Boity Thulo and Sizwe Dhlomo had Twitter users hanging on their suggestive back and forth interaction after Sizwe challenged Boity to three rounds of various challenges to see who is better at them.
On Wednesday, 16 October 2019, Boity initiated online banter between herself and Newzroom Afrika presenter, Sizwe Dhlomo, after the latter lambasted a social media user for calling his horses ugly. Sizwe, who is popular for his curt replies, confronted the social media user, asking, “At least they’re horses, what’s your excuse?”
Boity reacted and commented on the tweet. Sizwe then responded to Boity by inquiring if she was in good health and if she would be interested in horsing racing against him. Boity responded to the tweet, saying, “I’m great. Let’s set up a day at a race track? Keen.” However, it was the next tweet from Sizwe that set social media users’ minds racing.
Sizwe wrote, “We’ll do three rounds. One on horses, another in Ranges [and] then the last one will be a rap battle.” Before Boity could respond, their followers had already started flooding the comments section, with one social media user saying, “Dear Lord, please cleanse my mind, that’s all I ask.” Another follower wrote, “I thought the other round will be – Never mind.”
Being a good sport, Boity responded by saying, “You obviously have an unfair advantage with the horses. But I’m ready for you. Let’s!” Sizwe was the last to reply by saying, “I could probably low-key win all three even.” One of the comments on the post stated, “As for winning all three!”
I’m great. Let’s set up a day at a race track? Keen. 🦍🦍🦍 https://t.co/DtJtLy3ryl
