It’s a story of taking a trip down memory lane for one social media user who posted a video clip of adults playing childhood games in the street. The lady has dropped a cool video showing adults as just being 'kids'.
According to @LucyM_More, she says she would like to recreate the games played in the clip and has asked for volunteers to relive the memories.
South Africans have quickly hit the comments button and some are hurt as they didn’t get such a privilege after growing up in the suburbs and not in the townships or rural areas.
The post reads:
“Sbwl to recreate this any volunteers?”
