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.
