Mihlali owes her success to her hardwork and determination amongst many other things. But like every successful black people, especially women, she had to fight off trolls who assumed her success is because of a certain cult or man.
Remember the infamous open letter to her by a female fan who accused Mihlali of having a blesser who maintains her expensive lifestyle. The open letter was sent to her on her birthday, in which the social media user accuses Mihlali of selling her dreams. The fan claimed that Mihlali was sleeping with Duduzile’s ex-husband who sponsors her lavish lifestyle and butt augmentation.
Mihlali laughed at the open letter, but in a separate incident, she said, “Black women cannot be successful without being questioned if it’s not a cult accusation then it’s something along the lines of “she’s sleeping with mang mang’s father,” she said.
Viewers can enjoy the festival on 26 December at 21:30 PM, on Mzansi Magic, Channel 161.
