Minister of Sports, Arts and Culture Nathi Mthethwa has been in the firing line ever since lockdown started and people feel he is not holding up his end in his position.
The coronavirus has had many people feeling some type of way and they have not been quiet about it either. Many SA artists have come forward to say their bit too.
Briefly.co.za knows how Nathi has been dragged for allegedly not doing enough to provide relief and we can’t even blame the people. Things are tough and there are many crying out for help in every industry.
Elaine is a South African R&B/soul artist who has taken the industry by storm. It was announced that the beauty has bagged a deal with Columbia Records, a record label that is owned by Sony Music Entertainment.
Seeing the great news about Elaine, Nathi took it upon himself as the Minister of Sports, Arts and Culture to congratulate her and thank her for making Mzansi proud. Never did he expect to get the reaction that he did.
“We're proud to hear the news that South African R&B sensation Elaine @elaineofficial_ has signed with @ColumbiaRecords, joining global icons such as Beyoncé & Adele. Her hit song "You're the One" has over 2.7 million views on YouTube. We're incredibly proud of your achievements.”
Social media users ripped Nathi a new one. They felt it was a bit rich coming from him when he has done little to nothing to help SA artists. You can’t only pop up when the going is good, baba!

Briefly.co.za previously reported that 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.
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.
