Boity Thulo has learned the hard way and hopefully next time she’ll try mincing her words when addressing the public.
On Friday the rapper dropped her EP and unfortunately for her Mzansi wasn’t ready to patronise her 46664 mini album oops we meant 4436 mini album. Black Twitter believes that not streaming her music is payback for the singer and reality show star who previously called them unemployed roaches.
They made the statement that they won’t support her music as soon as she announced the release date. Tweeps reminded her of how she bashed them using a very sensitive issue in SA “unemployment”.
If you’re a bit lost, let’s give you a recap. A few months ago, Boity commented on Mihlali Ndamase’s tweets who expressed her frustration after men slut-shamed her for admitting that she is dating.
“They DGAF. Don’t let the roaches bring you down to their level,” she wrote.

And then again later in that day, she went to write in a since-deleted tweet: “Do these roaches not have jobs?! Sitting, bitchin and gossiping on Twitter all day? Sies.”

Hmmmm…. little did she know that she was sabotaging herself. Tweeps meant business and if you think they were joking then think again as all the numbers on streaming platforms are pathetic, imagine she couldn’t even reach 5 000 views on YouTube. Eyy kurough…

If you go and compare her numbers with the likes of Master KG, Sjava and Sun EL who also dropped their music yesterday, you’d know that tweeps can be very unforgiving at times. We hope that her music will survive this blow.
