Scorpion King DJ Maphorisa has recently taken to Twitter to express his feelings on how he believes that dating “broke” women is “toxic”. The conversation on social media with regards to dating “broke people” has been a hot topic for a while.The Amapiano pioneer seems to think that the idea of not dating broke people goes both ways. Taking to Twitter with the twitter handle @DjMaphorisa he stated: “Dating a broke girl is so toxic shame.”
Last year 2020, Boity shared how she could not wait for her husband to leave R100k for her just to go out for brunch with her girls, while Somizi Mhlongo-Motaung also said around April 2021 that you need to show him a 6-months bank statement before he will consider going on a date with someone.
South African men got very touched in both these instances even though in modern-day society men are still viewed as providers and SA men, and other sexual orientations, also uphold this patriarchal norm.
This garnered a wide range of responses with some agreeing with the “Lorch” hit maker while others had a different opinions and view of perception.
