PHOTOS: 5 Most Controversial Mzansi Celebrities; You Can Add Your Opinion.

Entertainers are the most popular persons you will find in practically every county. Wherever they travel, these celebrities garner a lot of affection and attention. Because of their controversial reputation, they sometimes inspire resentment and envy.

South Africa is home to some of Africa's most well-known musicians. Some of these musicians are not only talented, but they also have an uncanny ability to stir up controversy.

These celebs are entertainers that have grown a thick skin in response to public criticism of their music, as well as the unfavorable comments they receive when they deviate from the script. Let's take a look at some of South Africa's most divisive musicians.

1. Kelly Khumalo.

Kelly Khumalo, who was named the greatest newbie in the Afro Pop music market in 2005, has been embroiled in controversy with the South African public after her partner died in October 2014. Since burglars broke into her home and killed Meyiwa Senzo, the rapper and dancer who received the Best Female Artist title at the 19th South African Music Awards has been bombarded with questions.

2. Zodwa Wabantu.

Wabantu's conflicts have not been limited to South Africa's borders; she has brought her controversies worldwide. The performer is well-known for appearing on stage without underpants. There have been times when she has performed naked or in revealing clothing. Due to poor stage ethics, Zodwa was barred from playing in Zambia and Zimbabwe between 2017 and 2018.

3. Ntsiki Mazwa.

Nt Mazawa is still one of South Africa's most reviled celebrities, particularly because she continues to criticize black women's obsession with white women's features.

On social media, she has received countless threats for her ostensibly anti-black views. The multi-talented musician and event planner, on the other hand, does not appear to be fazed by her online adversaries. If people don't like Mazwai's views, she advises them to block her on social media.

4. Okmalumkoolkat.

Okmalumkoolkat, also known as Smiso Zwane, is a member of the Durban-based duo Dirty Paraffin. The rapper was once a popular figure in South Africa. However, he was accused of sexual assault, which resulted in him doing time in prison. Okmalumkoolkat's status in the music industry has completely changed since then.

5. Steve Hofmeyr.

Steve Hofmeyr has the proper skills as a singer and TV host to generate scandals whenever he wants, which he has done for quite some time. Hofmeyr was accused of assaulting Espare Weideman, an editor of Huisgenoot, at the Miss South Africa Finals in 2008. Hofmeyr allegedly blamed Weideman for his estranged wife Sutherland's divorce. On his social media sites, he continues to produce stuff that is divisive.
