Initially, tweeps were amazed by the slick design and African elements.

In an unexpected twist, another Twitter user,@Wesley_pipes23, questioned the legitimacy of the brand as an African concept.

However, those claims were quickly shot down by fellow tweeps who re-iterated that the Brazilian-born designer was merely an employee of the company.

Another amazing feature was shared as well, which explains that users would have the ability to control the Ziyanda appliances with their smartphones using Wi-Fi.

A bit of a twitter battle then ensued as tweeps argued over pricing.

One user, @khabubu_phathu, caused quite a stir as he openly criticised the high prices.

When advised to “stay in your lane,” he responded with his net salary.

Based on this fiery reaction on social media, it seems Ziyanda already has many friends and foes even before their products have officially launched.
