Nandi Madida dished out some classy shade when asked about comments DJ Black Coffee made about Zakes Batwini’s hit song, ‘Osama’.
YouTube sensation Lasizwe grilled Nandi about the “saga” during the latest episode of ‘Drink or Tell the Truth’.
Lasizwe asked the singer how she felt about Black Coffee saying her husband’s song is not original.
The DJ described ‘Osama’ as a “nice” song on Twitter but told tweeps he won’t play it as he prefers the original.
Nandi naturally came to her hubby’s defence.
“Of course it’s an original… the song is actually a reflection of where everyone should be. We should all be positive, we should all be happy for one another – especially as black people we cannot afford to divide and rule,” she replied.
Lasizwe was not feeling Nandi’s “beauty pageant answer” and demanded more spice.
“My sister is a psychiatrist and I hate to be so deep on a show like this but I think it is important for people watching. A lot of us have childhood traumas and really need to review and seek help and therapies… I’m saying all of us,” she said.
Black Coffee vs Zakes Bantwini
Zakes is yet to respond to Black Coffee’s remarks about his song, but the latter insists there is no beef. Many, including Sol Phenduka, wondered if the pair had a falling out.
“Is there any conflict between you and Zakes because ever since the Love, Light & Music and Juju era, which was a HUGE SUCCESS collaboratively, you two have never worked together. Are there any tensions?” Sol tweeted.
But Black Coffee poured cold water on any talk of tension.
“No there’s no conflict, we had our differences and both agreed not to have a working relationship anymore,” he replied.
No there's no conflict,we had our differences and both agreed not to have a working relationship anymore.
