Mbola explained that Smith then went to her YouTube to draw more than inspiration from her content. Smith has announced that she has done no such and that she had never even laid eyes on Mbola’s work, but Mzansi investigated and found Smith’s comment on one of Mbola’s earlier works.

"Dear Onezwa Mbola,
