In Pictures: South African celebrities who have been blasted for their sense of fashion
It has become a well-known fact that social media can thrust one into an overnight celebrity. However, the same social media can ruin one’s years of success in a blink of an eye.
Of late several celebrities have seen themselves trending for the wrong reasons. Black Twitter has trolled several celebrities due to their bad sense of fashion. Who could be these celebs though?
One thing you should know about Unathi is that, she's always trending for all the wrong reasons. She is that personality we all hate to love. However, Media personality Unathi Nkayi wants people to know that she is proud of wearing locally made clothing.
Her fashion sense of late has been blasted by Mzansi’s fashion police. On Idols SA she has been seen wearing funny outfits that have got Mzansi talking. A few weeks ago she saw herself making all sorts of headlines after her weird outfit pictures went viral.
The South African Idols judge Unathi Msengana is one of the highly celebrated female stars in the country. Being the first African that voiced a character in the series ‘Don McStuffins’, she has had many strings of accolades to herself and also honoured at various occasions.
2. Shawn Mkhize
After many critics from Twitter users, Shawn hit back and explained that she was not fazed by the comments and that she understands that people have different tastes in fashion.
Despite being Mzansi finest she has seen herself trending for the wrong reasons when it comes to dressing. However, she is best known for purchasing expensive designer clothes from Gucci to Prada but her sense of dressing has been blasted of late.
Businesswoman Shauwn Mkhize’s style is glamorous. When "Mam'Mkize" is not dressed in her one-of-a-kind outfits, Shauwn keeps her look fresh and playful by wearing coordinated outfits with matching designer handbags and shoes.
3. Rich Mnisi
Rich Mnisi is known for their exorbitantly priced clothing that celebrities and influencers such as Somizi and Sarah Langa are known to show off. The designer behind the fashion brand seeks to push fashion boundaries. He seems to be moving into the gender-neutral side of fashion after recently posting a few pictures of himself rocking mini skirts.
He has been duped as Mzansi’s fashion icon. Recently he was crowned as Mzansi’s best dresser. After graduating science with a BA in Fashion Design and Business Management, he came up with his own clothing line OATH studio in 2014. Despite being a well-known designer Rich Mnisi dresses otherwise. Maybe his pop fashion sense is misunderstood in Mzansi.
4. Amanda Black
Amanda Benedicta Antony, known professionally as Amanda Black, is a South African singer and songwriter. She achieved recognition in 2016 following the release of her hit single "Amazulu", which was nominated for several music awards.
The multi-award-winning singer seems to have gone MI but Mzansi always sneak into her private life. Social media has often trolled her for her poor choice of clothes if not her sense of fashion. In recent years she has seen herself trending for what seems to be bad dressing.
It seems as if being a celebrity comes with a burden. Her make-up has also been blasted by many. Recently Black Twitter trolled her after some of her pictures went viral her dressing and make-up were a point of concern.
5. Thandiswa Mazwai
Thandiswa Nyameka Mazwai is a South African musician, and is also the lead vocalist and songwriter of Bongo Maffin. She is also known as King Tha. In 2004, her first solo project Zabalaza album attained double platinum status and her album also got nominated for Planet Awards on BBC Radio 3.
Best-known as King Tha, Thandiswa Nyameka Mazwai is a South African musician, lead vocalist and song writer of Bongo Maffin. Her funky dressing is out of this world and Mzansi has always weighed into her fashion sense whenever her pictures flood social media.
