Reactions on Twitter on her Appearance on the Cosmopolitan activism issue
Nomzamo gets paid to do appearances at charity events and for that she is hailed as an activist ? We are not respected in this country. ..We need to do away with titles and people must get their hands dirty. Wearing a doek and raising your fist doesn’t make an you an activist

I feel like as South Africans we complain too much while we ourselves are doing nothing to make a difference in ours & other peoples lives. We also prefer celebrating foreign faces than our own. Nomzamo is an activist at her own right & level, whether being paid or otherwise.

I think activism is quite literally using your platforms and privileges to give a voice to the voiceless. Nomzamo has every right to be on that cover.
