- Ntsiki Mazwai has shared her opinion on the ongoing US elections and drama surrounding it
- The controversial poet has slammed Africans for their interest in foreign affairs when other countries don't care about Africa
- Mzansi social media users were divided in their responses to her comments
Ntsiki Mazwai has called South Africans out who have taken an interest in the current US elections. According to the poet, America does not care about our politics so we should not care about theirs.
She accused those who are following the US polls as trying to look intelligent and being "clever blacks". Taking to her Twitter account, she posted:
"Clinton, Obama, Trump never made a difference in my life... So I will rather watch deputy Americans involved in this election topic. Because I know Americans don't even know EFF, so why would I bother with their politics? To sound like a clever black??"
Her post was met with mixed reactions from social media users. Some agreed with her, like Twitter user Maphosa who said:
"Staying in your lane is power."
"They rather discuss foreign politics because they can't tackle home-ground politics."
Others, however, vehemently disagreed with her logic. Twitter user cele_lihle said:
"If you think that this election doesn't affect you as a South African, you're in for a rude awakening."
"That sounds foolish. It's okay, there are those moments."
"US politics doesn't affect the US only, but the entire global community. Anything that affects the value of the rand is worth watching. We can't be that myopic now."
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za had previously reported that Ntsiki Mazwai has shared her thoughts about the scandals surrounding media personality Katlego Maboe.
After new reports emerged that the TV presenter allegedly slept with another woman, Ntsiki took to social media to comment on the matter. The opinionated poet accused Maboe of being a sex addict due to his alleged behaviour. She tweeted:
“Messy. This is a sex addict.”
Social media users had divided opinions over her comment. While some agreed with her, others thought she was crossing a line by making that assumption.
