Fans’ reaction to the news
Thabo and Myurdah Bongz were already leading solo careers and not performing together. Many fans are not shocked that the duo has officially split, and they took to Twitter to express their thoughts. Many were saying that it was no use for the team to deny the rumours in the first place because it was clear where the group was headed. Others still accuse DJ Zinhle of splitting the group because Murdah started being a solo artist after dating Zinhle.
