However, when the match began, it was nothing like a normal boxing event. Instead of throwing punches, the two celebrities wrestled and tumbled around the ring, creating a scene that resembled a comedy sketch more than a sporting event.
Videos of the match went viral online, showing Zodwa and Manaka running and rolling on the floor, but never landing a punch. The audience was entertained by their antics, but also confused by what they were watching.
The online feud between Zodwa and Manaka added to the comedy factor. Manaka mocked one of Zodwa’s videos, where she said she might wear her infamous G-string for the match. Manaka said she was not afraid of Zodwa and asked her Instagram fans to support her, creating the hashtags #TeamManaka and #TeamZodwa.
Fans joined in on the fun, posting comments like “I can’t wait for the fight” and “I’ve cleared my schedule for that day.” The event became a must-watch spectacle, but for very different reasons than expected.
Now that the match is over, fans are still wondering who won this hilarious showdown. The match may not have met the standards of a regular boxing event, but it certainly made an impression on everyone who saw it.
The celebrity boxing craze in South Africa is still going strong, with this funny fight between Zodwa Wabantu and Manaka Ranaka being the latest example. As fans await the official verdict, one thing is certain – this extraordinary encounter in the ring has written a memorable page in the history of celebrity clashes.
