South African YouTuber Musa Khawula has come under fire from the public after he shared screenshots of a conversation with Gogo Maweni, which disclosed actor SK Khoza’s HIV status. Gogo Maweni, who has a child with the controversial actor, had previously been involved in legal battles with Khoza over child maintenance.
In the leaked conversation, Gogo Maweni revealed that Khoza had tested positive for HIV while preparing for an upcoming role, explaining that this was the reason he was currently at home. However, Maweni expressed her disappointment in Musa Khawula for making their private WhatsApp conversation public. She argued that disclosing Khoza’s HIV status was not Khawula’s place and emphasized that he was still the father of her child.
