To which he responded: "If anyone brings proof that i got paid for tweeting about the vaccine i will pay you R10 000 plus all the money you say (I) got as this is a "paid promo". Sometimes in life, you must just do what you think is right and forget about the noise."


On the flip side, songstress Amanda Black has been receiving a blacklash after airing her views around getting vaccinated on Twitter.

Labelled an anti-vaxxer and even stupid, Amanda asked whether people should be forced to get vaccinated even if it was against their cultural or religious beliefs.

And if it's against someone's religion to vaccinate, we don't care?" She asked.

"And if it's against someone's decision whether it be according to the aproved science or not, we don't care?" She tweeted.

She went on to say that people should do their own research and critical analysis before making any decisions.

Twitter users hit back at the star who then asked why she was being forced to vaccinate. Amanda said she would not debate vaccine efficacy but was pro-choice.
