Sometimes Mzansi got no chill at all. This reality played out recently during the recently concluded BET Awards, where the socialite and businesswoman Shauwn Mkhize showed up. She had been nominated in one of the categories.
As usual, she turned up glamorously for the occasion. However, when she strutted down the red carpet and posed for shots, the photographers were uninterested in taking pictures of her. They simply ignored her.
Mzansi was quick to take notice, and soon a meme economy started flourishing around the snub. It turned out that not only did the photographers snub the businesswoman, but she also went home without the award for which she was nominated.

Some amused social media denizens compared the snub to what her son Andile Mpisane has been facing of recent. They pointed to an occasion when Andile was performing on stage, but the audience looked on, bored and uninterested in what he was doing on stage. You can check out some of the reactions below.

Well, Shauwn Mkhize has nothing to say about those who laughed about the photographers’ lack of interest in her. She was one of several celebrities who made it to the award, including DJ Zinhle and Moozlie.
