DBN Gogo on dealing with trolls: ‘I’ll never be bullied on my own account’

While most South African celebrities worry about ‘Black Twitter’ and trolls getting on their nerves, Amapiano DJ Mandisa Radebe better known as DBN Gogo says she doesn’t have the energy to tolerate negative vibes on her account.

The rising star who is at the peak of her career after having two hit singles on high rotation on radio stations, streaming platforms and musical channels has already fallen victim to cyberbullying which is known as ‘Black Twitter’ in South Africa.

Taking to twitter the DJ said she lived by one rule and that’s blocking.

“Rule no1 always. I block. I have no time for anything else. I’ll never be bullied on my own account. I’m not crazy,” she wrote.

She later posted a follow up tweet saying trolls were wasting their time with their hate because success is inevitable for her.

“I know my God will never stop blessing me just because you dislike me. I walk in the light. I would’ve been home by now but we just got two more shows this side,” read her tweet.

In an interview with a South African publication DBN Gogo who is a daughter of former Minister Jeff Radebe said being a child of a former minister did not have any impact on her career but had her friends to thank for giving her opportunities to showcase her talent.

“I started from the bottom and what my family represents due to their occupations has had no impact on my career. Instead, my parents only found out a year ago that I was taking DJing as a serious profession,” she said.
