Fans have been left baffled after Motsi Mabuse, 40, posted a cryptic tweet yesterday evening, which some of her followers thought was about her sister Oti Mabuse’s exit from Strictly Come Dancing.
Oti, 31, was a professional dancer on the show and lifted the Strictly Glitterball trophy in two consecutive years: in 2019 with actor Kelvin Fletcher and 2020 with comedian Bill Bailey.
She announced the news of her departure from the show on Instagram yesterday, in view of her 641,000 followers.
Strictly Come Dancing’s professional dancer, Motsi appeared to be in disbelief at the news that Oti is leaving the primetime dance show after seven years.
Motsi posted an emotional tweet, saying: “Hope what I am reading is not true!!!”
Fans replied to Motsi’s tweets and were equally shocked by the news.
Twitter user @VickyBarratt27 suggested Motsi should persuade Oti to change her mind.
She said: “Ring your sister and get her to change her mind please.
“@OtiMabuse is my favourite on Strictly”.
Some followers just replied with question marks, wanting more information about what Motsi meant by her tweet.
Many stars have been left feeling emotional following Oti’s announcement.
A statement was posted on the official Strictly Come Dancing Twitter account, which read: “Oti has been a truly wonderful part of Strictly for the past seven years.
“Her energy, creativity and talent have contributed to so many of the show’s most memorable moments and she will be hugely missed, not only by viewers, but by the entire team.
“She leaves a dazzling legacy behind her, as the only professional dancer to lift the Glitterball Trophy in two consecutive years.
“We couldn’t have been prouder of Oti and what she has achieved.”
They concluded: “She will always be at the very heart of our Strictly family and we wish her every success in her already bright future.”
