“Why are black women finding it so hard to admit that they lack confidence in their own hair…And wigs make them feel prettier?”

Just hours later, she found herself on everyone’s lips on the social media streets, trending in the top three most talked about topics.

Ntsiki is not a huge fan of anything non-African and has always been an activist who uses her social media to preach her truth. She spoke about how she has always been ridiculed by other women who call her broke for not owning a weave.

“Black women used to say I’m broke cos I don’t wear a weave… Now they are saying natural hair is expensive. If you get told that you are ugly for long enough, you start to believe it”

“The weave ADDICTION is no different from a drug ADDICTION. Even a bride in full tradition will ruin the whole look with a weave sembi kengoku mtshakazi,” she added.

Her posts didn’t sit well with people as she later clarified her statement and informed people what her intentions are when it comes to social media saying “Twitter is my office.”

“I’m not on social media to post pics and brag… I’m here to stir dialogue. My Twitter account has ALWAYS been about spiritual WORK. Always. Twitter is my office where I use words to stir debate and dialogue in my community.”
