South African gospel star, Dr Rebecca Malope is probably one of the nicest and kindest people in the entertainment industry in South Africa, and many believe she would never hurt anyone.
Mzansi applauded her humility when she featured on Jub Jub’s smash hit Ndikhokhele.
The Umoya Wami hitmaker got people worried after posting a cryptic message on Twitter on 1 May 2022, asking her fans to pray for her because of her pain.
I am so hurt, I’ve never experienced such disrespect as I did last night. I thought I’d be fine this morning but I’m not ok. South Africa please pray for my heart to be mended 🙏🏾

This was a day after Bucy Radebe’s live DVD recording at Sun City in Johannesburg, where she also performed.
What happened that night has started emerging, and it has been revealed that Bucy Radebe’s husband Thapelo Thoboke, who doubles as her manager, swore at Dr Rebecca Malope and told her to “f*ck off”.
Gospel music blogger Neo Modihapula shared an unconfirmed screenshot of what transpired. It read:
On Saturday we attended Bucy’s live recording where Dr Rebecca Malope was invited as one of the guest artists. For someone her calibre, she didn’t deserve the treatment she got. She was treated unfairly and even told to ” f**k off” if she wanted to by the manager of the main artist.
I happened to hear the conversation and see everything unfold and my heart was broken by what transpired. This indicated lack of artists and mistreatment. You have seen her comments on social media about what happened and she constantly says I have never been disrespected like this in my whole life.
But Dr Rebecca being herself she still went on stage to perform and honoured her invite. There has not been a formal apology from Bucy and team. This is really sad for someone who sings gospel and claims to preach about God.
This did not sit well with tweeps. Check out their reactions to the news.
There were some last minute changes made to the performance that she was only told about as she walked on stage . Band playing and all

Spouses managing their partner’s careers usually doesn’t end well… So many examples out there 🙄🙄🙄 Anyway I hope hubby realizes he’s just the ‘help’ not the star

Nooo guys this can’t be true, keep in mind Bucy met with Abraham and Moses, also went on some appointment with Merriam I’m not sure for what, and she also had a walk with Paul and spoke about heaven matters while having tea.

Bucy and her husband ate very rude, just from the first album , if you can check their responses from Facebook when interacting with people you will be shocked

When you sing Gospel for money, such attitude reveals itself. When you sing to heal others, your attitude and discipline stays the same.
