Hitmaker Busiswa has taken to her social media to go after rape apologists on Twitter. Ignited by the ongoing conversations about gender-based violence (GBV), musician and abuse survivor Busiswa reminded victims of GBV that men on social media platforms are often willing to die on the hill of being “abuse” apologists.

“One thing about my brothers on this app, they will defend, justify and nullify abuse,” she said. “If you’re in an abusive relationship, I know it may feel like you’re on your own and have nowhere to go but please speak up and walk away. It’s not worth your life or joy. You deserve joy too.”
