South African influencer, Mihlali Ndamase, topped the trends list after she alluded to a romantic relationship with F1 driver, Lewis Hamilton, by crediting him as the photographer of her latest Instagram post.
Mihlali Ndamase is currently in Singapore and recently attended the F1 Grand Prix. The highest paid South African influencer shared her trip to the race track on her Instagram stories, revealing that she had access to the cockpit during the race. Moreover, the beauty influencer constantly referred to Lewis Hamilton as her man on her Instagram stories, sharing her disappointment with her followers after he came fourth in the race.
However, what caused the star’s name to top the Twitter trends list was when she posted an image, on Sunday, 22 September 2019, of herself in a bathtub with nothing but a towel wrapped around her head and credited Lewis Hamilton as the photographer. The image, which currently has over 57 000 likes, with commentary from high-profile media personalities such as Boity, Nadia Nakai and LootLove, served its purpose, with many wondering who really took the picture.
Some of the comments from social media users on Twitter believed that it is possible for Mihlali to be romantically involved with Lewis Hamilton. However, one social media user highlighted that this is not the first time she has done this, writing, “She did this with Drake. Mihlali knows how to get you all tweeting and confused.”
Mihlali also addressed a few questions on her Instagram stories. She explained that she is currently seeing a potential partner that she met over two years ago at a wedding. When asked who took the bathtub picture, she simply answered, “The person holding my phone.”
Since sharing the image and responding to some of her followers’ questions, Mihlali further stated, “Stop asking questions that don’t concern you and enjoy the content that you’re being given.”
