South African influencer Kefi Mabote has shot to the top of social media trends after she was accused of having faking her lobola ceremony for content. Earlier today, the star made headlines after various reports claimed that the photos from her viral lobola celebrations were fake.
A source allegedly revealed how everything the influencer does is for content and that she was never married or planning to get married.
Hundreds of tweets have since gone viral as social media users discussed influencers’ lifestyles and how fake it all is.
NO COWS FOR KEFI?
Last year, real estate agent Kefilwe Mabote went viral after sharing photos from her luxury lobola ceremony.
Kefi, who was pictured in a custom Gert-Johan Coetze cow skin dress, captioned various photos from the special event, “Kefilwe Mabote ke makoti alilili.”
She also sported a huge diamond engagement ring which left her followers swooning.
“There was never a marriage, that entire thing was staged for content. The poor guy nearly lost one of his wives after she posted those pictures, the wife thought he secretly married her without her knowledge,” said the source.
MZANSI INSTANTLY SHARES THOUGHTS
In the comment section, many weighed in on the allegations while sharing their thoughts on how toxic influencer culture can be.
