Zikhona Sodlaka wears many hairstyles, in different roles, but that didn’t stop Ntsiki Mazwai for shading the actress for wearing a weave. Over the weekend, Ntsiki shared a screenshot of an Instagram post showing Zikhona wearing a weave, and expressed how disappointed she was about the actress wearing “foreign hair”.

“Eish my favourite actress is about to lose a fan. It’s a no for me. Our greatest can’t be imitating foreign hair,” she wrote.


After she found herself on the trends list, Zikhona felt she needed to set the record straight. As an actress who tells many women’s stories, Zikhona clapped back at the poet’s shade, saying she often switches up her looks to match the characters she plays.

“I’m also an actress. I play long hair, short hair. Afro, dreads. My job is to tell stories of women in all kinds of ways. I myself am bald but what pays my bills demands I change to suit the person. I’m playing that’s why it says #TheChameleon,” Zikhona wrote.


Zikhona soon found support, with many of her stans saying their fav didn’t need to explain herself to Ntsiki.
