Former actor Nay Maps, whose real name is Nkosinathi Maphalala, lost another family member after his father’s death last year. He shared a heartfelt message as follows on his Instagram profile.
“Mkhulu, you were correct, you told me that people will lie and want to construct something for you for their own personal purposes, however the reality will remain… And I should never be influenced by them because I know the truth, and the truth will remain and be obvious regardless. It saddens me to write this as I only recently lost my dad, now you left us too to be with him.
What a sad week, so thanks for mom’s present. Thanks for speaking about my life and positivity. You’ve lived and encouraged me. I’ll really thank and celebrate you. I will continue, as you said, to uplift and encourage many in my life.
I love Mkhulu. RIP Mkhulu-Daddy.”
Following the backlash he got a few days earlier, Nay may even have reacted to his s.e.xuality accusations. Recently, he was trending after being seen traveling in similar outfits with his mate, and social media concluded.
Condolences overwhelmed his comments section after this sincere post. Death isn’t dumb. Will his soul be at rest. If you’re going through the same scenario, be solid and be brave with Heaven.
