Nandi Madida is at the centre of an ongoing Twitter debate which was triggered by her 'motivational' tweets.

Her attempt at motivating young people took a left turn when she attached life's achievements to age.

It is without a doubt that she has achieved many things in her life. Not many 30 something year olds can afford to buy their kid land to build a farm. So many people thought Nandi was speaking from a point of privilege.

Even though the songstress and business woman's intentions were good, majority argue that her wording should have been different as she has now discouraged a bunch of 30-year-olds who have not yet reached their goals. 

Even though her message clearly is directed at a certain group of people who are coming from well-off families and have all the luxuries in the world, some argue that her placing an age stamp to how life should go, reduces the quality and meaning to her message.

"I always say this to young people who work in my company.The ages 18-25 yrs are so critical. If u waste that time being a rebel wasting ur parents money, being cool, hanging around wrong circles etc. U waste so much time & before u know it u’re 30 with nothing to show for your life," she wrote.

The 32-year-old then adds that her being disciplined and listening to her parents got her to where she is currently.

"life goes by so quickly! Every year counts.. minimize your regrets and do the right thing. Take charge of your life!" she concluded.

Her message clearly landed as an insult to majority of Twitter and she sparked a massive debate, swiftly taking her to the top of the trends list.

Here are some of the arguments:
