IFani claims he is not a celebrity anymore


THE POST by hip hop artist iFani, real name Mzayifani Boltin, regarding not being a celebrity anymore has caused a debate on Twitter over whether he is – or ever was – famous.

Taking to the micro-blogging website yesterday, the Iingoma Ezimnandi hitmaker posted that he’s glad that he’s no longer considered a celebrity, where he stated that he was empathisin­g with what Black Coffee is going through.

And while he initially included AKA, he recanted that statement.

He said: “I’m so glad I’m not a celebrity anymore. I feel for Nkosinathi.

“I feel for Kiernan. No, wait, sungxama ... I feel for Nkosinathi qha.”

The rapper last dropped a solo project in 2013, however, he’s been featured in various songs over the years.

A heated debate erupted on Twitter about whether iFani was ever considered a celebrity.

Black Coffee made news headlines this week, after he lashed out at his estranged wife Enhle

Mbali, following claims she made on social media.

Mbali took to social media, after her applicatio­n for a protection order against Black Coffee was set aside.

This comes after the actress detailed how she was allegedly abused by the DJ.

Black Coffee has denied assaulting Mbali.

Following the court’s decision to set aside her applicatio­n, Mbali released a video on social media, in which she said she would not be protecting the father of her two sons anymore.

After her video, Mbali updated her fans on Instagram, saying that the electricit­y in her home was turned off, eluding to Black Coffee cutting it.

Black Coffee then took to Twitter, where he called Mbali a liar.

“Stop lying!!! The lies are too much. I won’t be quiet anymore.

The children you publicly claim to be protecting are suffering because of your lifestyle,” he said in one tweet.
