Bonnie Mbuli deactivated her Twitter following a brief twar with Sho Madjozi over the weekend.
This comes after the BET award winner Sho Madjozi, spoke up against xenophobia and gender-based violence amid the brutal deaths of young women and attacks on foreign nationals in and around Gauteng’s major cities, last week.
In a Twitter thread Sho Madjozi, real name Maya Wegerif, addressed the plight of bad leadership and crime in South Africa, to which her fans commended her for her well thought-out statement. However, Mbuli questioned the statements, alleging that the rapper's statements were not her own words.
Taking to Twitter, Mbuli wrote: “It’s so obvious when your mainstream faves are tweeting think threads on current issues written by their PR."
She didn’t stop there, responding directly to one of Sho Madjozi’s tweet, she said: What about the fact that these are not your words?
The "John Cena" star, didn’t hesitate, she wrote: “You have to reflect on why you think a young African woman can’t write for herself. Don’t know if it’s internalized racism sexism or what? I have a degree in African studies and creative writing, and also you don’t know me, so this is very weird.”
You have to reflect on why you think a young African woman can’t write for herself. Don’t know if it’s internalized racism sexism or what?

Mzansi didn't seem impressed by Mbuli's nasty comments. Fans of Sho Madjozi had a field day on Twitter, roasting Mbuli. She seemingly couldn't handle the cyber bullying, she deactivated her account.
I wonder what would make Bonnie Mbuli believe that a uni grad (MA) in social sciences wouldn't be able to opine on social issues independently? She says Madjozi is a "mainstream fave". Sho didn't change who she is to suit our tastes. She's a rebel, not mainstream!— Phindile Kunene (@kunenephindz) September 8, 2019
Imagine trending at Number 1 as a Mature Black South African Woman for bullying a Young Black South African Woman who happened to have tweeted relevant content regarding the State of our Nation!— Ms. Africa 🌻 (@refilweafrica) September 8, 2019

What Bonnie Mbuli said to Sho Madjozi is so condescending, I don’t think we’re fully comprehending it.— Zanele Madiba (@MissMadiba) September 8, 2019
Big sis is legit saying Sho Madjozi doesn’t have the range. Black woman to woman, I’m touched! 💔
According to uGogo Bonnie Mbuli, Sho Madjozi can’t think on her own. Just when everyone is busy dealing with women violence, BOOM there’s women to women hate. Ayi Madodo pic.twitter.com/87PPUXL4te— Man's Not Barry Roux (@AdvBarryRoux) September 8, 2019
You are slowly turning into the bitter aunty. Sho Madjozi bothers nobody but here you are. Are you jealous because you are not a mainstream fav? Like what is your problem lady? Come on naw, stobbit🙄— Hahani wa Mikhenso (@Miss_Pearliey) September 8, 2019
Bonnie Mbuli is such an angry person... ever attacking kids for no absolute reason, akho kwa need honestly— Wizkid Stan Acc❤️ (@Xhosa_Goddess) September 8, 2019
This is not first time Mbuli has been in a twar with another local artist. In June the colourism debate turned ugly when Mbuli suggested that Pearl Thusi's success is built on her complexion and not her talent.
