Below are some of the comments: 

English is not our mother language baba...we write what people can there is no need for unnecessary irritation.....or are you Nigerian. 

If you are still laughing at this lady nge English yakhe, I feel for you . Open your eyes, she's doing it on purpose.

I always say white people can't even try speaking our languages but we out here laughing our own when they break English.

I hate an African that laughs at another African for misspelling english , yet White people misspelling our African languages and we normalize it . Today our maps nd road boards are written Tembisa instead of Thembisa , Umtata instead of Umthatha because white people misspelled them we see no problem but we critisize our own for misspelling this colonial language. 

A wise man once said the most intelligent person in the universe is a black child coz he/she is expected to know other people’s languages.He/she must be fluent when speaking it and also must know how to write it.

#English_is_not_our_mother’s👅 so stop laughing your fellow black children when they didn’t speak it or write it correct.

In 2021, she was a victim of body shaming. 

"I humble my self politely to ask everyone to stop humiliaing me," she wrote on social media after people shared images of her teasing her thighs.
