Fail to understand your logic. Rap is an American art on its own. That's like saying people who speak English with a British accent is the same as wearing a weave.

Briefly.co.za noticed that Ntsiki went on to criticise South Africans who teach their children English but not their native tongue.

"It's embarrassing when your children [only] speak English... especially since it's done to appease and fit in [with] their white friends who don't care about learning your languages. You're so deeply insecure parents... and pathetic actually.
"What you wanna know English for? To go set up shop in Britain? Your people speak indigenous languages. Amen"
