If there's one thing celebrities (and everyone really) need to etch into their brain‚ is that Twitter will ALWAYS keep your receipts and given the chance will throw them back at ya... and that's exactly what they did to Lerato Kganyago.

The newly announced Project Runway SA host had to clarify the timeline of events that led to her latest gig after fans questioned her "credibility".

Back in April when news that Kganyago had resigned from Live Amp emerged‚ there were already rumours that she was headed to Mzansi Magic to present Project Runway SA.

A rumour she politely dismissed as false.

Fast forward to five weeks later‚ Kganyago was drowning in a pool of congratulatory messages after she was announced as the presenter for Project Runway SA.

While on any other platform‚ her initial denial may have been forgotten and even forgiven‚ but Twitter is just not that platform.

So some of her follows asked her why she "lied..."

Kganyago replied by saying that she apparently only got the gig three weeks after she resigned.

The TV personality gave all credit to the miracle working God‚ of course.

Whether you believe Kganyago is entirely up to you and in fact most of her fans weren't really bothered. They are just excited to see the presenter do her thang on TV.

Kganyago is just as excited.

"Thank you all for your kind words! Your love and support means the world to me! It still feels unreal. Really grateful for this amazing opportunity‚" she wrote on her Instagram.
