Dj Mahoota has come to Itumeleng Khune’s defence after a video of the Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper offering to buy a bus and Moja Cafe in Soweto went viral.

In the video, Khune can be seen having fun with friends, while trying to get off a bus. He seems to be refusing to do what he is being asked to do and instead asks for a speed point so he can swipe his card.

The video, which went viral on Twitter, divided social media users, with some slamming him for the “embarrassing” video, while others defended him and said he was only having fun.

Mahoota, who was also at the party that Khune and his friends went to, has defended the Bafana Bafana goalkeeper, saying there was nothing wrong with what Khune did.

The Ziwa Murtu hit maker says Khune is within his rights to party and be “naughty” on a night out with his friends.

“This thing is being blown out of proportion‚” DJ Mahoota told SowetanLIVE. “I mean all of us are allowed to have fun on a night out with friends. I just don’t understand why this is trending. I just don’t understand what it is that is wrong about what Khune said or did. He was just being funny and he was just being naughty that’s all.”

Mahoota added that Khune does not have a drinking problem and does not party before games.
