Exes were involved in the fight for IG viewers! Sithelo Shozi is back in the spotlight and is taking back her shine following her complicated split from baby daddy Andile Mpisane.
This week the DJ teased her social media comeback after a clip of her and her three children went viral . The clip featured visuals of the social media star and her kids; Makhosini, Flo and Coco, the younger two of whom she shares with the Royal AM boss.
And it seems Sithelo Shozi is also stealing back the spotlight off her ex Andile and his new bride Tamia Mpisane.
At least, according to fans who accused the mom-of-three of being “petty” in an Instagram Live “war” against her ex.
After weeks of keeping a low profile, Sithelo Shozi shocked her followers by going Live on Instagram.
During her candid chat, hinted how the title of the track Hell and Back was relevant to the space she found herself in.
“The song is so old, but only now it resonates”, she said.
Sithelo Shozi also insisted that the clip was a “not a music video”, but footage collected during her social media hiatus.
She added: “I was off Instagram for a while. And during that time I was just with my family and kids. My photographer and I decided to do something cool”
“There’s nothing that matters more in my life than my kids,” she added.
The star also spoke about bringing back her kiddies clothing line, her new singles and even the possibility of her starring in her own reality show.
Interestingly, Sithelo Shozi even told her followers that she wants to have “one more” baby.
After Sithelo Shozi ended her IG live, things took an interesting turn.
Andile Mpisane and his bestie Shaun Stylist went live on Instagram. The duo did their best to pull in the views of their chat, even offering to give away R10 000 to one lucky follower
However, Sithelo Shozi had a change of heart and returned to IG Live, where she seemingly stole all the attention away from Andile.

“Sithelo is so petty, no ways”, one tweep said of the exchange.
Explaining what she meant, the tweep continued: “Andile was live with Shaun begging people to reach 5k viewers on their live and then they’ll send R10k to one winner. Sithelo then went live on her acc and everyone left live ya ga Andile to join Sithelo. She is on 9k views now. Andile had to end his live”.

In SIthelo’s second live, she is seen sipping on Savanna, smoking hubbly and laughing at fan comments
“I love you guys, you’re f***ing hilarious and spicy”, she said.
“Winners know when to quit,” she cheekily added.
The timing of Sithelo Shozi and Andile Mpisane’s Instagram Live chats did not go unnoticed by fans.
Many tweeps thought the “level of pettiness” was entertaining.
“Not Sithelo and Andile Mpisane having live wars. Sithelo is winning. She is so petty and I love it,” said one tweep.
Wadlala wena. Andile and Shaun were giving away 10k for 10k views then Sithelo got on live she ended up on 8/9K views while they were sitting at 2K 😭😭😭😭 she’s so petty and I love it
