“Can someone tell me if it’s true that in South Africa you must have a bribe to obtain a Driver's Licence? Is there someone who didn't pay a bribe? What's your story?”, she posted on Twitter.

Her post generated an interesting discussion on Twitter, with tweeps sharing their driver’s license stories- some even admitted to bribing the officials.

"Its true mina nje i didn't bribe that bitch and she started saying that i won't pass vele. And then she said i didn't observe iphelile i test so nje ukugwaza into ekhona futhi kuwo wonke", another tweep posted.

Out of curiosity, tweeps then asked Brown if she gave a bribe to an official. According to the singer, they told her if she did not have R2000, she would fail no matter how good she might be.

But, luckily, she had an honest officer taking her for her test, so she passed without having to buy him a ‘cold drink’.

The discussion soon turned into jokes, with tweeps then started joking about how one goes about offering a bribe, aka a ‘cold drink’.
