Oops! Tumi Masemola Makes A Huge Error Announcing The Death of Veteran Actress Candy Moloi. Talk about pulling a Mark Fish on us. Tumi Masemola joined mourners as they took to Twitter to pay tribute to the celebrities we recently lost. Her only mistake was logging off after sharing her tweet which had a major error.
The actress and singer shared pictures of Zindzi Mandela, Mary Twala, Moonyeen Lee, and, WAIT FOR IT…Candy Tsa Mandebele. It is quite evident that Tumi misread the #RIPCandy that trended on social media on the day. In fact the nation was mourning the death of veteran actress Candy Moloi, who is best known for her role as Makhadzi on SABC2 drama Muvhango.
“My heart is broken. I am not one to regularly post those who have passed. To me it is like glorifying death but this morning I will publicly mourn women who continue to inspire me in my everyday. May your souls rest in love. My deepest condolences to their families,” Tumi posted on Twitter.
This definitely reminded us of the time when the former Fish posted a wrong ‘Hugh Masekela’ picture. The former Bafana Bafana player, shared a picture of himself with Sipho ‘Hotstix’ Mabuse while paying tribute to the late Hugh.
It’s never too late to rectify a mistake though. Tumi became the bigger person when she deleted the tweet, and posted an apology for the error she made.
“My sincere apologies for my grave error. I am completely embarrassed and wish I could dig a hole. Le ntshwareleng for posting incorrect image. CandyTsamaNdebele is very much alive,” Tumi said.
