Although the KZN Entertainment Awards have created hype around the country, there were a few people who initially that thought the awards were a waste of time.

Radio personality Hulisani Ravele said she was not impressed with the newly announced awards.

Taking to social media after the announcement, Ravele wanted to know who’s paying for the new awards ceremony.

She said that if it was government funded, it was a spit in the “face of dilapidated schools, kids who cross dangerous rivers” walking long distances to attend schools and pupils in need of tuition.

She clarified that she’s all for celebrating those in the arts, but called the new awards show “wasteful expenditure”.
