Anele Mdoda landed in hot water on social media for criticising Kelly Rowland’s looks without make-up

The fiasco started after TV personality Sizwe Dhlomo commented on his TL about how he believed that Kelly could be the best looking member of Destiny’s Child.

“Kelly Rowland could low key be the best looking one in DC…,” he wrote.

Anele, who isn’t shy to voice her opinion disagreed with Sizwe, so made her feelings known.


“Kelly looks amazing with make-up. Take that make-up off then it’s tickets. I have receipts.”

She then went on to share a picture of Kelly with make-up vs one of her without.

It’s also no secret that Anele is a huge Beyoncé fan

Anele’s comment backfired on her, with tweeps calling her out on it. Some users even accused her of criticising Kelly in the same manner that Phat Joe dissed her a few months ago, something she was fuming over.

In August, Phat Joe was put on blast after he questioned Anele’s place on the Miss SA judging panel.

At the time Phat Joe suggested that Anele was on the panel to “make up the numbers”… something that she didn’t take lightly and slammed him for.

Anele defended herself in the wake of the backlash, making it clear that she never said Kelly isn’t pretty, just that she doesn’t believe she’s the “prettiest” Destiny’s Child member.

She also tackled claims that she was in the same WhatsApp group as Phat Joe.
