One show that has viewers riled up every week is Mnakwethu, the polygamy-themed show is yet to be accepted by some viewers...who seem to watch it every week in any case. The anger this week was about the husband trying to take his wife's friend as a second wife.

Usually, the anger comes from viewers labelling the show sexist and humiliating for women, some Tweeps have labelled the practise of polygamy as backwards and degrading for women in general. Last month, self-proclaimed feminist, Simphiwe Dana took to Tweeter to write scathing remarks about the show and even went as far as saying Musa Mseleku has a small penis.

Another ZAleb, Ayanda Borotho also expressed her disgruntled views about the show in a lengthy Instagram post. The backlash forced Mzansi Magic to issue a statement to defend its seemingly, infamous show and the host Musa Mseleku.

Afterwards, the Musa Mseleku also issued a statement to defend the show and later expected an apology from Simphiwe Dana's offensive remarks about him. The songstress and staunch feminist eventually issued an apology for her Tweets and she squashed any looming legal repercussions she might have faced.

We wonder what next weeks anger about the controversial show will be about.
