Local gospel superstar and the Ridza Bhosvo hit-maker Sabastian Magacha has responded to social media posts accusing him of being gay and that he has become a drug addict.
The allegations are based on the way the musician dresses and the energy that he exudes during live performances especially during the launch of his latest album titled, “I Am Favoured”.
In a post on his Facebook page, Magacha said he didn’t know that his dressing and energy could make people make evil conclusions about him.
“I didn’t know that my dressing is atrocious and that it makes me homosexual. I never knew that my energy during performances would be misconstrued to make me a drug addict,” Magacha wrote.
Part of the long post read, “ I know I can’t make everyone happy and I don’t expect to be loved by the whole country. I know even Christ himself had people who were against him. However, in everything I do, I wish to please God,” he said.
The gospel star went on to blame Christians for being jealous and failure to support one another.
“It looks like Christians are the ones that look down on one another. We hate each other over the different churches we go to. So what God do we claim to worship?”
“I am so much pained by people who speak about me and my life, yet all these are lies,” he added.
Magacha said Social media is responsible for the increase in the number of suicide cases being recorded in the country.
He said there is so much hurtful and toxic information that is peddled on social media that causes depression and in some instances hypertension.
“People have issues that trouble them and posting such toxic stuff just worsens their challenges,” said Magacha.
The gospel musician topped the gospel charts in the country after releasing a song titled Ridza Bhosvo in 2013.
Je has numerous songs under his belt and has collaborated with a number of artists including Jah Prayzah and Alick Macheso among others.
