4. Boyfriend confronts bae's crush then inexplicably asks him for airtime

A jealous man confronted his girlfriend’s crush via social media. He initially issued threats but then decided to ask the crush for airtime after the misunderstanding had been resolved. The chat went viral attracting nearly 12 000 likes and left many in disbelief

A man came across photos of another man when perusing his girlfriend’s mobile phone. She had been saving his photos and sending it to her female friends. The man was immediately consumed by jealousy and assumed the 2 were having an affair. He did some investigation and identified the crush as Phuti Ramoroka. The jealous bae, who we will refer to as Eric, confronted Ramoroka via the Whatsapp instant messenger platform and warned him to stay away from his girlfriend, Nandi.

Eventually, the 2 men agreed that Ramoroka would block Nandi from his Facebook account. Just as the dust had settled and Ramoroka asks Eric to delete his number, another twist ensues as Eric asks Ramoroka to buy him a R12 airtime voucher. Ramoroka is clearly in disbelief and responds: “Lord why me?” Incredibly, he succumbs and purchases the airtime.
