On Wednesday, a video was shared on social media which had South Africans laughing out loud. The footage showed a man explaining the meaning of the #Uphephela song, but, he was way off.
A video made its way on social media on Wednesday, which showed a white man translating the popular EFF song, Uphephela.
The video was widely shared on social media and it had Zulu speaking tweeps in stitches. Man's Not Barry Roux also posted the video on his Twitter page, captioning it:
"E reng google translate mo ngwaneng. #uphephela."
The man in the video claims the word 'Uphephela' means "be safe" in Zulu. However, Briefly.co.za gathered the translation for the word is 'helicopter'.
He then goes on to say Malema uses the song to get young South Africans to vote for the EFF.
Black Twitter could not contain their laughter at the man's failure to accurately translate the word, and song.
Needless to say, tweeps flooded the social media platform with their views on the video and we took a look at some of the best reactions.
Social media user @Landles64023942 commented: "#uphephela is giving white racists heart attacks."
Rama, who goes by the Twitter handle @Rama58255872, added: "You can tell-my brother is having sleepless nights. Even the New Dawn is not giving him hope. The ANC is done mafhethu."
