Producer Junior De Rocka recently found himself being reprimanded by the Minister of Transport, Fikile Mbalula on Tuesday after posting a video that rubbed many the wrong way.
In the video, the DJ can be seen driving in his car with his two-year-old daughter, Sbahle Mzizi who looks frightened whenever the sound from the revving of the car’s engine pops up.
He shares Sbahle with his ex-girlfriend, TV personality Ntando Duma.
“Our drives home are always the best. Her reaction still KILLS ME,” Junior captioned the video.
Although Junior and some of his followers found the video cute and funny, some were worried about baby Sbahle’s safety – including minister Mbalula who cautioned the star against using his phone while driving.
“Molo Mhlekazi, please do not drive and use your phone. It is dangerous and puts your life and that of your little one in danger. Blue cop and Red Emergency lights should never be in the memory of your young one if the worst caused by phone use while driving occurs,” Mbalula wrote.

This is not the first time the DJ has found himself in hot water on Twitter.
Earlier this year he was under fire after ‘falsely’ accusing a man of racism and again after his baby mama, Ntando Duma accused him of not supporting their daughter.
Take a look at more reactions to Junior’s video below.
