What would the year be without some celeb feuds to spice things up? Many of the celebs went toe-to-toe with each other because of some misunderstandings. 

2019 saw many ZAlebs airing each other’s dirty laundry. 

Lady Zamar vs Sjava   

Probably a scandal that got the internet divided and people in their feels - especially because it erupted during a time where SA was (still is) wounded by a number of cases of femicide and abuse. What ticked many people off is the fact that most of Sjava’s music advocated for women to be treated right as he addresses some social ills on them.

In a twitter thread Lady Zamar settled a lot of things surrounding  their ‘affair’ including the fact that Sjava is married. The most shocking allegation of them all was that Lady Zamar was abused by Sjava when they dated for about two years. 

Sjava denied the claims and he opened a case against Zamar.

AKA vs Burna Boy

The ‘xenophobic’ attacks that hit the nation earlier this month did not sit well with many nationals outside SA. What vexed many on socials was AKA’s tweets that were misinterpreted, resulting in Nigerian artists slamming him for promoting hatred towards foreign nationals. Not taking anything laying down, AKA fought back and things escalated to a point where he and Burna Boy exchanged some nasty tweets. Burna even threatened physical violence and told Supa Mega to beef up security. 

In his deleted tweets, Burna further said he will never set foot in SA however a few months later, he was announced as the headlining act at the Africans Unite Concert. This time, a host of Mzansi tweeps joined AKA's army to restrict Burna from setting foot in the country. And they succeeded, but AKA was not done. In his verse for Nkalakatha remix, he shaded Burna Boy along with Julius Malema and all of Mzansi celebrities who kept quiet during the time when his life was threatened. 

Babes Wodumo vs Mampintsha 

Prayers were sent out to Babes to help her escape an abusive relationship after a video in which Mampintsha was seen hitting her. The abuse was first brought to light by Masechaba Ndlovu on her radio show, however she received some backlash for meddling in people’s business and backing Babes into a corner. 

Shimora alleged that Babes had been cheating on hum and a ‘drunk’ babes fought back with words, which resulted in the physical assault. It got messier when Babes opened a case against Mampintsha, then dropped the charges. Moments later Shimora followed suit. This situation had Mzansi drinking their water and minding their own business. It was a mess, fam!

Anele Mdoda vs Twitter

This had to be one of the most hilarious scandals of the year. This, according to the tweets shared, and not to mention Anele trending for what seemed to be eternity. The radio and tv personality commented on Sizwe Dlomo’s tweet where he said Kelly Rowland is the prettiest member in Destiny’s Child. Anele disagreed with Sizwe and called her (Kelly) ugly

That response obvious did not land because Mzansi Black Twitter came after Anele and started making comparisons between the two women. 

It got worse came when American twitter caught wind of the tweet and called Anele ‘Pumba’. The thick-skinned Anele laughed along with Mzansi and to take things further, her ‘fiance’ trolled her and cooked ‘Pumba’ for dinner.
