Mpoomy Ledwaba is selective about what terms people can use to compliment her daughter

YouTuber Mpoomy Ledwaba left the TL a bit tense on Monday after she expressed her disapproval of people calling her daughter “makoti” when trying to compliment her. Mpoomy, who is Idols SA runner-up Brendan Praise’s wife, took to Twitter to say she found adults who called children “bride/wife” or “son-in-law” quite creepy. Nothing creepier than adults seeing babies and calling them makoti or mkhwenyane,” she wrote.

Mpoomy and Brendan welcomed their daughter Nuri in 2018 and the baby girl has since grown cuter by the day. Now just over a year old, Nuri has won over her parents’ fans and seemingly attracted comments – intended to be compliments – where people refer to Nuri as their makoti.

However, Mpoomy is not about that. She didn’t hesitate to set people straight for claiming that the terms of “endearment” were harmless. Imagine placing your daughter’s worth on marriage. My daughter is worth way more. To you it may be a compliment, but allow us to feel otherwise about our children,” she said.

“I’m not raising a ‘wife’; I’m raising much more.
