If there is one ZAleb who doesn't mind being in the limelight or ruffling people's feathers, it is Ntsiki Mazwai. With over 20 years of experience in the music industry, she has seen it all and done it all. She has been around to see careers flourish and some crash and burn while still remaining relevant and especially controversial.

The poet, songwriter and musician most famous for her outspoken thoughts that are regularly shared on Twitter as well as her podcast, where she hosts her regular talk shows. Ntsiki Mazwai is always mixed up in some controversy because she always has an opinion about everything happening in current news or mainstream media, which many people do not accept. She has her ways of telling the truth without holding anything back.

These ZAlebs are just some of the many who have been at the receiving end of her insults.

DJ Zinhle

Kairo's mom is such an unproblematic queen. Last month, when she announced yet another business venture into her long list of income streams, Ntsiki came in and burst her bubble. When the Umlilo hit-maker shared that she had released 15 Peruvian weaves, she was applauded by many of her industry colleagues, but not Ntsiki. In a series of tweets, Ntsiki revealed that she is highly unimpressed by DJ Zinhle's choices to sell weaves and alcohol; saying it is detrimental to the youth and Africans as a whole.

Imagine...Your celebs glamorize and sell booze and foreign hair to you. Sies man. When whites told you, you look like monkeys you believed them.... That's why you're doing your best to look more like them and less like monkeys akere? Selling weaves is no different to selling drugs.
We are dealing with an addiction.
Mohale Motaung

The poet and sangoma in training is not your average 'troll' and no matter the status a celebrity has, she simply does not care. We already know that she is not Somizi Mhlongo's biggest fan, but now his husband Mohale Motaung-Mhlongo has been added to the list. Ntsiki recently came for Mohale's bank balance, claiming that the rich life he is living is a facade.

Someone must tell the beautiful Mohale that acting rich is not gonna be sustainable. Or maybe they were married in community of property 

Thuso Mbedu

You can go to Hollywood, but Ntsiki will still drag you from there. As excited as we all are to see Thuso in action, after scoring bigs; including playing lead on The Underground Railroad, Ntsiki decide to go in the opposite direction when Mzansi was celebrating. She blatantly said that she feels as though Thuso is cooning. In other words, she is taking such roles which centres around slavery, to appeal to the American audience.

To be accepted as an actor in America, you have to play the slave, basically cooning. Holliwood gives the most hype to black women who play slaves...We are nothing but slave porn to them...


Like everyone else, poor Proverb didn't see this one coming, when Ntsiki Mzwai not only said Proverb is no better than the late ProKid when it comes to rapping. Ntsiki took it an extra mile and threw insults at Proverb saying he does not stand for anything.

"Proverb has NOTHING on pro. Rapping in English always excites shallow minds. You’re clearly not that deep babe. Proverb doesn’t even stand for anything,"

Connie Ferguson

Poor Connie, or should we say rich Connie also took some unsuspecting shots from Ntsiki Mazwai, after Ntsiki made it clear that the entertainment industry mogul has zero talent. Tweeps were engaged in talks about Mzansi's talented on-screen couples and mentioned Rapulana Seiphemo and Connie Ferguson, to which Ntsiki made sure her comments were clear.

"Coming back to my Twitter, I don’t think Connie Ferguson is a phenomenal actress. I think she is a pretty girl who is likeable and it’s fine. I don’t take anything away from her but I don’t think she’s an amazing actress,"


It is no big secret that Ntsiki Mazwai doesn't like Queen B as well, she has made spicy remarks about her on many occasions and isn't shy to do it when Tweeps are busy celebrating Bonangs many successes. The poet and musician took direct jabs at Bonang and questioned her 'mogul' status after the launch of the newest offering from her House of BNG range, the BNG Nectar.

""It baffles me how you can be a business mogul but your contribution is posting pics in sunglasses and outfits.... But you never post entrepreneurial posts that a person in your position would. If the journey was real."


These two have a long and spicy history, both of them equally veterans in the entertainment industry, they have never really gotten along, which might be more of Ntsiki's fault than it is SomGaGa's. Ntsiki was up very early in the morning to drag a probably sleeping and very rich Somizi for reasons only known to her.

""Lol it's cute if u think people like Somizi will make history.... Maybe the old Somizi who had a craft. But the new Somizi is just gonna be rich in this lifetime but won't make history. Money and wealth doesn't make history unless you CREATED something."

We could compile a book of all the people that have felt Ntsiki's controversial remarks but we would probably run out of space. Ntsiki needs to rest! Rest!
