- Bonang Matheba, like many other SA artists, is not the biggest fan of Minister Nathi Mthethwa
- Airing her views on social media, Bonang made it known that Nathi is not her favourite person and for good reason
- Nathi saw Bonang's post and offered to clear any concerns she had but not over social media
Bonang Matheba clearly has an issue with Nathi Mthethwa and was not afraid to make it publicly known. Queen B was spitting fire and Nathi did not even see it coming.
Everyone is entitled to their own opinion about another person, even celebrities. Just because you are a public figure doesn’t mean you have to pretend to like everyone – sis is human at the end of the day, just like you and I.
Briefly.co.za knows Bonang is not scared to voice her option, especially when it is regarding someone or thing that has rubbed her the wrong way. Queen B always handles her matter with class and it definitely makes it sting a little more.
Nathi Mthethwa, born Emmanuel Nkosinathi Mthethwa, is a prominent South African Politician and Leader. He is famously known by the nickname ‘Nathi’, which is derived from his first name ‘Nkosinathi’. Currently, Nathi Mthethwa is the Minister of Sports, Arts, and Culture.
Seeing a social media user air their views about not being a fan of Nathi, Bonang felt the need to let everyone know that she too is not a fan of his. Nathi has not done the best job at providing relief for peeps in the entertainment industry, so B has all the right to feel some type of way about him.
Nathi saw Bonang’s comment and welcomed her criticism. He asked Bonang to please let him know why she feels the way that she does so he can address the issues. Shame, we can only imagine the mouthful he got after this.
“Noted Bonang. I would like to invite you & @Mpumz_N to kindly share your concerns with me. You may share them on this platform, via DMs or email. Whichever platform you prefer.”
Briefly.co.za previously reported that Mzansi artists are struggling financially amid the Covid-19 pandemic. Many of them were happy when Sports, Arts and Culture Minister Nathi Mthethwa announced the R150 million relief fund to help sportsmen and artists during the ongoing lockdown that's due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Most Mzansi celebs have now taken to social media to share their grievances about the lack of financial support from the government since the lockdown began. Actress Nokuthula Mavuso has joined the likes of Kelly Khumalo, Rami Chuene, and Stoan Seate, who have complained about the lack of funding from the government.
Nokuthula wrote a precise Twitter thread to Mthethwa and the SA presidency, detailing her struggle as a freelance actress.
