A few weeks ago South Africans were left reeling after photos of a battered Boity were shared online. The photo was taken after the media personality was attacked by former Metro FM host, Bujy Bikwa while the pair were having drinks in a Midrand restaurant.
She has since sued Bujy for over one million rand and peeps who first sided with Boity, are not very impressed.
Boity vs Bujy: Mzansi celeb slaps Bujy with pricey lawsuit
South African TV presenter and actress Boity Thulo gained the sympathy of thousands after she was attacked by fellow media personality Bujy Bikwa.
The two were allegedly enjoying drinks with friends when a conversation about ancestors and traditional healers turned sour.
According to voice notes that were taken on the day, Bujy then threw her with a glass of wine which resulted in the celeb being rushed to the hospital to treat numerous cuts and bruises.
Since then she has gained the support of her millions of fans who both encouraged her to take action while shunned Bujy for GBV. It seems many are beginning to change their minds about the altercation after hearing that Boity is allegedly demanding R 1.2 million from Bujy.
A lot of them have called it a “frivolous” lawsuit while others suggested Bujy strike back. Someone even sugested that Bujy pay Boity back in R100 monthly installments while others advised him to rather go to jail.
Here’s what Mzansi has to say:
Lubanzi Mathebula Ntinga said:
“Boity be acting like a hungry person, if I was Bujy I’ll rather be arrested.”
Lesedi Ramsley said:
“No way, you know Bujy wa phanda tlhe bathong. What harm did he do to the value of R1million cause the “Daily Suns” That were there say you first threw him with a glass or paper straw.”
Bayanda Besana Tjale said:
“Celebs and their frivolous lawsuits.”
Many other locals have continued to show Boity their support and encouraged her to make sure that Bujy pays up. Others remarked that Bujy may not even have that kind of money to hand over.
