of Venda and Africa,” she announced on social media.
With this upcoming venture, she joins the likes of Connie Ferguson, who launched the Connie Body Care brand, and Minnie Dlamini, who owns a self-titled line of body lotions.
In another post shared on Valentine’s Day, Makhadzi stated, “Since I started using Mavoda Body Lotion, my skin has been glowing.”
The products come in various white containers with labels reminiscent of the striped material used in traditional Venda clothing. Mavoda lotion contains ingredients such as mango extract, vitamin E and sweet almond oil.
She chose those ingredients with the goal of giving her customer base long-lasting hydration.
Makhadzi has plans to expand its Mavoda product range to include other beauty products in the future.
