Actress Zikhona Sodlaka has responded to Ntsiki Mazwai after shading her for wearing a weave.
Ntsiki has expressed how she disappointed to see the Zikhona wearing “foreign hair”.
“Eish my favourite actress is about to lose a fan. It’s a no for me. Our greatest can’t be imitating foreign hair,” she wrote.
After she found herself on the trends list, Zikhona felt she needed to set the record straight.
As an actress who tells many women’s stories, Zikhona clapped back at the poet’s shade, saying she often switches up her looks to match the characters she plays.
“I’m also an actress. I play long hair, short hair. Afro, dreads. My job is to tell stories of women in all kinds of ways. I myself am bald but what pays my bills demands I change to suit the person. I’m playing that’s why it says #TheChameleon,” Zikhona wrote.
