Ntsiki Mazwai’s Twitter Explosives: Has A Line Been Crossed?

Ntsiki Mazwai’s explosive tweets and insults have become a common feature, but often overlooked in these outraged reaction is the element of intention. What is the poet’s end game?



“I think if you’re female and support ANCYL you’re an idiot”, jotted Ntsiki Mazwai in one of her latest digs. “You truly are. Women were not even considered for leadership.” It gets better. “ANC just wants your panties.” And that, ladies and gents, is the stuff we have become accustomed to with the controversial poet. At the same time, the constant rants are not really part of the furniture just yet, seeing she manages to execute a bigger blow every week with improved finesse.

Love her or hate her, Ntsiki Mazwai has become a constant topic on the soil of South African Twitter. And to say her radically transgressive and explosive tweets targeting famous personalities, their weaves, decisions to purchase cars they can’t afford, politicians et al are polarising, is somewhat of an understatement.

Oh no, not when she occasionally ends up making headlines for yielding crops in her growing bodycount of victims who have been dealt the hard lashes. Sometimes on Monday morning, sometimes on Wednesday afternoons –  there we go.

For these reasons, her claims of being a victim of cyberbullying were rubbished by many when she appeared on a television show to speak against the issue. It did not help much that she picked up a fight with Dineo Ranaka on the wee hours of a certain Monday, barely three days after lamenting the toxic state of the platform. Ranaka, who also pulled no punches, was called out for having several baby daddies.

Just last week, Mazwai found herself exactly where some people suspect she most envisions herself, the spotlight. The poet called out the ANC youth league for having only one woman in their 5 key positions.

While her tweets were greeted with ton of backlash, some commanded her bravery.

Indeed to many, her fearless advocacy is admirable. But to others like TV presenter Lerato Kganyago, there are better ways of being critical. One does not to ‘go there’.

But while many of us are still grappling with the issues she raised in these tweets, Mazwai has already moved on to bigger fish – minister of Sports and Recreation Fikile Mbalula. We are now learning that Mbalula has been organising girls for top politicians and he is promiscous.

“Mbalula has too much dirty laundry to be talking about me smoking ganja”, she charged. “Like the girls he organises for politicians”


Quite refreshing, this whole thing. Who wants to take a guess on who’s next in line to be lashed?  That remains to be seen.

What is far more interesting than that, though, is what her game plan really is. Is she simply an advocate for rights and self expression, or is she labouring hard to hog every possible headline by bullying a within an inch of their life to stay relevant?

Inside the Star-Studded Season 2 Teaser for Young, Famous & African

Look at the material!




Young and Famous Netflix season 2

Today, Netflix released the official teaser for the second season of the hit unscripted reality series, Young, Famous & African.

This season sees the return of Africa’s most famous and fabulous, as they embrace life and love on the richest square mile on the continent. This time,  however, a few new faces promise to make their mark in Africa’s most elite group.

Enter Bonang Matheba, South Africa’s entertainment industry darling whose presence certainly ruffles a few feathers;  Fantana, Ghanaian-American rapper and all-round superstar who quickly makes her mark on the group and Luis Munana from Namibia, former Big Brother Africa contestant and entrepreneur extraordinaire who brings the heat from the onset. 

The all-star cast of season one returns to face a lot of unanswered questions like what happened between Diamond Platnumz, Andile Ncube and Zari Hassan after the chance encounters between the trio in Diamond’s home,  and what is the status of everyone’s friendships after many arguments, loads of drama, and a pot stir or two from Khanyi Mbau and Nadia Nakai.  

Also worth looking out for is the appearance of model and socialite Sebabatso Mothibi, as well as the supermodel and actress, Rosette Ncwana, both of whom share a relationship history with Andile.

Given the drama and tension from the previous season, how does this play into the existing dynamic on the show?

Season two of Young, Famous & African launches only on Netflix on 19 May 2023 worldwide.

After suffering a number of production delays that spanned years, and that one unfortunate canning of the lost season, the Real Housewives of Johannesburg will be making a comeback on 19 May, 20:30 on 1Magic.

As Quench previously reported, it looks like glam Queen Mpho Mops will be a no-show for the looming season. Hers was an explosive departure, which followed the damning allegations of infidelity she faced at the season 2 reunion.

Fans will, however, be delighted to hear that Lethabo ‘LeJoy’ Mathabo and Lebo ‘Jojo’ Mokoena will be returning as seasoned gold-carrying full-time cast members in season 3. The two look to continue where they left off in 2019.

Among other pressing charges, Lebo might have to explain the alleged giant plastic cake at her wedding to Johannesburg businessman Lebo Gunguluza, from whom she is now divorced. Viewers will likely get front-row seats into her new life.

LeJoy might have to spill on what happened on that one fateful night at the Durban July.

… Or not. Based on the cast reveal, the returning girlies might have to clock in.

There are fresh faces on the cast, which will likely shift the dynamics and overall direction of the popular franchise.

Mamus Koka, Marelli Bentley, Nicole Watson and Thobekile Mdlalose will all be making their debuts as the new line-up.

The viral sensation is running up the numbers with her autumn release.




Within 7 business days of its splashy arrival, Uncle Waffles’ sophomore tape, ‘Asylum’, has reached gold status.

‘Asylum’ is Uncle Waffles’ sophomore tape.

The 7-track project, which contains the blockbuster viral sensation ‘yahyuppiyah, shipped over 12 500 units in its first week. The official single’s delayed landing is likely to have helped the EP to run up impressive numbers.

Ms. Zwane recruited over 17 collaborators for the project.

After all, the song has been the darling of Tik Tok challenges around the world, many of which relied on the audio snippet being circulated without an official release.

Spanning just over 38 minutes in duration, the EP plays up to the disc jockey’s reputation for banging out addictive hooks with massive social media appeal. Working with 17 collaborators, Waffles confidently delivers her own take on Amapiano’s increasingly fluid soundscape.

The project arrives as the 23-year-old takes her tour to the US, where she’s covering venues in several states. This past weekend, Uncle Waffles made her debut at Coachella.
