Socialite Babalwa Mneno took to social media to implore the arts and culture minister to give the internationally recognized South African DJ Black Coffee,  a diplomatic passport.

Another social media user was not sure if Mneno knew that a diplomatic passport was not a status symbol and gave her a reality check.

Geez, people can't we all get along?

Babalwa learned from another user that a diplomatic passport did not guarantee that queues would vanish.

“My last visit to one African country, I was made to wait until they serviced their 73 people who were coming from Addis Ababa despite them having a section that deals with the diplomats.”

The tweep wrote about his experience in another country. She replied that SA celebs who represent South Africa are a brand that needs special recognition.

It does seem like Babalwa was a little random with her appreciation tweet for Black Coffee and Bonang but is she on to something with this anti-queue stance and celebrities getting special treatment when they're 'national treasures' like those two are?

This isn't the first time she's come to someone's defense. The last individual she was showing love to was Burna Boy.

Maybe, don't be so quick to judge Babalwa - we all need friends like her, who are willing to bat for you and want you to have nice things. We see you and we see the vision, Babalwa.
