WATCH | Spoof account rips Danny K to shreds: 'You might as well be Danny K-word'
A post addressing the Danny K race issue by well-known spoof account, Coconut Kelz, has gone viral after "Kelz" cancelled the singer.
Lesego Tlhabi runs the account and her alter-ego, Kelz, often addresses national talking points in SA from a white "kugel" perspective.
Danny K created a stir on social media after commenting that white people need to check their privilege.
While some people applauded the wealthy musician for his statements, others said it wasn't exactly groundbreaking.
"Kelz" took to Twitter to "cancel" Danny for his comments, saying that he might as well "change your name to Danny K-word."

Here's what started the frenzy.
I'm totally bewildered with the lack of empathy shown by many white South Africans. You don't need to be woke to get that for the most part we have benefited from the marginalisation and exclusion of people of colour. Own your priveldge, appreciate it and pay it forward 🇿🇦— Danny K (@dannykmusic) March 8, 2019
