- Mihlali Ndamase posted a message that she was craving some KFC on social media
- Then KFC obliged offering her a free meal
- But social media users thought it was unfair and she could afford her own meal
Social media users were unimpressed with Mzansi vlogger and fashion influencer, Mihlali Ndamase, on Wednesday when KFC answered her request with a “special gift”. They called it unfair.
The drama started when Mihlali tweeted that she had some serious KFC cravings. Then food outlet then obliged with “check your inbox” response.
KFC responded to Mihlali’s tweet: "Hi @mihlalii_n. Sivukile. Siyamamela. Nantsi iKFC negravy. Utye, uhluthe. Uhlise umgowo sana. Qha! Check your inbox for a treat from us."
According to TshisaLive, other people on social media stumbled across the tweet and then started to complain about Mihlali being the “favourite child”. They claimed that it was unfair that the “coined” influencer was getting a free meal while the rest of them had to eat pap in the skaftin.
Tweeps pointed out that UK-based media company Hopper HQ’s recent list of influencers rated that Mihlali was coining about R25 000 for every Instagram post. She felt that she was earning enough, and didn’t need any free “treats”.
Mihlali’s names trended on Twitter for a long time, with social media users teasing whether the Add Hope campaign was providing Mihlali with her free meal. KFC usually asks customers to contribute R2 towards its Add Hope campaign to help feed children across the country.
But others defended the fashion icon, saying KFC simply took advantage of a marketing opportunity and ran with it.
Yoh, even the Minister of Transport, Fikile Mbaulula, joined in the fun. He joked that Add Hope actually meant 'Add Mihlali'.
But KFC responded to the minister assuring him that the money went to charity and also spread the same message to others who took jabs at the food outlet on the Twitter thread.
KFC also provided other tweeps with their own treats via their DM.
Meanwhile, Mihlali retweeted on the Twitter thread saying "cravings were sorted for the month".
Meanwhile, about four weeks ago, Briefly.co.za reported that Mihlali Ndamase, the popular influencer and make-up artist, received a lot of negative attention after doing a young lady's make-up on TV show, Top Billing. Social media users said she did a terrible job.
Popular blogger, influencer and make-up artist, Mihlali Ndamase, got dragged after social media users were left unimpressed by the make-up job she did for another young lady.
Whether social media users were just being mean and nasty or actually had a point is really a matter of point of view. While some people felt Mihlali did a good job given the time she had, others felt she just messed up.
