Twerk for PS5
On 13th June 2020, her Instagram handle was on fire as South African men battled to be in her Instagram live. This was after she had promised to award the winner of the twerking competition the much-coveted PS5 console whose worth in South Africa is R12,000.
Best believe South African men heeded to the call and flooded the #TwerkForPhume hashtag on Twitter and Instagram. The men tried to dismiss the notion that women are the only ones who can twerk. Anyone was willing to do anything to get their hands on the newest version of the Play Station that made its way on Amazon a few days ago.
Vigro_kabza the winner of the pricey gift!
Amidst the stiff competition that was witnessed in the challenge, there was one man whose moves stood out, and he blew her mind. The king of twerk, whose Instagram handle is Vigro_kabza, outshone his helpless chaps after he dropped mad moves that they could not keep up.
Phume shoots her shot at Cassper Nyovest
Social media is an interesting platform as it can create the most awkward situations in a nutshell. Cassper Nyovest, who is known to many as a play station junkie, was caught up in the mess after he commented on the Instagram live. During the second round of the Instagram live, Cassper Nyovest made a comment saying:
I am here for the melody inda background!!!! I am compelled to stan!!!! Ba shape ka di PS5 wena darlings.
She thought that this was the best opportunity for her to shoot her shot by asking when they will be getting hitched.
In his defence, Cassper responded by saying:
Hahaha No ways!!!! If o twerkisa batho for di PS5 nagana ke setse ke kopa ntho tse mnate. Phume, I'll rather stan from a distance!!!! Shapa Phume shapa!!!!
Instagram live is not the first time that the fitness bunny found herself in the limelight. On 13th April 2020, she was on the spotlight after she made a controversial post about Woolies. Phume Woolies tweet insinuated that Woolies was no longer a high-end store because of some of the new shoppers who referred to as Mafikizolo. The tweet was interpreted as she was mocking the low-income members of the society, and most people blasted her for being a classicist.
The controversial tweet that was deemed as classicist culminated in the South Africa Institute of Chartered Accountants responding to the matter. The body stated that it had noted the tweet and would conduct an investigation and take appropriate action. It went further to state that the posts that the members of the body make on their personal accounts are a reflection of SAICA.
