TV and radio personality Bujy got a serious tongue lashing from fast food chain, Nando’s over the word, “boujee bowl”.
The English language happens to have a word, bourgeoisie, which has, over the years, been shortened to boujee. This word, used to describe the wealthy middle-class, inspired TV personality Junior Bikwa’s stage name and even features on Migos’ song, Bad and Boujee.
And, on a random Wednesday afternoon, Bujy felt the need to fetch Nando’s for its latest meal, named “Boujee Bowl”. He did so because he felt the company was expropriating his “name” without compensation.
“I’ve been Bujy stepping in the game since 2009 and Nando’s SA comes with its Boujee Bowl as if the name is new… Nando’s must pay respect where it’s due…”
I’ve been Bujy stepping in the game since 2009 and @NandosSA comes with its Boujee Bowl as if the name is new… 😳 Nandos must pay respect where it’s due… I honestly don’t understand how they can just get away with using my name and not pay respect! pic.twitter.com/hKFWVQveyP

Bizarre right? Anyway, Bujy should have gotten better counsel before he went tagging Nando’s on Twitter, because the food chain is well known for its spicy clapbacks on these social media streets. And, man, did it shut him down!
“Bujy… O ntse o phela (you still alive)? But then again… If you lived up to your name you would’ve had your own bowl.”
