Nandi Madida is at the centre of an ongoing Twitter debate which was triggered by her ‘motivational’ tweets.
Her attempt at motivating children took a left turn when she attached life’s achievements to age.
It is without a doubt that she has achieved many things in her life. Not many 30 something-year-olds can afford to shop for their kid land to create a farm. numerous people thought Nandi was speaking from some extent of privilege.
Even though the songstress and business woman’s intentions were good, the bulk argue that her wording should are different as she has now discouraged a bunch of 30-year-olds who haven’t yet reached their goals.
Even though her message clearly is directed at a particular group of individuals who are coming from well-off families and have all the luxuries within the world, some argue that her placing an age stamp to how life should go, reduces the standard and aiming to her message.
“I always say this to children who add my company. The ages 18-25 yrs are so critical. If u waste that point being a rebel wasting ur parents money, being cool, hanging around wrong circles etc. U waste such a lot time & before u realize it u’re 30 with nothing to point out for your life,” she wrote.
The 32-year-old then adds that her being disciplined and taking note of her parents got her to where she is currently.
“life goes by so quickly! per annum counts.. minimize your regrets and do the proper thing. take hold of your life!” she concluded.
Her message clearly landed as an insult to majority of Twitter and she or he sparked a huge debate, swiftly taking her to the highest of the trends list.
Here are a number of the arguments:
I say this as a 32 year old woman.. all the people I know who are successful were all very focused when they were young, still had fun but were humble enough to listen to those who had lived life a little longer.. Listening to my parents good advice saved me from so much.

I think Nandi meant well but she speaks from a point of privilege.
Nobody knows what life has planned for us. When I was 25 I looked very successful- at 40 I’m still trying to find my feet.
There is no right way to do life. We are just doing the best we can with what we have.

Nandi was highly misinterpreted
There is nothing wrong with being 30 and having nothing when things didnt work out for you or you didnt have luck
But being 30 and having nothing because you chose to be cool and hang around in corners living off parents money can’t be normalized pic.twitter.com/qceqmOQbvt
