Local poet and singer, Ntsiki Mazwai, has achieved notoriety for some of her controversial tweets. Briefly.co.za reviews some of her spiciest comments.
Ntsiki Mazwai is no stranger to controversy.
She shoots straight from the hip and even when there isn’t a specific target, her tweets have still proven to be too hot to handle for many.
Guilty by association
Earlier this year, she got Mzansi talking with her comment regarding Akhumzi Jezile.
The TV star passed away earlier this year and her tweet paid tribute to him but many were bemused by the links to the LGBT community.
In April this year, Mazwai criticised black children who are only able to speak English.
The timing of the post and nature of some of the comments served as an indication it was directed to the late Winnie Mandela’s great-grandchildren.
This tweet wasn’t even thinly veiled.
In June, Mazwai fired shots at Euphonik and AKA for allegedly using Bonang to further their careers.
Once again, most tweeps disagreed with the statement.
Taking on the president
Mazwai seemingly pledged her allegiance to Jacob Zuma earlier this year as she slated president Cyril Ramaphosa.
Again, most South Africans criticised Mazwai for her stance.
Global Citizen crimes lauded
The Global Citizen festival earned rave reviews for the magnificent performances on the stage.
Unfortunately, the event was marred by criminal attacks on fans after the concert.
Many were physically and sexually assaulted by gangs of criminals outside of the concert venue.
Mazwai swam against the current as she refused to sympathise with the victims and seemingly implied the attacks were justified.
South Africans retaliated right back and many launched a verbal assault on the local poet.
