- Kuli Roberts believes that celebrities in Mzansi should remain humble despite their big wins overseas
- The media personality was congratulating Thuso Mbedu on her success but also threw some major shade
- Social media users joined in on the conversation and some think that people celebrate things differently
Media personality Kuli Roberts is happy that Thuso Mbedu is going to be working with Viola Davis and admires her humble nature. As much as Kuli is happy for Thuso, she also took the opportunity to slam celebrities who don't know how to celebrate their wins in private.
"Thuso works quietly, ngesafa ngabanye. There would be posters about every interview and trips to the toilet," said Kuli.
Although Kuli didn't name anyone, fans already had an idea of who she was talking about. Nomzamo Mbatha has been doing the most in Hollywood and has been very vocal about her success, I mean who wouldn't be?
Kuli, however, doesn't agree with bragging and thinks that celebrities who are doing well should be very private about the work they are doing. The best revenge is your paper, as Beyonce says.
Check out the reactions from social media users below:
"We can still celebrate people though without shaming their peers. People are different in general and their differences do not make them any less or more important."
"People celebrate their achievements differently & I think we should respect the way they choose to celebrate."
"They’re in a competition and each one wants to stand out and prove how popular they’re overseas."
Briefly News previously reported that Kuli Roberts doesn't like comparisons when It comes to TV presenters. Mzansi media personality Kuli Roberts doesn't want fans to compare presenters to each other in the game.
Kuli used to be the host of Trending SA with a few other celebrities and a few fans seem to want her back on the programme. A social media user @Lawrence_Manaka tweeted that he only watched the show because of Kuli, Nina Hastie and Pabi Moloi.
He doesn't seem to be impressed with the new panel on Trending SA. Kuli quickly responded to the social media user and said she doesn't like the comparison because she respects the current presenters who are holding the show down.
