Kuli Roberts puts DJ Sbu on blast for calling her ‘grootman’ – Video
Kuli Roberts puts DJ Sbu on blast for calling her ‘grootman’ Kuli Roberts Intensifies Fight For Albinism Awareness.
Kuli Roberts was Mac G’s recent guest on his Podcast and Chill, which now broadcasts on Channel O. Her episode did not entice avid viewers of Mac G’s podcast, with a handful of people saying it was boring. Nonetheless, she made some pretty eye-opening statements and taught people the importance of embracing people living with albinism.
The woman who goes by name of ‘Stop Albinism Killings’ on Twitter, showed just how passionate she is about this cause. Mac G asked her about it and said he has never seen a hashtag dedicated to albinism awareness. Kuli reiterated that she has made it a lifestyle for her to advocate for albinism and does not want it to just be a trend.
In the clip shared by Channel O, she says, “I don’t put a hashtag, it’s a way of life,” she then adds that she does not wait until albinism awareness month, to start advocating. She believes if she does this every Thursday then it will gain momentum, just like how every Thursday she dedicated it so ‘happy lesbian Thursday.”
She says she does this because she wants to educate the black homophobes and let them know that women also do date each other.
“The reason I say that is so that the black man who is a homophobe can know that there are women who like other women. Because as black people, we like to use tradition and culture and all sorts of excuses for weirdness.
“We need to be exposed to things and you may not agree but you need to know that these things exist. And my reason for supporting people with albinism is because I want Africans to stop killing them. And I want African languages to change what they call people with albinism. Because every single name in every single African language for a person with albinism is derogatory.”
Kuli also made viewers chuckle a bit when she revealed that DJ Sbu actually used to call her ‘grootman.’ “DJ Sbu calls everybody Grootman. He accidentally called me Grootman. I was like, Woah.”
The last time Kuli made headlines was when people expressed concern for her “dramatic weight loss.” Speaking on the hate, she said “It’s quite funny though, that people who are talking about me being skinny are the same people who are wearing cycling shorts under their clothes because they are not comfortable about the way they look, Truth is, everybody wants to be thin.”

“Back in the 90s people used to tease me back I am dark-skinned. Some said I was so dark ingathi ndisuzwele yi donkey ebusweni (as if a donkey farted in my face). Then people said came from a well-off family why didn’t I bleach my skin and look like Mshoza and I said no. Now they talk about my weight, I don’t care.”

Mac G on the other trended for the revelation he made about his ex-girlfriend Lamiez Holworthy. Many people did not know he and Lamiez used to be an item, but now they do. He said the reason they broke up is that she was getting too serious as she wanted to introduce him to her parents. “She wanted to introduce me to her parents and sh*t, then I said Nah I’m gone,” he revealed.
MacG used to date Lamiez?

He said he felt very bad for leaving her because he could see that she was very much in love with him. He also was about to reveal more about their relationship, but Sol interrupted him.
“I thought we were just having fun but then I realized that no she is taking things very seriously.”

The TV personality is struggling to come to terms with her brother’s passing.
Minnie’s brother died after being in ICU for several weeks after he suffered from a ruptured brain aneurysm which placed him on life support for 23 days.
Today she took to Instagram to remember him. “3 Years today & it still doesn’t feel real 💔 I used to fear death but now I have something to look forward to ❤️ I Love you always my boy,” Minnie wrote Captioning the picture of her late brother

aking to Instagram, she said she could not believe that it has been 4 years already. “wow time flies!” she wrote.
Minnie said marriage is not a walk in a park, she said it comes with challenges. “Marriage is not easy and there are many times we’ve both wanted to call it quits but it’s days like today that remind us of the promise we made to each other Love you Baba kaNetha #TheJoneses”
Meanwhile, the TV star is also continuing to build a legacy for her family. She recently announced her brand new show.
She was looking for inspiring TV personalities. All they had to do was to send a shoutout video, introduce themselves and post the video on social media using the hashtag #OwnTheO.
“Do you want to be on TV? Grow your social media following? Flex your presenting skills, all while watching your favorite music videos from around the world? Now you can with Own The O!” she wrote introducing her show that will be aired on Channel O soon.
Minnie said she is now more involved behind the scenes as a storyteller under her company Beautiful Day Productions.
“If someone had to ask me who I am, I am a storyteller. It’s what I love most about life and how my ancestors passed on our history and lessons that the next generation needs to learn. I am so blessed that I get to express this passion of mine in multiple mediums.” She said.
“Here is one of my hidden (not anymore) talents. I created a beautiful story about love that transcends racial prejudice. I got to work with my genius brother @junkieflo who with a talented team of writers brought our story to life in the @kyknettv movie called PA. It’s always about breaking the mold and not allowing myself to be boxed into a category.”
