Mandla Maphumulo, popularly known by his stage name Mampintsha, has been trending on social media after posting a video of himself with a group of young men, who he said were his choreographers.
In one video, the musician appears to be singing about alcohol and further gives his choreographers sex advice, which has caused an uproar on social media.
After singing about alcohol, he tells his friends: “Bafwethu, ngicela iyngane niyshaye ngeskoon [When you sleep with a woman, do it without protection].
The world’s largest global non-profit AIDS organisation, the AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) which operates in 39 countries with more than 860,000 patients in care has, however, repeatedly encouraged people to use protection.
“Our key message remains that condoms are ‘Always in Fashion’. Regardless of how long you have been with and how well you think you know your intimate partner, condom use is critical
Hilary Thulare, country programme director at AHF South Africa, said: “Condom usage not only prevents the chances of pregnancy, but also prevents sexually transmitted infections (STIs), HIV/AIDS along with reducing the risk of cervical cancer and wart-causing human papillomavirus (HPV) in women.”
Mampintsha has been trending since, with most showing concern while others slam him for the sex advice he gave his young friends.
The video has received more than 30,000 views on Facebook alone.
