Speaking at the funeral, Mbuli slammed people who commented on Mandoza’s weight and, when the singer was still alive, spread rumours that he had died when, in fact, it was false. He said those people must pray and apologise to God.

He further slammed those who said the SABC Thank You concert was empty, saying it was an insult to Mandoza.

“Mandoza did not perform at an empty stadium. You must apologise for that too,” he said.

Other Twitter users were not impressed with Mbuli for cutting off other speakers.
