Lasizwe came under fire recently after he was spotted partying a few days after revealing he had checked into a mental health facility.
The YouTube sensation’s fans questioned why the facility would let him out to party. A viral clip shared on Twitter shows Lasizwe dancing to Zakes Bantwini’s ‘Osama’.
“I thought Lasizwe was at a mental health facility moes,” one Twitter wrote.

Some tweeps went as far as claiming Lasizwe faked the whole thing for attention. Others expressed disappointment.
“What Lasizwe did about that mental health thing is the biggest insult to people who actually have mental health problems. He’s busy Dancing to OSAMA in Sun City as we speak…” a Twitter user named @ChrisExcel102 wrote.

Lasizwe speaks out
Lasizwe took to social media on Monday to clear the air. He says the video he shared of himself at a mental health facility last week was recorded towards the end of his journey.
Lasizwe says he asked his team to share the video on his page to raise awareness about mental health.
“I believe on their side and my side, we failed to also reiterate that, and say that guys this is towards the end of my journey, so everyone was under the impression that I am still in the facility. And I also, on my end, failed to update you guys that I am out, I am doing well,” he continued.
Lasizwe says he is doing much better following his release.
“I am good. I’m back, I’m working, and the show has to go on… this is not something that comes and goes, it’s something that is stuck with you for life and we’re stuck together with this. But we’re going to win this.”
His fans wished him well on his journey and thanked him for being open about his mental health struggles.
