In other news, Nando's has once again found itself having to distance itself from a fake ad that was probably made by an overly enthusiastic Nando's fan. The ad reads: "Wa bhora, sometimes we share but sometimes it's a no."

The fake ad comes after Moja Love's Rea Tsotella presenter, Bishop Israel Makuma, was outed for sending a woman a recording in which he asks her whether or not she is gonna "give him some", to which she first responds no a number of times and then finally gives in.
