Khaya Mthethwa and other Mzansi Celebrities breathe fire over fake Nomcebo's Jerusalema song (WATCH)


A number of South African celebrities have come out to slam a viral video of a woman singing SA smash hit Jerusalema in blackface…

Bulgarian singer Mihaela Marinova made headlines after she performed the chart-topping hit, made famous by Master KG and vocalist Nomcebo, on singing talent show Kato 2 Kapki Voda.

A clip of her performing the song went viral, as did one of her wearing blackface.

But stars like Khaya Mthethwa, Busiswa and Mo Flava were not amused in the slightest at the show nor the contestant.

“This #nomcebo thing is not a joke. It’s disgusting,” tweeted Khaya, who won the title of SA Idols winner back in 2012.

Fellow singer Busiswa clapped back; “So this white woman was actually black-faced as Nomcebo Zikode to perform JERUSALEMA at an awards show?!?! WTF????”

The gqom singer also urged record label Open Mic Productions to “go after them”.

Metro FM DJ Mo Flava was just perplexed. “I can’t to can” he tweeted alongside a very telling emoji.

Neither Master KG nor Nomcebo have yet to respond to the incident, although Black Twitter have come out in droves to react.

Many tweeps felt that the video was ‘disrespectful’…

Others found nothing wrong with it, even bringing up SA comedian and actor Leon Schuster into the debate…
