Ntsiki Mazwai has weighed in on the burning issue of Proteas fast bowler Lungi Ngidi. Lungi recently came under fire from ex-cricketers following his views on the Black Lives Matter movement.
The controversial singer has taken to social media to express that what's happening to the cricket star is proof that one has to protect "white fragility" in order to get work in Mzansi.
Ntsiki suggested that in order for blacks to survive in the country, they have to "feed the toxic white ego".
Ntsiki wrote on Twitter:
"What is happening with Lungi Ngidi is proof that to get work in this country you have to coddle white fragility and uphold white supremacy. Survival is about feeding the toxic white ego."

Briefly.co.za reported that former cricketers Rudi Steyn, Pat Symcox and Boeta Dippenaar heavily criticised Ngidi after he called on the team to unite and show support for the Black Lives Matter movement.
Steyn, Symcox and Dippenaar even highlighted this year's number of farm murders during their criticism of Lungi.
In other news related to Ntsiki, the poet recently ruffled the feathers of many Mzansi peeps when she slammed xenophobes for directing their anger at the wrong people. Ntsiki suggested that the black foreign nationals who are in Mzansi are not stealing from the economy.
She said Mzansi citizens should direct their anger at "white people who are actually stealing from you". Ntsiki defended the foreign nationals, saying they are not stealing from the economy but are merely "getting jobs that are at the bottom of the food chain" in order to survive.
"You leave the white people who are actually stealing from you, from your economy because you're scared of whites and now you rather attack the black people."
