After the post, her followers hailed the comedienne for starring in the promotional video.
Award-winning gospel artist, Mai Respina Patai, was quick to praise Madam Boss for her innovation.
“Well done Tyra hauzi dofo uye hauna kumbova dofo kumeso kwaMwari.
“Jehova vakukuchengetedza, vairasisa vavengi kuti vasakubata, so meso evanhu ndiwo aiona dofo iwe usiri hako uchichengetedzwa.
“A great woman, a role model to several souls, an inspiration to multiple, keep up the good work,” she said.
Similar sentiments were echoed by one Anne Mugarisanwa, who described Madam Boss as a genius.
It, however, emerged that the crew behind the Madam Boss advert could have copied the whole concept from a similar bottled water brand.
The scripting and direction of the promotional advert was the same.
The only difference are the words used to describe how refreshing the water is.
According to the other brand’s website, their product was first launched in the United States in 1994.
With its unique purification system and great taste, it soon became the best-selling brand in that country.
As it stands, Madam Boss’ team were caught in the mix which could have been avoided with a little bit of research.
Initially the idea was for there to be something close to this one done. I was up for the task since I’ve done some work for them before. However… they went silent. pic.twitter.com/dmnlXm15aa
