A few years ago, South Africans were treated to a local celebrity roast like no other. Many of the country’s funniest media personalities dug their teeth into Somizi on Comedy Central’s Roast of Somizi and it was certainly one for the books. One of the people who caught some stray during the roasting was controversial poet and activist Ntsiki Mazwai and according to her, she still hasn’t healed from getting roasted while on the show – even though it is a whole for years later.

Ntsiki Mazwai still scarred from her Comedy Central roast

Four years ago, what was meant to be the Comedy Central Roast of Somizi, quickly turned into the roast of Ntsiki Mazwai.

The controversial human rights activist was among other local media personalities such as Kaya FM breakfast show presenter Skhumba Hlope, Gareth Cliff, Joanne Joseph, DJ Fresh, Nomzamo Mbatha, and Kurt Darren – all of who were tasked with roasting Somizi within an inch of his self-confidence level.

Unfortunately for Ntsiki, the tables quickly turned and she became the subject of everyone’s roasts – so much so that people started calling it “The Roast of Ntsiki Mazwai”.

Taking to Twitter on Tuesday 14 June, Mazwai shared that she is STILL traumatised from the experience and doubts she will ever go on another roast show again.

“Wooooo, since the Roast, I don’t trust these contracts to work with white people. I am scarred and traumatised for life, hey. I just think wooooooo you just want to humiliate me akere.”

Ntsiki’s tweet comes shortly after news broke that SA actress and socialite Khanyi Mbau will also be featured on a Comedy Central Roast.

Khanyi, unlike Ntsiki, says she is honoured to become the first African woman to be roasted on the Comedy Central hit show.
