Fans seem to be convinced that Queen B and Anele Mdoda have not buried the hatchet! The two have been sub-tweeting each other now and again and it seems as though their slight digs become more and more obvious.
Anele Mdoda has been trending for the past few days for her comment on Sizwe Dlomo’s tweet – which suggested Kelly Rowland is the prettiest Destiny’s Child membe. The 947 breakfast host thought that her opinion (which came with ‘receipts’) was going to be well-received, but it didn’t land.
Many took offence and South African black twitter started calling her names before American Twitter took over. Phat Joe also jumped in on the debacle when the topic of his morning show on Radio 2000 was ‘have you ever been criticised by someone beneath you.’ That also caused a huge stir and people took that as a direct diss to Anele.
But before that, someone else who shaded Anele right before American Twitter caught on was Queen B, who tweeted: “Finish her” with a shades-on emoji. Naturally, her fans immediately assumed that Bonang was directing at Anele.
Finish her. 😎

Bonang and Anele have been going toe-to-toe with each other, dating back to when it was alleged that Anele never wanted to interview B on her SABC 3 show. However, Anele shut that rumour down by suggesting that it was infact Queen B who refused.
Poor Anele and Bonang just says “finish her” 🤣🤣🤣

After all is said and done, it seems as though the bashing and name-calling does not bother Anele, as she continued to show thick skin throughout the whole mess. She even commented on how American twitter is weak compared to SA twitter when it comes to roasts; saying their poverty jokes were stale and outdated.
And Pumba. Like that’s so original. Typical Americans, late on every trend. That joke is so stale it’s like it came on the ships they left in. South African Black twitter was way better with roasts. Yes I’m scoring 😂😘💃🏿 https://t.co/GKcBiDvoIs
