Sorry Not Sorry by Lady Skollie

Sorry Not Sorry by Lady Skollie

Local musician Simiso Zwane, known as Okmalumkoolkat, recently returned to South Africa after serving a one-month jail sentence in Tasmania, Australia, on charges of sexual assault.
The charges were laid after a fellow South African, who was on tour with the rapper, accused him of entering her hotel room and groping and kissing her against her will.
Upon his return last week, Simiso released an open letter to his fans about the charge, explaining that he only plead guilty because he was advised to do so by lawyers.

However, Lady Skollie noticed something about Simiso’s statement that bothered her – it was strikingly self-centred, making no acknowledgement that the incident involved a woman and affected her life, too. To point out the skewed perspective in his letter, she recreated another version and posted it on Facebook with the caption: ‘I want to know about HER, HER, HER. As a self-proclaimed “youth influencer”, I had hoped that he would admit his wrongdoing, survey our current rape culture climate and seize the opportunity to spread a much needed message: I DO NOT CONDONE THIS, DON’T MAKE MY MISTAKES. Alas, a #SorryNotSorry apology was his response.’
When she published her print on Facebook, Laura announced that she would be selling copies for R400 each and donating the proceeds to the Albertina Sisulu Rape Crisis Centre in Sunninghill, Johannesburg. So far, she’s raised more than R15 000.
