Ntsiki Mazwai is not happy that Unathi Nkayi is still getting gigs after she reportedly falsely accused Sizwe Dhlomo of verbally abusing her recently. The opinionated GBV activist wants the Idols SA judge to be "cancelled".
The poet is angry because Unathi was announced as the host of the Festive Get Together in The Life Artois after she was fired from Kaya 959. The decision to give Unathi the show rubbed Ntsiki up the wrong way because she almost ended Sizwe's career and reputation "in an act of malice".
Unathi has been trending on social media since it emerged that she allegedly tried to get Sizwe Dhlomo fired from Kaya 959. She reportedly accused him of verbally abusing her before the station management showed her the door.
Taking to Twitter, Ntsiki said women who lie about being abused must be dealt with legally and accordingly, just like the system deals with men who have been accused of GBV.

According to OkMzansi, she asked:
"And you give her a TV show for little girls to know that you can lie about men and be rewarded for your lie? For real?"
Tweeps took to Ntsiki's comment section to share their thoughts on her post. Check out some of their comments below:
"How is this issue really related to GBV? Someone please educate me here. Did she lie about being violated or abused?"
"She said he was verbally abusive towards her, yes."
"I'm okay with her getting a gig... so many accused men are also getting gigs and living their best lives regardless of the accusations so nje... as bad as it was I'm not mad at this... there has been worse."
"How many gigs/jobs etc did Sjava/Fresh/Euphonik lose after those rape accusations? How many did Somizi lose after that abuse accusation? And Kagiso? He didn’t even assault anyone and Outsurance dropped him like a bad habit. What’s special about Unathi?"
"The silence of women is too loud, regarding women who make false accusations against men."
