DJ Tira has faced backlash again for his alleged self-profiting tactics, after showcasing how he hosted a supposed super-spreader event this past weekend.
DJ Tira took to Twitter on Sunday, 1 August 2021, to share a since-deleted post on his page. The post was a video showcasing the party he hosted at a club in Johannesburg. The video sparked backlash, considering that the event allegedly broke all the COVID-19 safety regulations and restrictions. Moreover, this was reportedly not the first event of this manner by DJ Tira.
This is not the first time that the DJ has been called out on social media for his alleged continued showcase of profits over the safety of the public. Earlier that week, Tira faced backlash for attempting to propagate vaccinations using the right of admission clause for anyone that is not vaccinated during Fact Durban Rocks 2021. The musician was ridiculed for prioritising his financial gains over the health of his fans, and allegedly showcasing his priorities in light of his silence on the Phoenix Massacre.
In light of the continued backlash, DJ Tira deleted the video. Moreover, he returned to Twitter on Monday, 2 August 2021, suggesting that he was not the organiser of the event. He claimed that he was hired and paid to perform, which is what he did.

While yap yapping about my name don't forget I don't own a venue, I'm a Dj I get booked to come and perform, get paid and go home. Be responsible and remove yourself from places that may be a danger to your health. Makoya Bearings #RockstarForever 21 Years of greatness 👍🏾 pic.twitter.com/fNbgEa4RzE
