Performing the lit track Ntyilo Ntyilo by Rethabile Khumalo ft Master KG, S’22kile changed up the lyrics a little, which did not sit well with Unathi.

Making her displeasure known, Unathi made a slip-up herself when she delivered her disapproval in Sesotho and did not quite get it right herself.

Social media went crazy after the debacle went down with many shading Unathi for her apparent ‘hypocritical’ ways. Unathi might as well have buried herself after this one, lol.
