Social media influencer Mihlali Ndamase came under fire on Twitter after she shared a video of herself creating a ‘drag’ make-up look. Mihlali posted a new video on her YouTube channel where she filmed herself creating the look. The one thing I thoroughly enjoy about drag make-up is the freedom to play, there aren’t any rules, more is more and you better put on more honey.
A few tweeps claimed that she was “appropriating” and others mentioned how “low quality” her work was on that particular look. However, it was actually Mihlali’s army of fans that resulted in her topping the Twitter trends list as they wondered why her critics wouldn’t just take a break.

Despite all that, sis still secured her bag. If you look closely at her posts, they are clearly labelled as paid ads and the hate essentially worked in her favour because people flocked to her YouTube channel to see what the fuss was all about.
LOL, Mihlali also tweeted asking people to “like, comment and subscribe” while they were it.

You guys don’t like Mihlali because she is pretty, extremely pretty and she makes a living from it.
You were told “a pretty face won’t make you money” and she has nullified that
Men love her, women love her and it kills you 😂😂😂😂💀💀💀💀
