- Ntsiki Mazwai has announced that she wants to stage her own protest against Clicks
- The poet made it clear that if celebrities wanted to join her then they would have to rock their natural hair
- Some Mzansi social media users thought she was throwing shade at Babalwa Mneno and Bonang Matheba
Ntsiki Mazwai has taken to social media to share that she is considering staging a march against Clicks stores over their recent racist advert. The poet said that she would only invite black celebrities who wear their natural hair.
The advert that has caused uproar suggested that ethnic hair is "dry and damaged". It has resulted in protest action at Clicks stores across the country, led by the EFF.
Poet Ntsiki Mazwai has also joined in on the action. However, Ntsiki wants her march to be exclusively for those with natural hair.
Taking to Twitter, she posted:
"I'm going to do a protest march... WE WANT TO SEE BLACK CELEBS IN THEIR REAL HAIR!!! They are brainwashing the black girl with their insecurities."
Social media users had mixed reactions to her announcement. Twitter user MeYoRichAunt said:
"Just say you hate wigs and weaves and keep it moving."
"Yeah woman, its time to take your weaves off."
"I have fake hair, I don't wanna lie. I understand what you saying and I fully agree with you. I think now is the time to change the narrative. Kids are growing up seeing us wearing these hair automatically to them it means that's where beauty is. I will change for the better."
"My goodness. Ntsiki almost always speaks my mind. I have a HUGE intellectual crush on this woman!"
"They are going to come here and say, ''Who said we don't like our hair?'' But deep down they know the reason behind them wearing weaves."
Some thought that she was throwing shade at Babalwa Mneno, who wears wigs but has been vocal about the Clicks advert.
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously reported that Bonang recently debuted gorgeous blonde hair but not everyone was loving her new look. Ntsiki Mazwai took to social media to take a not-so-subtle jab at the media mogul's gold locks.
Ntsiki Mazwai has always been an anti-weave and anti-wig girl. The poet made it clear that she did not approve of Bonang's hair, especially with the recent uproar after the retail store Clicks criticised ethnic hair.
Mazwai took to Twitter and posted:
"Lol, same people crying Clicks must fall YESTERDAY are TODAY hailing a blonde weave. I'm off Twitter today. You guys are a joke."
