What has Mzansi’s Simphiwe Dana been up to? Well, the celebrated singer has denied exploiting her house maids, stating that she treats them all well.
Controversy started when television personality Anele Mdoda tweeted that her deputy nanny ruined her dress in the washing machine. She said she wore the dress only once and her deputy nanny ruined it while washing it.
In a comment to Anele’s tweet, Simphiwe Dana, who recently came out as gay, shocking many by so doing, noted that her rules for any new nanny is to wash white linen and her (Ms Dana’s) clothes by hand. But they may wash her kids’ clothes in the washing machine. Just the kids’ clothes.
She was dragged online for making the nannies wash her clothes and white linen by hand. But then she clarified that she does exactly the same thing herself – washing them, as well as white linen, by hand.
She also claims to pay them well, never exploiting them. It appears some fans are still not convinced. But then the songstress has made her point or what do you think?
