A tearful Bucy said she fears for her life and getting death threats. “Someone sent me a message calling me Sathane. I am being called the devil and it hurts me”, she said. “For all the drama that happened. I’m sorry sis Ribs”.
Speaking at a media conference held at the Apollo Hotel in Randburg on the 12th of May, Busy Radebe claimed she was exhausted.
“I drive a personalized car. I’ve been getting threats from people saying they will kill me. This is not right. I didn’t do anything. I don’t know why I am being punished,” she said. “It breaks my heart because I am also human even though I am in the public eye.”
However, Bucy said she would not say much about the incident that occurred at Sun City. Her manager and husband, Thapelo Thobike, was accused of telling Dr Rebecca Malope to f&@k off at her live DVD recording in Sun City, North West, on 30 April.
“I was on stage. I only got off stage to change my clothes. I didn’t talk to any of the featured artists,” she said. “I dont want to comment on that because I didn’t witness much”.
She said she thought it was unfair to be expected to explain why she didn’t witness anything. “I was on stage waiting for my icon to join me,” she said. “I look up to Rebecca. I grew up listening to her songs. This was a dream come true”.
She said she woke up on Sunday morning and found out that something had happened.
People on social media also accused Thapelo of being an abuser and claimed that he controls Bucy. She refuted the claims.
“It hurts me that GBV is being used as a joke. I don’t take these lies lightly. I met Thapelo in 2017 and he has never laid his hands on me. I have never been in a hospital because of abuse. To the people who are spreading these lies, please get your facts straight,” she said.
Thapelo said the issue was started by a change in the setting of Bucy and Ribs’ performance.
