It's never a dull day on Twitter as entertainment commentator Phil Mphela dragged MultiChoice, Mzansi Magic and Musa Mseleku's family.

Noting that the family does pull in great numbers for their hit reality show, Uthando Nesthembu, Mphela said the family getting too many shows will harm the company in future.

He said the family uses Mzansi Magic and MultiChoice as if it's their YouTube channel.

Mphela tweeted:

"Someone at MultiChoice must have a relationship with the Mselekus. Mzansi Magic and its sister channels have become Musa Mseleku and his family’s personal YouTube-esque channel. It’s like The Kardashians and E! back in the day, and we know how that killed that channel."

Mphela continued by saying the family's show, Uthando Nesthembu, pulls in the big numbers, making it a success. However, their other shows have failed.

He questioned why the family continues to bag many other shows:

"Begs the question… why then does the family keep getting shows. What’s next? A show about Musa Mseleku’s siblings or pets?"

According to TimesLIVE, the Mseleku children have bagged their own reality show, Izingane Zesthembu. This is a spin-off from the hit series, Uthando Nesthembu.

Mphela said in his rant the family is getting preferential treatment, questioning their value in the entertainment industry.

"The preferential treatment the Mselekus are being showered with is fast becoming suspiciously untoward. What is it about Musa and his family that warrants the commission of so many shows related to or featuring someone from the family? What’s that unique entertainment value?"

Mzansi defends Musa Mseleku and family

@thato_stalion said:

"Somizi was all over at some point but you have never made a thread criticising MultiVhoice, why?"

@Mzulu__ shared:

"But Somizi yena, we cool with him, right?"

"I beg to differ, Kings Of Maskandi is a good show, but won't pull big numbers coz of Zulu content... the rest of these other shows it's a NO! MaKhumalo only should do them, not MaCele and MaYeni."
