Mzansi Magic’s reality programme Mnakwethu has again come under fire, this time the show has caught the wrath of Ngizwenkosi Mchunu.
The controversial former Ukhozi FM presenter-turned-maskandi music promoter has come out gun blazing, calling for the show to be canned because “it distorted” the Zulu cultural practice.
In a voice note shared on social media, Mchunu is purportedly speaking to his associate known as Jamludi.
“Jamludi, mfwethu asikwazi ukuthula sibona koniwa isiko [We can’t keep quiet when our culture is being undermined]. My heart pains when people like us have worked so hard to build and nurture Zulu culture,” lashed out Mchunu in IsiZulu.
He said the participants, who have no cultural grounds to seek polygamous union, where random unmarried people who were scouted and lured with money to participate in the show.
He lambasted Musa Mseleku, the show’s host, saying he was a key mover in undermining the AmaZulu nation and threatened to report the matter to the royal house.
Mseleku said: “I respect him and I would not want to be drawn into debating with him.”
