‘Channels are not buying my opinion with items’

The Queen actress Thembisa Mdoda-Nxumalo not too long ago trended for supporting leisure commentator Phil Mphela who was slammed by tweeps for being “bribed” with promotional packages to advertise exhibits on his social media.

The debate started when Mphela tweeted a couple of promotional package deal he acquired from e.television’s trend drama House of Zwide earlier than giving his “opinion” concerning the present.


A tweep requested Phil if he’s all of the sudden tweeting concerning the new present due to the promotional package deal he acquired.

Another tweep requested him:

What if the manufacturing wished to do their very own reveal?

What if no formal settlement has been signed and you’ve got already introduced?

It’s cool to be the primary to interrupt an enormous story.. however it’s superior to interrupt the story after getting clearance from the house owners.

Phil took to his Twitter account to say:

Hehehe. Tlogela mona (cease being jealous).

When channels ship me items, they are not buying my opinion.

Even exhibits I receives a commission to advertise, I at all times insist that I get to have my personal natural response.

The leisure commentator says he’s really aiding channels when he posts a couple of present earlier than the channel makes an official announcement. 

People get extra when channels finally announce the information a day or week earlier than the premiere.
