Let’s start all the way at the start of the year when Sizwe began his TL with a bang when he pulled a really unexpected “pneuma silver” stunt that left the streets shook!
Size topped the Twitter trends list when he got into a messy war with a tweep after he posted a snap of his three-wheeled bike with the caption “baby”. The Twitter user decided to shade Sizwe’s choice in rides, saying “esamagwala lesi” (meaning the bike is for cowards), implying that “real” men drive two-wheeled bikes.
Size and therefore the tweep soon had an exchange of words, which escalated to them eager to physically fight one another. Showing how serious he was about eager to take the fight to the streets, Sizwe sent his location in order that they could settle things face to face.
“I’m at 1 Saxon Road in Hyde Park immediately. I’ll wait …” he wrote dropping his location!
2. the start of the 2020 Vusi vs Sizwe twars
Obviously still angry over something, a couple of hours after the puma silver thing, Sizwe was dragging his while “war mate” Vusi, for filth.
In what would open the door for several other TL spicy exchanges between the pair, Sizwe continued on their documented beef when he came after Vusi after the motivational speaker shared his leadership tips for fulfillment within the corporate world.
Shortly after Vusi posted his lengthy thread meant to motivate budding entrepreneurs, Sizwe shaded his nemesis, saying: “Lol! Mans said interview the corporate like managers have hours to spare for somebody who’s trying to poach their employees.”
Size and Vusi went on to fight it out on the TL variety of times.

Then there was that point where Sizwe’s wardrobe nearly caused a social media shutdown when tweeps launched a manifest to mock his “rich white people” look.
The media personality’s name made it onto the trends list after DJ Black Coffee shared a snap of himself, Sizwe, and Maps Maponyane on Twitter.

4. Covid-19 hit, lockdown and therefore the banning of alcohol hit harder, till Sizwe announced his wine “give away competition”
The ban of the sale and distribution of alcohol had been in situ for nearly two months, as a part of the government’s lockdown regulations, when Sizwe tweeted that he was making a gift of 400 bottles of wine.
Needless to mention it didn’t take long for his followers to flock to the comments with hilarious responses with hopes to attain a bottle, or two, or six. it is also possible that he was joking but some were taking his word for it and were quite willing to expire their home address for that mail from Siz.
5. Sizwe made AKA — yes the rapper AKA — issue a public apology to his family!
2020 gifted Mzansi with a #AKAvsSizwe war. The war obvs spiraled out of control and saw AKA drag Sizwe’s grandpa, who many acknowledged through the war was a respected businessman who played a task within the fight for SA’s liberation from apartheid.
Size had to line the record straight about his grandfather’s legacy after AKA tried to tug his reputation through the mud during the #AKAvsSizwe tear.
The spicy exchange of words between rapper AKA and Sizwe had dominated the TL all week back in May. It all began when AKA had a public meltdown over his effect on Reebok that turned sour and therefore the “all-knowing” Sizwe made a discuss Twitter about how AKA was a talented artist but not an honest businessman.

8. Then it had been Sizwe vs Beehive after the guy claimed that “even Beyoncé doesn’t own her masters”
Size endured online heat after he weighed in on Kanye West’s rant about artists owning their masters by claiming that Beyoncé Knowles-Carter only owns half her masters.
It all began when Kanye aired his battle together with his record label, showing receipts that they were refusing to inform him what proportion his masters cost because they know he can afford to shop for them back.
Tweeps lost their minds when Sizwe made the claim about Bey and tweeps from everywhere the world, who thought they knew something about the matter, tried to debate with Sizwe. But anyone who knows Sizwe knows that the guy doesn’t backtrack … and he didn’t!
