‘We chose the wrong Mandela as president’

Put Ntsiki Mazwai in an empty room, and she’ll probably still manage to start an argument.

This time, the outspoken artist is focusing her wrath on the late Nelson Mandela, calling him a “chauvinist” and “bitter”.

Adding her two cents to a discussion about Winnie Mandela and the Qunu residence, Mazwai wrote: “We chose the wrong Mandela as president.......Madiba was ALWAYS weaker than Winnie.

“Nelson Mandela is no hero to me.....just a chauvinist who oppressed Madikizela.

“Winnie made the Mandela name an international name. ....and he was too bitter to give her a simple house? Says a lot about him

“I resent Madiba because of what he did to Winnie. He was so bitter and wanted to humiliate her with this will. What an ungrateful bitter man.”

Bitterness is probably something Mazwai can relate to. She’s is South Africa’s version of American rapper Azaelia Banks, who lashes out at everybody in an attempt to stay relevant. Already this year she was involved in an ugly spat with recording artist Simphiwe Dana. Mazwai seemed to suggest that Dana had slept her way to success, and a court case might be on the cards.

Last year, Mazwai attacked Stoan Seate, who has a child with her more famous sister Thandiswa. Mazwai claimed Stoan was a deadbeat dad, although some started to question the source of all her bitterness. In an earlier tweet, Mazwai confessed to having had a crush on Stoan before her sister got in on the act.
