The gospel legend has left some wondering if her German cut is even real.

We know it’s not that deep, considering South Africa has more serious issues right now, such as Khanyi Mbau’s pink skin and Nasty C’s Female Artist of the Year nomination at the Samas, but Rebecca Malope and SABC1’s show Friends Like These are the reasons people have trust issues.

Though she has mentioned this a long time ago, so many South Africans did not know that ‘Rebecca’ is a stage name. One Twitter user has caused a stir after somehow finding out that the gospel legend’s real name is Batsogile Lovederia Malope.

Now people on Twitter say they feel betrayed by this ‘revelation’. However, some are having none of it as they say they don’t recognise Batsogile.

“I bet even God knows her as ‘Rebecca Malope’ not Batsogile Lovederia Malope,” one said, while others questioned if our country is even called South Africa.

Another fan was faced with a dilemma after revealing she had named her child after Rebecca. What must happen now?

Check out some of the reactions on Twitter below:

Rebecca is not alone in this. Friends Like These has been lying to us all this time. In the Face to Face challenge, where the five friends are asked questions about each other, apparently all those five cylinders that appear from the table have the same questions.

To make things worse, there is no computerised machine that pushes all those cylinders. According to a photo that has been circulating on Facebook, there is literally a human being who sits under the table and pushes those cylinders.

Check out the picture below:

Facebook user Thapelo Thubisi confirmed this after posting a picture of himself with his friends on the same show and said the guy was right there.

Now only one question remains: Is this Andile?
