Luxury social media influencer Sarah Langa decided to get spicy this week and school Mzansi on wearing fake designer shoes. Sarah ruffled a few feathers when she showed off her Amina Muaddi designer heels.
She posted a picture on Instagram to show her fans what “the real ones” look like with a caption that simply read “the real ones”. While some applauded Sarah for educating those who shop at Small Street, others dragged her for being unnecessary and said she was bragging. Some of Mzansi’s biggest stars like Bonang Matheba, Terry Pheto and Boity all commented on the post.
Even an account in socialite Buhle Mkhize’s name weighed in, telling Langa she shouldn’t have posted something to “ridicule” others. Wow awulwi mntakamah but uyalwa. I’ve never and will never buy or wear anything fake but we shouldn’t do this. A lot of our fellow South Africans wear these and some of them come from backgrounds that don’t even allow the opportunity to know there’s a real version.
She suggested Langa be more humble. I’m fellow team rich husband before kuthiwe nginomona. Every girl who owns these shoes will likely feel ridiculed wearing them after today. Let’s stay humble on top. I’d followed cause you are beautiful, stylish and love travel as much as I do. And yes I’ve written a whole novel at a risk of being barked at, anginendaba.
