- Media personality, Ntsiki took a jab at Woolworths for their lack of black-owned products
- Ntsiki even threw shade at Bonang Matheba, saying Woolworths was only using Bonang's name for the products, and that Queen B didn't really own it
- When Bonang caught wind of the insults, she hit back in her classic way
Ntsiki Mazwai messed with the wrong celeb this week. She didn’t expect to get cut off when she called out Woolworths over their lack of black owned products. Whether it was deliberate or not, she threw a little shade in Bonang’s direction but was not prepared for the Mzansi Queen B’s comeback.
While Briefly.co.za knows that Ntsiki is a lover of all things black, but sometimes her pro-black loves comes across at anti-white. This time she decided to take on Woolworths, and in her fury, attacked the successful black woman who is currently working and trading with the Woolies retail outlet. The businesswoman in question was none other than media personality, Bonang Matheba.
Ntsiki first questioned whether Bonang owns the rights to all of the merchandise and products she sells for Woolworths, which is Bonang’s MCC, BNG and her lingerie line called Distraction.
“I once asked… does Bonang OWN the Distraction line and House of BNG or is it her name Woolworths is using? Because yazi, I’m seeing Mihlali.”
Ntsiki’s questioning sparked a huge debate on her timeline as tweeps contemplated whether she was hating on another successful woman, or was she raising important questions about the inner operations of the entertainment industry.
Ntsiki then went on saying that Woolworths had “no black products” and that Bonang was only being used as a "smokescreen". But social media users were not impressed. Here are a few reactions:
It’s wasn’t long before Bonang caught wind of what was going down, thanks to her loyal fans who had tagged her timeline. But Bonang hit back in the best way she knows, by showing that comments like this are irrelevant to her.
Will Ntsiki leave this alone, or will there be another clash with Bonang and Ntsiki?
Meanwhile, five days ago, Briefly.co.za reported that media personality and musician, Ntsiki Mazwai, has joined the online debate over a decision to cast KB Motsilanyane as Lebo Mathosa in an upcoming biopic.
The biopic, Dream: The Lebo Mathosa Story, premiers on BET Africa on 6 November and is based on Lebo’s life. Viacom made an announcement on Tuesday and confirmed that the role of Lebo in the docu-series will be played by KB Motsilanyane and Buhumi Madisakwane. Bahumi is set to play the younger version of Lebo while KB will play the late muso as an adult. The decision divided fans, who flooded social media to share their opinions on the casting.
“KB may have white people connections but she doesn’t have the Lebo Mathosa energy. Not by a long shot,” she tweeted.
