Johannesburg – Comedian and TV host Siv Ngesi has thrown major shade at SA celebrities for being more vocal about the US election that South African political issues.
This year’s US elections are the most polarised in decades and have been talked about for days on social media.
Some of South Africa’s biggest names, including politicians and celebs, have expressed their thoughts on the process and on both the candidates, Donald Trump and Joe Biden.
Some of the celebrities who have commented on the elections include radio personality Sizwe Dlomo, musician Trevor Sineke and entrepreneur Vusi Thembekwayo.
However, Siv though it was rather funny that celebrities were weighing on the US elections instead of SA political issues.
“Great to see SA celebrities have political opinions without being in the pocket of the party in power,” said Siv. “They tweet more about US elections than SA political issues.”
Ntsiki Mazwai echoed Siv’s statement, also taking a jab at some of the celebrities, saying she didn’t know that they had political views.
