The internet never forgets. 

On Thursday, TV and radio personality Anele Mdoda became a trending topic on Twitter when Kelly Rowland posted an Instagram photo wearing the same swimsuit the 947 radio host wore on a trip to the Maldives.

Here's why. In 2019, Anele weighed in on Sizwe Dhlomo's thoughts that Kelly is the "best looking" member of Destiny's Child, saying: "Kelly looks amazing with makeup. Take that make up off then it's tickets. I have receipts. [sic]"

Kelly's fans were naturally not happy with Anele's revelation, and since making the controversial remark, Anele finds herself trending every time Kelly makes headlines. 

This time, it was Kelly's vacation photo dump that fueled the fire when a social media user pointed out that Kelly and Anele were wearing the same swimsuit in their recent social media posts.

"The swimsuit, the setting, and the dates these pictures were posted, make a very compelling argument that Kelly Rowland did this on purpose to make a very loud and clear point," tweeted @MvelaseP.

Twitter users have since been having a field day, trying to find a connection between the posts, and colourful theories of personal vendettas are rife.
