Controversy about Rich Mnisi’s prices

The biggest online uproar was when in 2021 Rich Mnisi put up a Xibelani skirt on his website worth a whopping R59 999. The Xibelani skirt is a common outfit among the Tsonga women from the Limpopo province.
Tweeps were not impressed with this price and they went on to criticize with one tweep pointing out that the price of Rich Mnisi’s Xibelani skirt was more than that of a 2nd hand Toyota Avanza which reportedly goes for about R 57,000.
Other tweeps, however, acknowledged the prices but advised disgruntled tweeps to move on to other brands that they can afford and leave Rich Mnisi alone. Black Coffee also came to Rich Mnisi’s defense saying that Rich Mnisi’s outfits are worth every cent.
