Lasizwe Dambuza is not flattered by suggestions that he has a blesser and he has taken to social media to clear his name once and for all
The popular internet comedian has been one of the rising stars of the local entertainment scene during the last two years. He is now a celebrity in his own right, but his new-found fame has not come without a price.
His lavish living has been put under the spotlight, and lines got blurry when it emerged that his boyfriend had bought him a brand new apartment in Sandton. This led to speculation that Lasizwe could be dating a blesser; speculation that was further fuelled by Jackie Phamotse, the author of Bare: The Blesser’s Game.
Jackie got the country talking about the Bryanston Hockey Club back in June; a now infamous location where rich men allegedly use their money to lure young men and women into transactional relationships.
At the time, she insinuated that Lasizwe was one of a number of young men who fell victim to the temptations of this life
It all began when Phil Mphela questioned the usage of his image in an article (note, Phil did not suggest that Lasizwe was part of the “Hockey Club” syndicate).
Eish… there is something creepy about this title and that picture together. He looks 12.
Why are we condoning such messages mara? And we surprised young boys and girls are in things “The Hockey Club” to sustain the gram life. Even teen idols are so overtly sexual these days. pic.twitter.com/mjPMoE8eJW

This is where things got juicy.
Jackie responded by writing: “He is one of the boys we are currently investigating for his role in the HOCKEY CLUB. He allegedly has been getting huge amounts of money from a guy called Peter… a millionaire from Free State.”
Jackie and Phil continued the exchange by saying:
Trying to fit in Sandton is no joke, working and keeping quiet 🤫 is the best thing anyone can do. With so many sharks around these young boys are the biggest targets. Yet they are desperate to show off that they over rule the consequences

Before Lasizwe responded for the first time:
Hi Jackie, you’re more than welcome to publicly release whatever evidence you have that has led you to believe this. Actually come on my show on @TouchHDOnline I’d be more than happy to have you. https://t.co/Gslf6b6eAJ

However, this wasn’t enough to sweep the rumours away and Lasizwe has done his best to end the speculation once and for all
The internet sensation took to YouTube to upload a video in which he explained how he and his boyfriend met, the logistics of their romance and their complex financial dynamics.
He also has a word for Jackie and her “investigation”.
