Talented singer/songwriter Busiswa took to her IGTV to upload a three-part video series where she opened up about being a victim of abuse from her last two relationships.

“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 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 sought professional help, hoping that it would put an end to the abuse in her relationship. “I really thought that abuse is something you can get through with your partner.”

“I’m here to say to ladies who are in abusive relationships or who’ll ever come across that situation, God forbid, you can’t. It’s not your place, it’s not your responsibility, it’s not your job to change an abuser.”

“When I was in abusive relationships, initially, I kept it a secret. I didn’t tell anybody to protect the person I was with at the time. I also didn’t want anybody to think that I am weak. How could confident, strong, empowered Busiswa be in an abusive relationship? I’ve since come to learn that it happens to anyone, in any status of life, from all walks of life,” she concluded.
