In her words she said:“Someone posted my pictures on Tik Tok, saying I’d died. A fan sent me a screenshot of the account and asked if I was okay.
“I was taken aback, wondering why someone would do something like that. Death is not a joke. At the moment, with so many people dying, we’re in a bad situation.
“For someone to take their time to open a fake account and post my pictures and write things like that was not right.
Andile said her family and friends became very worried about her, especially as she switched off her phone on Sunday, 24 January, not knowing about the rumours.
“A fan sent a screenshot on Saturday, but I didn’t pay attention to it. The next day, a friend phoned my partner to find out if I was okay.
“That’s when I realised this was serious. I quickly called my mum and told her what was going on. As soon as I spoke to her, relatives started calling her after hearing the fake news. When I switched my phone on I saw missed calls from worried friends and family.”
