Anele Mdoda trends after Kelly Rowland poses in same swimsuit as hers
SA media personality Anele Mdoda landed on the Twitter trends list on Thursday, thanks to US singer Kelly Rowland posing and posting snaps where she's wearing the same yellow swimsuit that Anele rocked during her recent Maldives holiday.
Now, it is public knowledge that Anele trends each time Kelly posts a picture of herself, because South Africans always seize the moment to remind Anele how wrong she was about Kelly's beauty.
The radio presenter made headlines in October 2019 when she suggested that the Destiny's Child star was not as good looking as many people believed. Anele added that Kelly only “looks amazing with makeup” and shared a picture of Kelly with and without it. Since then she's had to defend her stance multiple times ...
However, the big issue this time seems to be the question of whether Kelly is “petty” enough to come for Anele specifically. Tweeps found it difficult to believe that it was mere coincidence that Kelly wore the same suit as Anele to pose on a yacht with nothing but the ocean behind her.
Tweeps can't decide if they believe Kelly knows who Anele is and that she'd go as far as wearing the same suit to “troll” her. Others think Kelly knows nothing about Anele and picked out the swimsuit because she liked it and it looks good on her.
As Kelly and Anele made up the top two items on the trends list, an inevitable “who wore it best” competition sprang up ... in addition to all the people trying to connect the imaginary dots between Kelly's true motives and Anele's past comments.

Anele idolizes Kelly's best friend. How did she think she would leave unscathed though? 😭— Cwy™ (Cwy Mandindi) (@cdoubleyouwhy) September 16, 2021
I mean, Destiny's Child's lyrics were always petty AF. This is CLASSIC: "Wishin' you the best, pray that you are blessed; much success, no stress, & lots of happiness🖕🏾" Yhuu RIP 🥲⚰🪦 pic.twitter.com/AGAbQ9JHS6
She probably just bought that swimsuit because it’s pretty and looks good on her. The only ones who are keeping this going are the South Africans who are constantly in Kelly Rowland’s mentions. I don’t think she’s ever even said Anele’s name— naledi (@naledimashishi) September 16, 2021
