Celebrity couple, Zakes Bantwini and Nandi Madida recently got themselves crowned Liars by South Africans.
This new title was awarded them after Zakes explained a situation which seemed unbelievable to most social media users.
Taking to Twitter, the music producer claimed he knows of people who died as a result of load shedding. He urged the South African government to do better.
“I know at least 4ppl who passed today, their ventilations stopped working because of load shedding. I wonder how many ppl lost their loved ones today because of load shedding, can we at least deal with one pandemic at a time pls,” he narrated.
However, people found his story untrue, and some resurfaced Nandi’s old tweet which also caused a big drama on social media.
“Dropped off my son at school … I realized that to some of Shaka’s toddler school friends I am now “Nala”. I heard a “Wow! Shaka’s mom is a Nala! Black Is King!” the actress explained back then.
Following her tweet, many assumed she was just chasing clout with lies.
With these tweets, some tweeps believe the couple are liars, while some have gone out of their way to defend them.
This event has Zakes trending.

Zakes acts as if there are no people who work in hospitals in these twitter streets. This is a blatant lie nje! He must tell us which hospital this is and stop these lies.

Are you sure what Zakes is saying is true. Or you just believe him because you are his fan. Why is he not mentioning the hospital(s) where the four people have passed on?

But Zakes never mentioned the name Hospital, what if they had ventilations at home? Reading is a skill

People wait wait, calm down. Zakes didn’t say that it was a hospital situation, he could of been talking about home based care. Some people are rich enough to afford ventilators, let’s give him a chance to clarify.
