In more uplifting news about the police, Briefly News reported that two police officers have crept into many hearts after they were recorded breaking it down to a lit Amapiano song. In the clip that was shared by a TikTok user on the app, the two cops are fully clothed in their signature blue police uniform.
While one of them takes the spotlight and dances confidently for the camera placed in front of him, the shorter of the two stands at the back sporting a kind of shy look on his face, yet he also showcases his skills despite being visibly more nervous.
The two are no strangers to the camera and a quick scroll through @lwandileqeja's TikTok account will prove this to be the case as another couple of clips of the two of them dancing together clearly become visible.
Meanwhile, locals have had a lot to say about the clip in the comment section of the post. Many seemed to think the young cop in the front was quite handsome and skilled. Read a few of their very interesting comments below:
"The tall guy is rocking guys."
"The tall guy in the front is killing it."
