Actor Zola Hashatsi is pleading with industry peers not to turn a blind eye to SK Khoza’s recent aggressive behaviour that is going viral on social media.
Videos of Sthembiso “SK” Khoza having heated confrontations with strangers have caused growing concerns for his wellbeing among his fans.
Zola Hashatsi took to his Instagram page on Wednesday, making his third attempt to reach out to the actor to contact him, after trying to call his cell number and through a direct message a month ago when reaching out to him about a similar situation.
“He’s a friend and fellow thespian … Reaching out to him on social media is just to make aware other fellow thespians and ‘friends’ … So it’s just a wake-up call for people to be aware and to try to help because if anything happens to him — God forbid — we’ll see people coming through.
“We’ve seen how they did with Pro, with Kuli, with City Lyts. If you’re going to call yourself a friend, you must be able to call each other out when we’re doing the good, the bad, and the ugly,” Zola said.
Zola says he after watching the videos that have been circulating on social media and new ones that continue to come to light, he was certain that there could be something wrong as he did not recognise the character he was displaying.
“It just hurts because you can see that, it’s not him. He’s not in control of what’s happening to him. It’s just out of character. It’s not him. I’ve worked with him, so I know SK. That’s just not him. Something is controlling [him] or someone is doing voodoo work.
“It’s not normal behaviour what’s happening to him and I’m not sure what it is. And that’s what I’m trying to find out so that we can assist. We all party, and drink but this is not normal. We can’t act like we’re not seeing this … we mustn’t wait for something drastic to happen. We’ve seen it with Bra Pat, we’ve seen it with Riky. It should not get to that.
