Moja Love is no stranger to negative reviews but Ntsiki Mazwai, who used to present a show for them, is calling the channel out in a big way.


Ntsiki Mazwai, hosted a talk show on Moja Love called Show Me Love and managed to serve a full season. However, she's not in any way more loyal to the brand as a result of her time with them and during a Twitter exchange with a user she even went as far as claiming that "Moja Love did nothing for her."

She recently took to social media to express her disappointment at the black-owned TV channel and she didn't mince her words. The poet accused the channel of encouraging 'domestic violence.'

This comes after the trailer for Mzansi's contentious couple Babes Wodumo and Mampintsha's reality show, 'Impilo: Mampintsha WestInk caused quite a stir on social media. Ntsiki, amongst many others, slammed the show and the channel.

The couple whose relationship has been marred with controversy has been dominating headlines for the longest time and this show was meant to take us behind the scenes of that.
   
Shocking and disturbing scenes from the show left many uneasy at the abuse which comes from both ends. Ntsiki, being the straight shooter that she is, went on a mini-rant to lambast the channel for allowing such content to be aired.

She tweeted; "Dear Moja Love You can do better than this. You're better than this. Do better."

The Qhawe singer expressed her feelings and said she expected the channel to uplift black people and break negative stereotypes.

"Here we are with our black-owned TV channel and all we can do with it is promote domestic violence ... We have failed ourselves. Women are dying daily in South Africa but here we are giving a platform to celebrate gender-based violence ... Wow, I don't understand the maths. I expected excellence from a black-owned network ... I guess I was wrong," she tweeted.

When a twitter user asked her whether she thinks her show also never added any value, she laughed it off and agreed.

The channel has denied promoting violence in their media statement they released, informing viewers that Impilo will not be aired. They wrote "we do not condone any violence and take all cases of assault very seriously...The stories are a reflection of the issues which our communities confront daily."
