In a video, the award-winning DJ and producer says women who do their own makeup look like corpses.

A video of Amapiano pioneer Kabza De Small talking about makeup has upset many people on social media.

In the video, the award-winning DJ and producer said women who do their own makeup look like corpses.

In translation, he said: “When this whole makeup thing started, professional makeup artists used to do it. You guys look like corpses since you started doing your own makeup.”

He then made comments about dark-skinned ladies who use pink blush, saying pink blush is for light-skinned women.

“Pink on black does not work,” he added.

“It’s always men like #Kabza having such opinions about women while ditaba tsa Banna Di ba palla. He should have focused on hydrating that face.”

Another one said: “I just need Kabza to focus on making good music in the studio and stop making jokes about women because it won’t end well. This is why I love Kelvin Momo, he’s so unproblematic.”
