The newly announced Project Runway SA host had to clarify the timeline of events that led to her latest gig after fans questioned her “credibility”.
If there is one thing celebrities (and everyone really) need to etch into their brain, is that Twitter will ALWAYS keep your receipts and given the chance will throw them back at ya… and that’s exactly what they did to Lerato Kganyago.
Back in April when news that Lerato had resigned from Live Ampemerged, there were already rumours that she was headed to Mzansi Magic to present Project Runway SA.
A rumour she politely dismissed as false:
LOL FALSE! I’m not hosting Project Runway. Please let’s not spread false rumors. https://t.co/qLf9yL0h7i

Fast forward to five weeks later, Lerato was drowning in a pool of congratulatory messages after she was announced as the presenter for Project Runway SA.
While on any other platform, her initial denial may have been forgotten and even forgiven, but Twitter is just not that platform. So some of her followers asked her why she “lied”…
Was this you sis?
I mean if you had a confidentiality agreement we get it, but there was no use feigning *total* ignorance. https://t.co/bbo2JhvGho

Lerato replied by saying that she apparently only got the gig three weeks after she resigned. The TV personality gave all credit to the miracle-working God, of course.
I got the job 3 weeks after resigning from Live Amp! That’s how my God works ❤️ https://t.co/IPARmxmXFw

Whether you believe Lerato is entirely up to you and in fact, most of her fans weren’t really bothered. They are just excited to see the presenter do her thang on TV.
Lerato is just as excited. “Thank you all for your kind words! Your love and support mean the world to me! It still feels unreal. Really grateful for this amazing opportunity,” she wrote on her Instagram.
At the end, she left a side note for the sis that asked about the initial denial…
