South Africans have blasted award-winning singer, Elaine after her latest work (song) found its way to social media platforms. The singer whose real name is Ndivhuwo Elaine Mukheli decided to jump onto the Amapiano wagon and saw it fit to feature Focalistic.
In the video that is currently trending, the two singers are seen jamming to their latest track Botshego. We hate to say it, but South Africans were left unimpressed and took to social media to voice their different views.
While others blamed the bad music on Elaine being desperate to make a hit others blamed it on her move to America. Recall that the Pretoria-born singer became hotcakes after her 2019 EP, Elements, topped music charts around the world. Columbia Records quickly snatched her and before we knew it she was signed with them joining artists like Harry Styles, Lil Nas X, and Adele.
This resulted in her moving to America, she’s also said to be studying that side.
Let’s take a look at what South Africans had to say below:
This Elaine downfall is painful to watch because I genuinely thought she’d be an international star

Nah America did, but social media did, you guys cant adapt to anything different. You want artist to stay the same. Black Coffee was right, South African are not good consumers of music. ELAINE’S BRAND IS FINE. https://t.co/O1at39FDRt

“Elaine three songs, no hit. She fell off.”
Your favourite short rapper released four songs & guess what?… No hit.
So please keep the same energy. pic.twitter.com/yt32ae81Th
