A YouTuber by the name of Valerie Makgetlaneng published a YouTube video on her channel along with her friends, who are also YouTubers. On the YouTube video they were rating South African YouTubers based on their YouTube channels. They were rating the YouTubers based on their personality, content, consistency, quality and relatability.
They included YouTubers such as Mihlali Ndamase, Snikiwe Mhlongo and Landzy Gama. Some tweeps didn’t like the fact that the YouTubers were rating fellow South African YouTubers. Some tweeps stood up for their favourite YouTubers. One tweep says, “I don’t understand how they talked about Mihlali’s relatability lacking because her lifestyle is far from theirs then praise Cynthia for living that same lifestyle.” One tweep says, “We’re not supporting bullies. Can you imagine how Landzy might feel after listening to all of that? Or how Thandi Gama feels about being called bland? Mihlali is not beauty. That girl breathes beauty. We’re not giving that a moment, sorry.
One tweep says, “I think there’s a difference between constructive criticism and just being rude. Telling someone their personality is blandlike a flat piece of white paper is just like???” Some of the content creators also responded to the video. Thandi Gama says, “Thank goodness I’m going on holiday tomorrow! I’ve actually had enough…I never expected such from other women!” Snikiwe Mhlongo posted a direct message conversation she had with one of the YouTubers on the video, where the YouTuber told her that she loves her channel. “What an interesting turn of the events,” says Snikiwe Mhlongo.
