Exploitation Claims Emerge: DJ Zinhle Accused of Overpricing Era Handbags
DJ Zinhle is under scrutiny as accusations surface, suggesting that she may be exploiting her fans by allegedly inflating the prices of her Era handbags.
According to social media users, these bags bear a striking resemblance to those originally sourced from the Chinese fast fashion brand Shein or a similar supplier.
New Era Collection Unveiled
This week, DJ Zinhle showcased several new pieces from her Era fashion accessories collection, introducing a cute mini bucket bag available in pink and black.
Identical Bags Raise Eyebrows
Sharp-eyed social media users quickly pointed out that the bag, excluding the Era logo, closely resembled one available on the fast fashion app Shein.
Adding fuel to the fire, the Shein version was priced at a mere third of the cost compared to DJ Zinhle’s offering.
Backlash from Disappointed Consumers
Naturally, discontent spread among consumers on social media platforms.
Many expressed their disappointment and frustration with DJ Zinhle’s alleged pricing strategy, accusing her of overcharging for items that might share the same origin as those from Shein or a comparable supplier.
Quotes from Social Media Users:
@khulanimalambe: “Buy local, only to find out you are buying a logo on a Shein app.”
@shazzzy__: “She didn’t even try.”
@wendymay13: “Both Shein and Zinhle buy from the same supplier in China. Probably for R30.”
@lelethuzintle: “1/10 for creativity.”
@joy_zelda: “DJ Zinhle has become GalxBoy. Why put a logo on something that is not yours? She’s a disgrace.”
GalxBoy’s Similar Accusations
DJ Zinhle is not the only celebrity facing accusations of deceptive practices.
Thathiso Dube, the founder of Galxboy, has also been alleged to rebrand items sourced from China, mirroring the controversy surrounding the fast fashion industry.
In light of these allegations, DJ Zinhle and Galxboy find themselves in the midst of scrutiny, raising questions about the authenticity of their fashion offerings and the transparency of their business practices.Share on Facebook «||» Share on Twitter «||» Share on Reddit «||» Share on LinkedIn
