It seems Anele Mdoda will never be able to live down the comments she made about Kelly Rowland‘s looks.
Every time the Destiny’s Child star posts a cute picture on the gram, people in Mzansi drag Anele’s name through the mud.
This time around, social media peeps are convinced Kelly shaded Anele after posting a sexy swimsuit picture.
Kelly is currently soaking up the sun in Capri, Italy. She posted several snaps from her vacation on social media.

Enter Anele haters…
Twitter users remembered that not so long ago, Anele was living it up in the Maldives. She too posted several pictures of herself wearing gorgeous swimsuits. One of them was a yellow one-piece that looks exactly like Kelly’s swimsuit.
“This can’t be a coincidence. uKelly uyenza ngamabom,” one Twitter user noted.

While it is highly unlikely that Kelly knows Anele even exits, many felt the singer’s sexy snaps were payback for Anele saying she looks ‘ugly without make-up’.
Anele made the comment in 2019 after a Twitter user said Kelly was the best-looking Destiny’s Child member.
She even produced receipts to back up her comments.

Since then, Anele’s name pops up in Mzansi every time Kelly shares pictures of herself looking drop-dead gorgeous.
But Anele couldn’t be bothered. Not only does she refuse to back down from her comments, but she says she enjoys the attention.
“I like to trend. Keeps the bills paid. And she isn’t prettier than Beyonce soooooo I would be lying. Have a good life,” she wrote on Twitter in July.

We guess there is no such thing as bad publicity in Celebville.

Some tweeps believe someone snitched on Anele and informed Kelly – via social media – about the drama.

It’s unclear if Kelly actually saw the comment.
