Social media users in the country have been engaging in a tiff over how best to serve and enjoy amasi (sour cream).
What many thought was the conventional way of having amasi, with just uphuthu (a maize-meal porridge stirred into a crumb like texture) has been disputed by those who believe it best served with sugar, clearly sowing division in the republic of Mzansi.
Azania Mosaka has declared herself part of the sugar gang and cannot fathom how or why those on the other side of the fence just don't get it.
The whole purpose of amasi is to be sour, adding sugar is blasphemous.— Gugu, caller
I wonder who came up with Amasi with sugar. I cant even imagine how it taste like. Actually I don't wanna know. 😷😷😷😷— Ndaba (@OyamaBuso) July 21, 2017
Adding sugar when eating Amasi is like rearranging the Pirates logo.— Steve Biko's Ghost (@Chris_Mayimele) July 21, 2017
