Musician Nakhane has hit back at suggestions that he fled South Africa in the wake of backlash against his 2017 film Inxeba: The Wound. Nakhane has been touring the world since he decided to leave our shores to base himself in the UK full-time over a year ago. The move came as traditional leaders in South Africa called for his film to be banned from cinemas for depicting the Xhosa initiation ceremony and its use in a gay love story. But speaking to Huffington Post US recently, Nakhane denied that he had fled the country, saying it simply made sense for him to move for the sake of his career.
