- A social media user has recently caught the flaming reprimand of Nando's after his outlandish attempt to claim the plaudits
- The user @Siyethemba02 posted a picture of his best lunch serving, claiming that he'd put his heart on the plate in the attempt
- The fast-food chain, famous for its flame-grilled chicken, quickly set the record straight with the ambitious cook much to the funny of others on the socials
Ever put together a signature dish with all your favourite takeaway bits, took a picture and shared it claiming that you cooked it all?
Looking at it closer though, your brain might tell you it looks pretty Nando's-inspired. The fast-food chain soon caught on and threw some major shade on the inspired cook.
The Mzansi social media streets, seeing this and wanting their own piece of the action, soon erupted; reacting with a cacophony of colourful comments to Nando's tweet which read:
"You can cook, mara identity theft e kana (but such identity theft)? Ema nyana ka bo (take a break with) scammer [things]. Asseblief!"
