Just when the country was reeling over Pearl Thusi, trust Ntsiki Mazwai to share a few thoughts or two.

Mazwai is notorious for reigning on everyone's parade and tells things like they are, irregardless of who she offends in the process. This time, amidst Pearl's international domination, she had to drag Trevor Noah and Sho Madjozi in the mix. All because of the colour of their skin.

Colourism in the industry has been widely debated amongst people, where many share the sentiments that light skinned people's opportunities are most vast than darker skinned people.

According to Ntsiki, ZAlebs such as Sho Madjozi, Trevor Noah, Pearl Thusi and American superstar Beyonce's success is because of their light complexion.

“I can’t help but notice that Sho Majozi, Pearl Thusi and Trevor Noah...like Beyoncé are all light skinned. As in our best musician, actress and comic...this is it,” she tweeted.

She then asked her followers whether Mzansi has brewed international stars who are dark in complexion. Confused at how Ntsiki overlooked Miss Universe Zozibini Tunzi, DJ Maphorisa, John Kani and Siya Kolisi, amongst others, tweeps concluded that it was just a direct personal attack towards those celebs.
