Thousands of fans and high-profile personalities have strongly defended Nomzamo Mbatha after Ntsiki Mazwai slated her ‘activism’ Cosmopolitan magazine cover

The commotion started after Nomzamo shared a screenshot of her gracing the magazine’s first ‘activism’ issue, in celebration of Women’s Month. It featured Nomzamo and other like-minded women for their charity work.

Ntsiki, who never minces her words, questioned why Nomzamo was labelled an activist.

“Nomzamo keeps being positioned as an activist when? When has she ever represented anything beyond her looks?,” Ntsiki said.

The poet claimed that it was an insult to activists who ‘selflessly’ committed themselves to making a difference.

“There are people who put themselves on the line for justice to prevail. People who have sacrificed. Real activists,” she added.

Ntsiki’s comments backfired as fans weighed in on the situation that went viral on Twitter

Nomzamo responded to one follower who insinuated that she was paid for appearing at charity events.
