Julius Malema and musician Ntsiki Mazwai lit up Twitter on Sunday night with an explosive feud, which saw Ntsiki threatening to walk away from the EFF and Julius calling the muso a “failed poet”.

The trouble started when Ntsiki apparently tweeted that she would “pass on the EFF” if the party was being made all about Julius.

The politician hit back, saying that he didn’t need an endorsement from a “failed poet” and suggested that Ntsiki was obsessed with him.

I don’t need an endorsement of any failed poet to succeed, politics is my game & I know it. At least I’m good at what I’m doing unlike you.

Tweeting about Juju all the time & not about your work or profession, as if Julius is your job description. I don’t need you or ur friends.

Julius claimed he sent the same message to all of the performers at the event and accused Ntsiki of being a “pretentious mole”.

 Ntsiki wasn’t taking any of it lying down and fired back at Julius, telling fans that he was worse than Zuma and was just angry because she was more qualified than him.

I don’t need you or your poetry to succeed, that’s all I’m saying. Our life depends on EFF members and supporters not supporters wanna be.

EFF women will be led by a woman of their choice not self imposed failed poet, we have capable women with proper emotional intelligence.

Fighters, we must know our friends and not be part of the pretentious moles.
