A Twitter thread has gone viral after social media users shared their alleged experiences with some of Mzansi celebs, some good and some very funny considering the context.
The apparent experiences were sparked by a screenshot of a fan who recalled a bad encounter with TV personality and media mogul Bonang Matheba. The user, @Helena_sifa_ recalled how Bonang refused to have a picture taken with her and her sister, telling them to eat their lunch.
“I was 22, I went out to lunch. Bonang sat next to me and my sister. We asked for a picture and she said, ‘eat your lunch sweety’. So we ate our lunch.”
I think about this tweet a lot 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭 pic.twitter.com/1lIpG1dZUp

However, another user came to Bonang’s defence, saying the star was probably having a bad day, because “sometimes celebrities also need space”.

The tweet prompted many reactions, with some also sharing their stories with other celebrities. While most experiences were allegedly bad, some were good.
And if these encounters are anything to go by, Khanyi Mbau, Kwesta and Cassper Nyovest are some of the coolest and nicest people around.
See fans’ experiences below.
I was with a group of friends in London and we bumped into Sam Smith. We were so excited and asked to take pics with him. He sent someone to tell us he’s not interested. We even used the “We came all the way from Africa” line , but he didn’t care 😂😂😂

In 2016 I was at MTN HQ at a launch, went to Somizi for a pic and he rejected me, I was pregnant and my hormones kicked in, so I cried and wanted to leave, while waiting for hubby by the gate @casspernyovest was leaving, I was scared of another rejection so…

This tweet remind me of Stogie , a Rap music guy. That time i was still working for SABC but already had my own company doing great. The guy met me outside then I said there is a business we should meet and discuss , the guy laughed so loud and pride was there then he left.
