As the hashtags #2008vs2018 and #tenyearchallenge continued to tear up social media, DJ Zinhle decided to join in the fun by sharing a pic of herself. 

For those of you who have been living under a rock thousands of people including Mzansi's famous faces have shared pictures, comparing how they've changed over the past ten years. 

So Zinhle didn't take lightly to bleaching comments when she took the plunge. 

A Twitter user shared the post with the caption: "Bleaching on steroids". 

Zinhle didn't take the comment lying down and told the user that the challenge was for fun. 

"Don't be mean for attention. So you can take a break," read part of Zinhle's tweet.

But the user known as Fiks was not willing to back down. 

The 10-year challenge is a new trend on social media where people have been posting pictures from 2009 vs 2019 to see "who aged best". Of course, hilarious memes followed in the wake of the trend.
