Ntsiki Mazwai fires back after her ‘humiliating’ Trending SA interview


Controversial poet Ntsiki Mazwai has fired back at the presenters and producers of SABC 3 talk show, “Trending SA”. This comes after an interview this week in which she felt she was attacked by the show’s presenters.

Viewers of the show, which recently went through a rebranding that saw MaBlerh, Elma Smit and Refiloe Mpakanyane replace Pabi Moloi, Kuli Roberts, Nina Hastie and Musa Mthombeni as presenters, agreed with Ntsiki.

Many viewers tweeted their frustrations about what they labelled an attack on the star when the show’s presenters took her to task on whether she was a Twitter troll. They also went into the Twitter archives and dug up tweets about Ntsiki which viewers said were nasty and unnecessary.

After the interview, Ntsiki took to Twitter to express how she regretted agreeing to do the interview.

“I can’t believe this TV interview put me in such a horrible space on my birthday week…. Like Wow. You guys just want me to be miserable nje. It’s amazing. SA media is amazing. To call me all the way there just to try break my spirit”, she tweeted.

She went on to say that she was humiliated for ratings.

“It’s amazing how tv producers don’t mind humiliating someone for ratings. I wasn’t even paid for this shoot. Thank you to all of you who came to my defense. I’m sad for the new presenters who just tainted their energy for cheap publicity that didn’t even work.”

She also apologised to her fans who she said have to continuously watch her being bullied.
