A video of broadcasters arguing live on air at the Namibian Broadcasting Corporation (NBC) News, has left everyone in stitches. The short clip which has gone viral on social media platforms features sports presenter Jessica and news anchor Elmarie Kapunda.

The two are having an argument during a live broadcast as Jessica is trying to correct her intro. Jessica is not realizing that they are indeed on air. In the clip, the anchor is heard introducing Jessica however Jessica corrects her β€œNo, we are not going to do that. You are just going to greet me and say "Take it away."

Elmarie is heard saying 'Jessica we are live," and there is an awkward moment of silence between them, and the director is forced to cut to a commercial swiftly. Jessica has been trending number one in Mzansi on Twitter and she is currently topping the Twitter trends list in the country.

The sports presenter has since reacted to the video to set the records straight stating that she forgot that they were live on-air and she was merely trying to correct her. She debunked claims that they beefing with her colleague.

"There’s no any beef between us, my colleague forgot the script and I was just trying to correct her but I forgot we were live. That’s it.
