Media personality and rapper Boity Thulo also does paid campaigns to secure some extra cash for herself just like any other celebrity. This time though, Mzansi women were not impressed with her latest paid campaign for Kotex.

@thicknsavage commented:

"The creative or marketing team must've been on childish mode because wtf is this."

"The song literally means the girlies are Ubers because you can only mount them if you have money. What does this have to do with menstruation?"

"Labantwana abo she can. Yhu ha! and everyone on the team agreed to this and thought it was such a great idea?!"

@Laeeqah7007 said:

"Please don’t make me switch to Always."
