DJ Maphorisa’s violent reaction to the pressure of ‘SMEG’.
Record producer and musician DJ Maphorisa got flak for giving in to the “SMEG” pressure when he shared an image of his kitchen including the posh household appliance brand.
The saga started on Saturday when the Scorpion King posted an image on social media.
Shortly after, tweeps commented as they felt his kitchen was too small for an artist of his caliber.
The “Phoyisa” hitmaker posted a snap of himself, standing within the middle of his kitchen, and captioned it, “Cooking.”

While many were debating the dimensions of the kitchen, others started scrutinizing it, remarking the dirty walls and dishes.
Aside from many being unimpressed, some commented on the absence of pricy appliances.
Someone even asked the star, “I don’t see SMEG… does one even have it, bro?”
To which Phori simply replied with a clap back, he asked “wena do u have nah??
The tweets continued on Tuesday, after the heated Twitter discussion about the muso’s appliances, empty containers, and messy kitchen, the muso ceded and cleaned up.
After all the diligence, he then flaunted his spotless kitchen kitted with several SMEG appliances.
He wrote: “Well…Ke tla ring (what am I able to say)”

But tweeps were still not happy. This time, he received backlash for succumbing to the SMEG trend like Somizi Mhlongo and a number of other celebs.
Below are a number of Twitter reactions.
“So you being controlled by people…you’ve now bought yourself a SMEG,” commented Sanele Nkosi.
Phori you’re wrong, you shouldn’t have bought SMEG for his or her satisfaction. You should’ve just cleaned the kitchen.
SMEG doesn’t necessarily prove anything. But big ups the place is organized now,” commented Mbuyane Ngcebo.
