A lot of women have kept silent on their experience with abuse but enough is enough for “SBWL” singer Busiswa Gqulu who has decided to break her silence and reveal that she too is a victim of abuse from her two previous relationships.
Taking to her IGTV, the artist began by saying that she needs to get something off her chest and then went on to disclose her gut-wrenching experience.
“In the years between 2013 and 2019, I was in, not one but two abusive relationships.” Said Busiswa” The first was with Sfiso Mazibuko who abused me physically, psychologically and emotionally. The second one was with Katlego Mlangeni who is the father of my child. He abused me physically, emotionally, financially, not only while we were in a relationship but he came after me four months after our break up to beat me up once again after seeing me out with someone else.”
she made it clear that the reason behind her videos is to help women who might find themselves in the same situations.
“I’m not making this video to speak about these to individuals. I’m making this video to talk about gender-based violence but also, to talk to women and girls who have or may ever find themselves in those situations.” She continued. “When I first got beat up by a man, my first thoughts were not of anger but pity. I was in love and I thought the person that I was in love with was going through some things and I felt I needed to help them get through those things.”
