Afriforum vs Ntsiki Mazwai

Afriforum vs Ntsiki Mazwai

May 31, 2019, 03:12 PM

South African lobby group, Afriforum has just declared war on the feistiest woman in the country: Ntsiki Mazwai. Do they know what they've just gotten themselves into?

We've seen many beefs over the years; Cassper vs AKA, Pearl vs Bonang, Shimza vs Prince Kaybee, but this might just be the most explosive clash yet (can you hear the boxing bell?). In the one corner, we have one of the most radical Afrikaans-led political body, Afriforum; and in the other corner, we have the polar opposite, the epitome of extreme blackness and wokeness, Nontsikelelo Mazwai. You're going to need popcorn for this one!

It all popped off on social media after Afriforum released a statement initially condemning Multichoice for their decision to ban Steve Hofmeyr's content from their platforms. You may recall that Multichoice launched #MuteSteveHofmeyr last month after caving to increased public pressure to boycott the Afrikaans musician for his controversial views and comments.

On Thursday, Afriforum issued a statement that basically said "OK Shap Multichoice. But you must ban other racists too!" and guess who they decided to come after?

ICYMI: Ntsiki Mazwai is NOT a fan of president Cyril Ramaphosa!

Perhaps they weren't aware of Ntsiki Mazwai's social media bravado but the poet and muso was never going to take this lying down. She immediately replied by declaring #HandsOffNtsikiMazwai before leaving the lobby group to her legion of followers but not before she could issue a few choice words:

Multichoice has yet to respond to Afriforum's claims although we are not sure that this dispute will soften their stance on their Steve Hofmeyr ban.

As for Ntsiki vs Afriforum, we have a feeling that this particular battle is only beginning. I don't know about you but I'm worried that these two extreme personalities could result in an actual civil war. What do you think?
