- Ntsiki Mazwai took to social media to share her opinion on how unimpressed she was with this year's Miss SA pageant
- Ntsiki shared that she felt the pageant was ironic for being celebrated on Women's Day when women prance around half-naked
- But Mzansi was divided in their response to Ntsiki's tweet, some even called her a hypocrite
Mzansi singer and poet, Ntsiki Mazwai, took to social media to shade this year’s Miss SA pageant for falsifying women empowerment.
While many are celebrating this year’s pageant, which was dubbed the best ever, Ntsiki disagreed and shared her two cents' worth on Twitter.
She wrote: "The irony of #MissSA2019 being on Women's Day because what it means to be a woman is to prance around naked and compete to be better looking than other women . Well done patriarchy, you won this round."
Some people praised Ntsiki for pointing out what people were afraid to say out loud, but others thought felt that Ntsiki was being a “hypocrite”.
One user even pointed out that Ntsiki previously posed naked, even though it was for a different cause. See the tweets below:
But Ntsiki didn’t take offence as usual but instead chose to clap back by saying: “This is how women learn to hate each other because society tells them that it’s about being better looking than other woman.”
Ntsiki added a very “unbothered” picture of herself with a caption asking tweeps if they were always going to catch feelings over her tweeps.
According to TshisaLive, Miss SA, has always punted women’s development and empowerment. Zozibini Tunzi was crowned its latest winner at the finale in Pretoria last Friday.
This was the second time that the Eastern Cape beauty competed in the prestigious pageant. She only made it to the semi-finals in 2017.
Meanwhile, four days ago, Briefly.co.za reported that in the spirit of Women’s month, Ntsiki Mazwai decided use her rage to spark up a feminist-based debate on social media that was actually relevant.
Ntsiki is known for her sharp and controversial tongue. The widely-disliked celeb has many strong and colourful opinions about worldly matters that many do not agree with.
Briefly.co.za learnt that Ntsiki’s inner feminist surfaced on social media when she aired her views on the strong presence of patriarchy and how women are still hugely undervalued. Out of her usual opinion, Ntsiki brought up a rather true and relevant point regarding Women’s Day events - men hardly ever support them.
