Nowadays you don't need to hold your tongue for no one, especially with platforms like Twitter at your disposal.You can literally whip your phone out, open the app and flip the zap at anyone who may have rubbed you off the wrong way or if you simply just want to vent for a simple 220 characters.
However, Twitter can be filled with a whole bunch of unnecessary noise, but when we see certain people vent with a valid reason we listen.
This Tweet by Phila Madlingozi is a topic that has been spoken about a lot behind these entertainment closed-doors. Glad to see him and a few other artists speak the truth.
The entertainment industry is too saturated now. It used to be a pool of talented bad asses now we have all sorts of chancers. Anyone can be a musician/actor these days. Our industry is being polluted with half baked noise. Artists afraid to speak up coz of fear of alienation. pic.twitter.com/5QK6wu82Wl— BAWO (@PhilaMadlingozi) January 7, 2018

Then there was TV producer - Olwethu whom some may remember from his days as a commentator on Vuzu's 10 over 10.
Olwethu had a few choice words about the idea of following celebrities and thinking that they are entitled to us as the public.
1/3 Stop feeling entitled to celebrities. They owe you NOTHING. You’re no better than people who go to Home Affairs, get offended by a consultant then say “I’m your boss. My tax pays your job.” That’s a bullshit mentality. You act like celebs just get followers doing anything...— Olwee (@Olwee) January 9, 2018
We can't lie, Olwethu was tweeting the gospel here. We do tend to expect too much from our faves.
2/3Celebrities act, they sing, DJ- whatever they do. They entertain you as you have paid to watch them entertain you. At work you get paid and must deliver. Anything they do after they delivered entertainment is up to them same way you go home and do what you want after work!— Olwee (@Olwee) January 9, 2018
This hit home
3/3 The fact that celebs are even on social media is a favor to let you in further than what you have paid to see, which is the entertainment. No celeb owes you a favor because they’re going beyond their call of duty!!!— Olwee (@Olwee) January 9, 2018
And then he just had to end it off with this spicy outro. We were never ready. Olwethu is part of a TV production team that has produced some of your favourite local reality shows like Living The Dream With Somizi and Being Bonang.
Now let me go make some bomb shows featuring your faves that will never follow you back.🙃🙃🙃— Olwee (@Olwee) January 9, 2018
