Nsiki Mazwai takes on DJ Zinhle – ‘selling weaves is no different to selling drugs’
Controversial poet Ntsiki Mazwai has taken aim at DJ Zinhle after the launch of Hair Majesty.
Ntsiki has been outspoken about local celebrity brands, especially the likes of Boity and Bonang Matheba, for their respective alcohol brands.
Now, she has taken aim at the “Umlilo” hitmaker, following the launch of her Peruvian Wig line.
Taking to Twitter on Thursday, she started her rant by saying that people glamorise celebrities, selling them alcohol and now “foreign hair”.
She continued: “Weaves and Booze. Nice work leaders. You make the youth focus on weaves and booze. Levels.”
She ended her rant by comparing the sale of weaves and wig to that of selling drugs.
“Selling weaves is no different to selling drugs. We are dealing with an addiction.”
Tweeps weighed in on her statement and shared their views on the comparison.
The “My Name Is” hitmaker’s new hair brand is a line of premium Peruvian Lace wigs and HD frontals.
Hair Majesty adds to the long list of entrepreneurial endeavours which include taking over as chief executive of the international sparkling wine brand Boulevard Rosé.
Also, the founder of Era by DJ Zinhle, an accessory and eyewear brand and co-owning a home ware and lounge brand, Jiyane Atelier.
This past weekend, the mother of one teased her 3.8 million followers by posting a short clip, giving a clue about her new product.
DJ Zinhle said that the idea of launching a hair range came from a specific feeling she experienced every time she had a wig installed.
She went on to compare the selling of weaves and wigs to distributing illegal substances, saying as a society we are dealing with an “addiction” to buying hair.
Though Ntsiki had her supporters in the comments, many users hit back at her sentiments, saying DJ Zinhle has done no wrong to warrant her criticisms.
