Ntando Duma is one celebrity who never shies away from speaking her mind and this could be one of the reasons many people gravitate toward her so much.
Yesterday she took to her Instagram stories, to ask Benzo – who was busy taking videos of her with an iPhone 4 – to please put some respect on her name.
“Benzo tell me why are you taking a video of me with an iPhone 4. The quality, respect me. Put some respect on my name. Respect me, please. Thank you.”
Some of the things Ntando Duma says don’t always land. Earlier this year, a video of the actress being rude to an elderly woman surfaced – she was arguing with the woman who asked her to kindly vacate the parking space for disbaled people. However, she was not having it.
Trying to calm the storm, Ntando and her team issued a statement apologizing for the incident.
“In light of a recording from last year which has recently surfaced, I would like to apologize unreservedly as I fully understand that my behaviour was unacceptable. I have a deep regard for why disabled parking and other facilities exist,” read the statement.
She said that the reason she used that particular parking space was that she was instructed to park there.
“The decision to park in that bay was not frivolous as I was instructed to park in there by the food establishment, given that this was a quick pick up which did not require me waiting long or leaving the car.
“I at no point refused anyone access to this parking and this was the point I tried to explain to the lady before we had the altercation.”
Concluding her statement, she apologized to everyone who was offended. “Once again I apologize to everyone who was offended by my actions.”
About two months ago, she made headlines after appearing on Lasizwe’s popular Drink or Tell The Truth series on YouTube. The star ruffled a few feathers when she revealed that kissing Schumaker on The Queen Mzansi was very uncomfortable for her.
“My worst scene will always be kissing a man on the show. It’s very uncomfortable kissing someone that you don’t know on the show that you don’t have an actual relationship with. So all the scenes I have done with Schumacher were very uncomfortable. But he is such a nice guy. He is such a great actor. He made it very easy for me. Genuinely I hate those scenes.” She said.
Kissing Phila Mazibuko on Rhythm City was also uncomfortable for her. “To kiss someone, you don’t know for the first time, you don’t know where they come from. For what? It was the worst,” she added.
