Award-winning artist Makhadzi has released a song in honour of Lufuno Mavhunga, a grade 10 pupil who took her life after becoming a victim of bullying.
The news of the incident brought bullying into the spotlight.
It led to ordinary South Africans and celebrities sharing their experiences about bullying and how it has impacted their lives.
Makhadzi penned her experience in a song.
In her song ‘Muvhili wanga ( Tribute to Lufuno)’, Makhadzi sings about how she is often teased/bullied because of her looks.
She asks people to stop teasing her about her nose, body, and head.
“Please stop reminding me about how I look, I know and I am proud of myself,” she captioned a video of her recent performance of the anti-bullying song.
