Nomuzi Mabena has been the talk of the town this week since it was reported that she was leaving the CashTime stable.
Her followers were hit with a heavy blow when it was also confirmed that the entertainment personality would be leaving MTV Base Africa.
Nomuzi, who is steadily developing her rap career by featuring on various tracks like AKA’s Baddest remix and Rouge’s latest single, Mbongo Zaka, has been labelled as the young Brenda Fassie of this generation (Young Ma Brrr….) for some time now.

The term was first heard on DJ Vigilante’s single Pasop!, which was released in 2015.
But all of a sudden, in a twist of events, a number of Tweeps aren’t too happy with Nomuzi being compared to the legendary Brenda Fassie.
Numerous tweets have been used to troll Nomuzi, but fellow rapper Reason came to Nomuzi’s defence and explained what the Young Ma Brrr comparison actually means.
Reason broke down why people have taken the comparison too literally.
I think we took the "Brenda Fassie" references too literally tho.— AudioRD Out Now!!! (@ReasonHD) March 18, 2016
I mean, she could have meant it on a style or attitude level, yeah? or no?
In the states... rappers use drug dealers and rich people as "References" of ambition. She embraced a local one and now... Ku Ruff? damn!— AudioRD Out Now!!! (@ReasonHD) March 18, 2016
Calling myself the young "So & So" actually means i know I'm NOT a legend, but i wanna be one... like "So & SO". No? https://t.co/5XfYNgexS1— AudioRD Out Now!!! (@ReasonHD) March 18, 2016
On a lighter note, Reason also jokingly mentioned that he hopes Brenda Fassie's son, Bongani Fassie, does not diss Nomuzi because of the current debate.
