- Ntsiki said Litha served as her remedy when things got difficult
Controversial South African artists Ntsiki Mazwai attended the Comedy Central Roast of Somizi recording last week. Ntsiki brought along her beau, Litha Sunstone, for moral support and to have at least one friendly face in the crowd.
The couple strolled down the red carpet, hand-in-hand and posed for pictures, they seemed happy and completely in love.
Ntsiki was asked if she was nervous about the event and said she brought her boyfriend along for moral support because she knew she had been a bad girl and was expecting to be given a rough time. Ntsiki said Litha served as her remedy during tough times.
Briefly.co.za gathered that the event was unofficially renamed the Roast of Ntsiki because everyone in attendance had come prepared to take jabs at the controversial musician.
Litha for his part said he was unconcerned by the criticism levelled at Ntsiki and said by now he had gotten used to her being portrayed in a negative light.
Litha said he was used to his girlfriend getting backlash from various quarters, he added that he loved her because she was not afraid to speak her mind.
“I'm also kind of weird, so we make a good pair," he said.
Ntsiki later commented that she was crazy about Litha because he was not intimidated by dating a strong and powerful woman.
Ntsiki clearly appreciates her beau's support.
The controversial artist said she would write a blog post about her experience on the show after those in attendance shocked her and showed their support.
Ntsiki infamously lashed out at Nelson and Winnie Mandela’s grandchildren after she heard them speak at Winnie Madikizela-Mandela’s funeral.
Ntsiki was less than impressed when the grandchildren of South Africa’s legendary leaders only spoke in English.
