Simphiwe Dana got dragged on social media after she revealed that she makes her nannies wash her clothes and white linen with their own hands. The singer shared that she only lets her nannies wash her kids' clothes with a washing machine.
The musician took to Twitter on Saturday, 30 January to respond to a tweet by radio personality Anele Mdoda. Anele had shared that her "deputy nanny" ruined her dress by washing it in the washing machine. Anele posted:
"Deputy nanny ruined my dress wayifaka in the washing machine with colors. I am defeated. It's so difficult to not make this about money but it is. That dress cost money and now it's ruined. I wore it once. My tummy is runny."
Simphiwe took to Anele's comment section on the micro-blogging app and shared her "first rule" for new nannies. She said:
"First rule for new nannies, my clothes and any white linen must be hand washed. Anything else, including kids clothes can be washing machined."
The star's comment rubbed many tweeps the wrong way. They shared that she's wrong by making her nannies wash her linen with their own hands.
"Linen with hands!"
"Clothes Yes but Linen yhooo!"
The songstress took to Twitter after seeing that her tweet rubbed many the wrong way and explained that she also washes her linen with her hands. She said she also doesn't use the washing machine.
"I see some are touched by my white linen tweet. I’ll even wash it myself. Iphuma imdaka kwiwashing machine. Plus I pay people well for their services. I don’t exploit them."

"Xa sitheth’ inyani our president is treating us like children. He could have given us a week to prepare ourselves for Level 3."
A tweep @Shoes0613 took to the star's comment section to disagree with her. @Shoes0613 asked Simphiwe:
"If I may ask,what do we need to be ready for Level 3?"
The artist shared that she wanted to do grocery shopping first before she could be ready for Level 3 lockdown. She replied to the tweep:
"Mainly grocery shopping. Also to travel to our homes were we visiting others, especially in different provinces."
