Johannesburg - South African Youtube sensation, Lasizwe Dambuza found himself trending for all the wrong reasons on Thursday night.
It all started when Lasizwe posted a video of one of his skits on Twitter, where he can be seen trying to video call a friend who does not answer the phone.
That one Friend!!! ???? who doesn’t answer!!!— Lasizwe (@lasizwe) June 21, 2018

While many tweeps were trying to find the humour from the video, American Youtuber, Jay Versace put the 19-year-old on blast and called him out for copying “everything” he does and posting a video he had done previously, that had the same concept.
boy you copy everything I do https://t.co/jaxXHgQ8oN— JAY (@JAYVERSACE) June 21, 2018
Lasizwe denied the allegations and the two Youtubers soon engaged in a mini twar that saw Jay Versace telling Lasizwe that what he was doing was “F**k’d up” and Lasizwe hitting back in isiZulu.
I don’t..., but it’s flattering to know that you follow everything that I do ????? https://t.co/Px8O53M4UM— Lasizwe (@lasizwe) June 21, 2018

South African Twitter was not impressed with the allegations and quickly distanced themselves from Lasizwe for ‘embarrassing’ the Nation.
