Thuli Phongolo has finally reacted to claims that she does not DJ during her sets. Some people have accused her of playing pre-mixes and mixtapes and does not know anything about deejaying.
The DJ and actress took to her Instagram page to address the claims that she does not know anything about being behind the decks. Several claims have been made including people saying her rumoured boyfriend DJ Maphorisa sometimes helps her behind the decks.
“My progress is more shocking than my slip-ups, they’re calling it a mixtape! Well, thanks for the compliment,” she said alongside a picture of her behind the decks.
Thuli’s deejaying skills also got dragged when she performed at Big Brother Mzansi. She got called out for apparently playing the full song whereas a DJ joins songs and has great transitions.

Thuli recently hinted that the DJ Maphorisa dating rumours might just be true. This after she commented on his Tweet and made followers believe that they are a thing.
Maphorisa was bragging about his success while posting a screenshot of his 125.3 million listens on Shazam. He even said the number of things he achieved over the years in his lengthy career. Thuli couldn’t miss the opportunity of directing the spotlight towards herself when she commented by asking why did he leave out the fact that he is also a boyfriend.
