Mlindo The Vocalist was believed to be the new Huawei brand ambassador before the official announcement, however, it was later revealed that the mystery figure was, in fact, Nasty C.
Popular mobile and technology company, Huawei, teased its newest South African ambassador before the virtual press conference on Friday, 29 May 2020. The company populated a promotional poster with newly announced ambassadors, Minnie Dlamini Jones, Boity Thulo, NaakMusiQ and DJ Tira.
In the centre of the poster was a mystery figure with visibly dreaded hair, leading many to believe that it was Mlindo The Vocalist. Twitter users were asked to guess the figure’s identity, and many suspected that it was Mlindo The Vocalist, so much so, that his name started to trend.
However, the new ambassador was later revealed as Nasty C, much to the surprise of many.
