The woman on the s*x tape looked like Pabi Cooper and it wasn’t long before her fans reached out to her to inquire if she was the one on the tape but she ignored the rumours.
Besides the striking resemblance to the person in the video, most tweeps were convinced that she indeed was the one on the tape and the said tape had been leaked as a strategic marketing ploy for her song- Thanda Kanjani featuring DJ Maphorisa, Zuma and Reece Madlisa which was released a day after the s*x tape was leaked.
