South Africans have had to make several life adjustments since the coronavirus hit the country’s shores.
With President Cyril Ramaphosa prohibiting gatherings of more than 100 people this has meant that going out to popular groove hangout spots has become a thing of the past in Mzansi and unfortunately meant that several social events have had to be postponed or cancelled.
In a bid to create awareness and keep the arts alive, DJ Shimza launched the Quarantine Online Party with some of Mzansi’s hottest DJs.
But not everyone was impressed about DJs online party Sho Madjozi took it to social media and Slam DJ Shimza’s Quarantine Online Party For Not Sensitizing, Social distancing and to use the same Equipment.
“I was so impressed by the #QuarantineOnlineParty kanti the DJs and their friends were all touching the same equipment and grooving in one house
Like that’s literally still a party… among people who are the highest risk of spreading it. I.e people who’ve been traveling all over the country and world recently.
Social distancing means:
1. Staying 2 meters away from each other where possible.
2. Not going to restaurants bars and parties.
3. Not greeting with handshakes, hugs or kisses.
It sucks but it’s our best chance of fighting #Coid_19SA” – Sho Madjozi Twitter
