It seems as though at this point, Mzansi will no longer be taking any advice from celebrities because they say celebs set goals for people at an unrealistic age.
Bonang Matheba is the latest to be slammed for her advice to young people by attaching age to various achievements. Last week saw Nandi Mbatha landing on the wrong side of Twitter with her advice that most 30 year old’s took offence to.
Both the ladies have been accused of speaking from a point of privilege as the reality of most South Africans is that they are poverty stricken or don’t have the relevant resources readily available.
“If you are 18 right now or 19 and you don’t know what you’re going to be or what you want to achieve by the time you are 24, it’s already too late. I am not lying to you. The future is created by you and planning minimizes the effects of life happening to you,” she said.
She went on to say the future is planned by an individual so taking time with planning what you want your future to look like will delay your goals.
Bonang did not comment on the trolling however she just went on a blocking spree on Twitter.

Maybe I’m too poor to advise anyone. But I will give out my advice anyways. Never listen to people like Bonang and Nandi. pic.twitter.com/K2qCBEMpi0

Abo Bonang lying to us about having a solid life plan at 18 as if they didn’t drop out of uni to reroute their career path. https://t.co/oaGXcNuwtt
