The pricy gift really had Mzansi feeling like these two business associates may be a little more than good friends.

"SBWL to be captured."

"I'm pretty sure if beyikhona ngabe he bought it first."
"Business partner yakho ngu BucwaMichael ?"
"When you upgrading to iPhone, please ngcela ungiphe leyo."

Woman tells friend she's broke, gets R10k: "I want a friend like that too"
In related news, Briefly News previously reported that we all want that one friend who will show up for us with little to no questions asked when we need them.
This is especially true for rainy days when you are at the bottom of the pits. The converse is, however, truer as it is often on those 'bad days' where it feels like all of the friends in your life have suddenly disappeared.
Luckily, one Mzansi woman had anything but a hard time reaching out and getting the help she needed, on the spot too, showing us all a thing or two about friendship goals.
Taking to the socials, the user @zindziswa_m posted a screengrab of an EFT deposit of R10 000 before tweeting "sent" two minutes later, confirming that her 'blesser best friend' had just done the right thing.
Accompanying the screenshot of the notification was a short caption that read:
"I said I’m broke my friend send me 10k."
Social media users gobsmacked, many ask for rich friends
Undoubtedly, Mzansi had a beaming reaction to the tweet, as many gushed with one user, whose handle is @Esterrrrr_ asking:
"How exactly did you tell your friend you are broke? I need the exact words, please."
Other users soon joined in and shared their two cents' worth with the tweet subsequently going viral and garnering more than 7 000 likes with close to 2 000 retweets.
Nearly 900 people commented on the post. Briefly News takes a look at some of the reactions below.
"For me and my friends to be rich and broke so that we'll do this for each other."
"Your friend is also broke. A real friend would have given you a luxury car as well to drive the brokenness out of your system."
"I hope yall seeing what other friends are doing. There's nine of you here, I'm broke and I expect to see 90k by the end of the day."
"Look at what other friends are doing."
One vocal user @muks15052496 tore into the tweet, highlighting some sentimental points. He said:
"Sharing is a good thing, send some R1000 or R2000 as a gift, it's still a good gesture ... R10K that's a statement. Money doesn't define friendship but its disposition is a huge sacrifice for someone who gives."
To which the original user @zindziswa_m said:
"10k is not a statement in our friendship. Sorry if it's a statement in your friendship."
