Natasha Thahane and Lasizwe Dambuza were once Mzansi’s favourite besties. In an industry where cattiness and beefs are prevalent, the two of them proved to us that real friendships do exist, but it seems we were all mistaken.
In just a few short months, the two have gone from friends to enemies. In an interview with MacG on his Podcast and Chill with Mac G, Natasha opened up about their split.
She said Lasizwe’s decision to make her fallout with actress Ntando Duma public, was unpopular with her. On his YouTube show YouTube Drink Or Tell the Truth, Lasizwe asked his guest Ntando Duma what happened to their friendship with Ntando as they used to take pictures together.
Pretending as if she does not know who Natasha she is Ntando said “Who’s Natasha, no I’m not fighting, Natasha who?” Duma asked.
“So i’ll take a picture with Robert Mugabe, then that means I’m best friends with Robert Mugabe now.”
Reponding to Mag G’s question on her allged beef with Lasizwe, Natasha said, “I’m enjoying my silence. He decided to say whatever he wanted to say. He can carry on,” she said.
“One thing people need to learn from my situation with Lasizwe is when people grow out of each other’s seasons, it’s okay. My thing was you need to figure out if we’re industry friends or genuine friends. Lasizwe stayed in my life and it was great. We were good friends. If we have to grow apart that’s okay, but let’s keep respecting each other.”
The two have since unfollowed each on social media. This was also revealed by Lasizwe in an interview with Nandi Madida. Where Nandi asked
“From these soccer players I’m about to mention, whose chest wouldn’t you mind waking up next to — George Lebisi, Thembinkosi Lorch and Andile Jali?”
Lazizwe responded with an Amapiano dance and it was clear that he chose Lorch. When Nandi reminded him about his friendship with Natasha he said, “No, to be honest, Natasha and I have unfollowed each other on all platforms,” said Lasizwe. This morning, Lasizwe apologized for a video of him where he was seen grooving at Sun City while the public thought he was at a mental health facility after saying he was not feeling well.
“I had a choice to either involve my fans in my mental heath journey or be quiet about it. I chose to even you as a form of awareness. This is because it is mandatory for you to take care of yourself and know where to stop and take a break.
He then apologized for not updating his fans that he was out of the facility at the time the video was shared.
“I instructed my team to post the video at the end of my journey which I believe from my side and their side we failed to also reiterate that this is towards the end of my journey so everyone was under the impression that I am still in the facility and I failed to update you that I am out doing well.”
