Amapiano vocalist Sir Trill, recently came under fire after a video of him with young girls in a hotel room, went viral on social media and raised eyebrows. Speaking to Daily Sun, his manager Given Maseko, set the record straight on the video and said they were shooting a music video.
The clip shows Sir Trill sitting on top of the bed, busy on his cellphone, while the girls converse on the side. The video led many to make assumptions that Sir Trill was probably vibing with the girls, but his manager has poured cold water to these claims.
Some slammed the heartthrob for chilling with the girls and even accused him of being a predator. Some Twitter users defended him and said no one forced them to be there. According to his manager, they were working on Vukani Khoza’s Raythu Raythu music video, when one of the girls got star struck and took the video.
“We were filming a music video and one of the girls got excited to see Sir Trill and recorded the video. She posted it on her WhatsApp status and I guess it was taken from her status and posted on Twitter and Facebook,” he said.
We did not even bother to comment or try to correct anything because we knew there was nothing behind the video,” he commented.

His manager said the person who shared the video caused an uproar on social media by alleging that the girls were minors. Vukani also confirmed that they were shooting a music video and said the girls are over 16 years.
Sir Trill is not the first celeb to be accused of being a predator. DJ Maphorisa was recently accused of dating a 19-year-old. The allegations were made by a young influencer who claimed that the DJ was dating her friend.
DJ Sithelo has also been accused of being a sexual predator by Twitter users. This follows the 7 year age gap between her and Andile Mpisane. Sithelo is 27 years old and she started dating Andile when he was apparently 17 years of age. This means that Sithelo at the time would have been 24 years old.
Tweeps were not impressed by the 7-year age gap and dragged her.
“Andile probably didn’t want to have a kid at that age but Sithelo said baby leverage. She has no shame. Andile was just a child. R Sthelly ngempela. Anyway keep the same energy when DJ’s smash ama 2000’s.
“R Sthelly having sexual relations with a child is bad, the fact that she does not even show a bit of shame is what makes this even worse. I don’t understand why Sithelo and other women do not see anything wrong with this act, but had roles switched ngabe bakhiphe amabele phandle (they would be protesting bare chested.) – ZAlebs
