Suzan Mutesi retorts against her hateful followers by sharing footage from Cardi B

The Challenge star Suzan Mutesi has broken her silence following claims that she has bought a million followers on Instagram.

The 36-year-old Sydney-based socialite took to social media to share footage of American rapper Cardi B’s infamous speech at the 2018 iHeartRadio Awards in response to jealousy from influencers.

“I want to thank my haters,” Cardi laughs in the clip. “They’re downloading my stuff so they can listen and trash talk about it, but it benefits me.”

The Challenge star Suzan Mutesi has broken her silence following claims that she has bought a million followers on Instagram.

The actress and influencer, who has been a fixture of the Sydney social scene for the past three years, blocked her social media pages last week after she was accused of being a ‘fake socialite’.

Jamie Azzopardi, a prominent Sydney stylist, accused the self-described ‘award-winning author’ of inflating her popularity with ‘fake’ followers on Instagram to gain access to red carpet events, endorsements and media appearances.

After months of rumors about her credibility, Azzopardi, who has known Mutesi for years, opened the floodgates by giving a revealing interview about her to the so dramatic podcast.

“I love how he went from 200,000 followers before lockdown to 1.2 million and is on a reality show where he represents influencers,” he said.

According to Azzopardi, publicly available statistics on Social Blade, a website that tracks analytics for social media platforms, prove that she “bought 75,000 followers” ahead of Sydney Fashion Week, and “challenged” Mutesi to prove That I was wrong.

She also claimed that Mutesi, 36, bought automated comments, views and likes in an attempt to match her Instagram engagement to her inflated follower count, a claim she denied to Daily Mail Australia.

‘Just release your ideas and I’ll stop talking. I admit I’m wrong, I don’t do it very often, but I will say publicly that I was wrong,” Azzopardi told the podcast.

Speaking to Daily Mail Australia last week, an emotional Ms Mutesi denied buying followers, saying her numbers were so high because she is ‘ambitious’.

However, Social Blade’s statistics show that his followers increased by several thousand at a time without explanation, which is extremely rare and often indicates bot activity.

There are also many cases where duplicate comments have been left on the same post, ostensibly to increase the engagement of the post.

In the photos, she appeared to have clumsily edited herself into stock footage of planes.

One image, posted by Mutesi in December 2020, shows her superimposed in front of a seaplane, her hand barely touching the side of the plane due to sloppy editing.

But speaking to Daily Mail Australia at the time, Mutesi denied editing his images, saying: “If it were [Photoshopped]I would have no problem owning it.’
