Mzansi social media sensation Mr Smeg gets suspended

In other news, Briefly News recently reported that popular social media sensation Mncedi Bucwa is once again a hot topic on the streets of Twitter after it emerged that his account was suspended.

Known to his followers and all of Mzansi as 'Mr Smeg', Bucwa rose to prominence over the last year, thanks to his red Smeg branded kettle.

Through his antics with the appliance, taking it with him virtually everywhere he went and even giving it the occasional bathroom treatment with a face wash, Bucwa garnered a massive following of 492 000 followers.

Social media users had a loud reaction to the development, seeing the influential tweep trending for most of Thursday.
