Meriam Kaxuxwena Controversy


Meriam has been involved in several clashes with the who's who in the entertainment industry.

In 2019 she was involved in a fight with former Big Brother winner Dillish Mathews. The two slay queens battled it out at a club in Pharaohs in Windhoek.  According to media reports, witnesses say Dillish pulled MK’s wig, threw her off the couch and broke her nails and her Xmax plus phone.

The two models then took the battle to Twitter. Meriam, who claimed she doesn't like to fight, wrote on Twitter that she has gotten a restraining order against Dillish.

“I already opened a case against them. I told I don’t want to fight and they still came after me. I am not a violent person and I will never fight with anyone even when I told them I do not want to fight in public,” Mk responded to a tweet from one of the witnesses.

The supermodel made headlines in 2016 for failing to pay her models who were part of her lingerie show.  Meriam hosted a swimwear launch show - one of the best the country had seen, in November 2015, but failed to pay 32 of the models who participated. 

“Yes, I didn’t pay them yet because I moved the payment date to February 12. Each will get N$1000, altogether it is N$32 000 since they were 32 models. I will pay them, you don’t use models for free, modelling is a business so I was going to pay them after the show but ended up not having enough since I was counting on some people that were supposed to sponsor my show but they disappointed me,” she told the media. 

Meriam was also involved in another fight with local songstress Blossom in 2018. Blossom compared her looks to Meriam's after Meriam posted a photo on Instagram. Meriam didn't take this well. She threw shade at Blossom and accused her of using her for fame since her music career has died.
