Johannesburg - When the first part of the 2105 MTV Hottest MC list dropped on Thursday, you just knew controversy would follow.
As positions 10 through 6 were announced, social media went berserk - more so when King Kwesta was placed at number 6!
Kwesta's legion of social media followers nearly shut down Twitter in protest, but their criticism had nothing on Kid X, who took to Twitter to give his thoughts on the list and being placed at number 8.

In fact, the list caused such a fuss that host Sizwe Dhlomo had to take to social media to address the hate and reveal the criteria used in compiling the list.
All we ever wanted to do was make the shows we like & help shape the culture. The Lord blessed us with that ability... ????— Sizwe Dhlomo (@SizweDhlomo) November 26, 2015
