- Kuli said that those spouting negativity seemed envious of the winner and Vuyo did not seem too thrilled with the result
Hannes Van Der Walt was announced as the new Mr South Africa and Mzansi took to social media to congratulate the winner after the results were revealed via a virtual ceremony.
As is always the case with the internet, there were some positive comments and some negative. Some celebs also weighed-in on the victory, specifically Vuyolwethu Ngcukana and Kuli Roberts.
Kuli tweeted that she thought those being negative were simply envious of the new Mr SA and hating for that reason. Vuyo took a different approach and posted a meme that implied he thought someone else should have won the crown.
Kuli wrote in her tweet:
"I feel as if you lot are jealous of Mr SA"
Vuyo posted his caption over a meme of Nicki Minaj looking sceptical:
"That’s our Mr. SA, for like the whole country?"
To which one tweep replied:
@lekhelebana1: "Port Nolloth to Richard’s Bay, Musina to Mosel bay, Cape Town to Phalabora and from Vryburg to Port Sajonisi. The whole khawontry he represents hahahaha"
