“This is beautiful but things cannot remain this way. Change is not coming fast enough. Township businesses are not being supported enough. We do not have access to finance in order to scale up our businesses in order to hire young people. We need to work in fixing this.”

"I thought it couldn't get any worse": SA reacts to English duo singing Xhosa

Still covering news on singing, Briefly News ran an article that a young South African woman recently headed to Twitter to share a video clip of a man and a woman singing a Xhosa song together.

In the clip, the man compliments the woman's voice with a guitar. "Rent free,"@Zimmie_ captioned the video of the songbirds.

Locals did not seem to like it and made this increasingly clear in the comment section of the post. Many of them thought that the woman was not pronouncing the Xhosa lyrics with the accent they deserved.
