Over the weekend, video footage of popular South African actor SK Khoza partying with unclad women in a jacuzzi went viral.
The hashtag #Shaka was trending on social media, referencing the character that Khoza plays on the popular show.
Many fans on social media expressed their disappointment at the behaviour of the actor, saying he was adopting the ‘womanising’ qualities of the character he plays.
In his social media response, Khoza said that his actions were unacceptable as he begged for forgiveness. He also took full responsibility for being at a party during a pandemic.
“Inappropriate video images of myself were leaked online and I would like to profusely apologize to my family, friends, employers and fans for embarrassing them and myself. I have put @Shona_Ferguson ( FergusonFilms ), my family, and @Mzansimagic in a position I totally regret.”
“My actions were unacceptable, I beg for forgiveness. I take full responsibility, especially at a time we are faced with a serious pandemic. I should have made better decisions. I need to do better. To everyone I have disappointed and hurt, I am truly sorry” he wrote.
However, Some tweeps are not impressed with his apology and demand that he should be brought to book for his actions.
I don’t understand why you have to apologise while you knew deep in your heart that your deeds would back fire. Undermining women like that. More esp. SAn women. What uf it was your daughter. Don’t just expect that SA will just say “apology accepted” just like that. One Twitter user said.

Stop apologizing for crap you know you will do again and start behaving better. Treating woman as objects even if they let you is not on. You have daughters set a good example, God forbid they go through such a phase later in their lives.
