After hours of concern‚ swirling speculation and radio silence‚ TV personality and musician Nomuzi Mabena has confirmed through a media statement that the purported car crash‚ which caused chaos on social media was part of a publicity stunt.
Social media was a complete mess well into the early hours of Friday morning after Nomuzi took to Instagram Live to apparently make a “big announcement” while driving.
But the announcement was cut short when a screeching noise was heard and a cracked windscreen came into view. The video continued to run for several more seconds before ending.
Through the statement issued on Friday afternoon Mabena explained the video was part of a campaign for Volkswagen and Drive Dry to bring awareness to the dangers of drinking and driving.
