With all the recent shenanigans from Nota and Slik Talk, Ntsiki Mazwai has largely flown under the radar over the past few weeks.

Never one to be left out of the conversation for too long, she’s back with a bang after comments she made about gay people on Twitter sent social media into a frenzy.

“Being a gay man does not qualify you to be a woman,” she tweeted, apropos to nothing. “You’re a gay man. That's that. Please stop trying to erase us. 🙏🏿.”

As that tweet started to gain traction, Mazwai added fuel to the fire by stating that gay men have held male privilege all their lives.

“Gay men competing with women is part of toxic masculinity,” she tweeted. “Gay men have not experienced the same oppression as women in this world. They still held male privileges all their lives. We haven't.”

As these tweets continued to cause an uproar, she then started promoting her upcoming event.

“Imagine a room filled with high power females,” she said, unashamedly. “The love and laughter. Make your bookings. Limited tickets.”

She then concluded by saying: “A humble reminder that I am a vehicle for learning and opening up conversations. Homophobia is not welcome. Hate speech is not welcome. Thank you 🙏🏿🙏🏿”

While many have expressed their support for Mazwai’s statements, others have accused her of homophobia and being ignorant.

“You need to educate yourself on the plurality of gender and sexuality,” tweeted @nalo_za. “Your comment is way dumb for someone who's educated with a Master's degree.”
