Supa Mega expressed that Mzansi is a "weird" country because on some days he is deemed "black enough" to speak about certain issues affecting black people in our country.

"Some days like today I’m black enough to speak out about issues. Other days I’m a coloured this and a coloured that. Weird f*ck*n’ country we living in."

The Fela In Versace hitmaker's post sparked a heated debate on his timeline. Tweeps took to his comment section and shared mixed reactions on his opinion.

@TBlacklantern commented:

"Coloured people wanna preserve their identity as being coloured so don't try and take it away from them by calling them black. Let them be, let them be coloured."

"The so-called coloured word to define as a race should be banned in SA. Mixed people in SA should identify as black."
