US singer, Tevin Campbell, surprised the people of Mzansi by taking to social media and randomly posting a tweet in Setswana. South Africans got so excited they even said he could have some land.
The singer sent a simple goodnight message in Setswana:
"Robala sentle! Toro segolo SA."
He seemed to be sending the message directly to South Africans, but of course his many international followers also wanted to know what it meant. He translated the tweet saying that it meant: "Sleep well! Dream big South Africa!"
Mzansi social media users were both surprised and excited by the shout-out. Some even decided to give him his very own South African name - Tebogo.
It seems South African languages are taking centre stage around the globe since Trevor Noah spoke isiXhosa at the Academy Awards 2019.
Briefly.co.za reported that viewers were left amused when Trevor took to the stage to present the Best Picture of the Year nominee, Black Panther. He cracked a few universal jokes about growing up in the fictional Wakanda and then threw in an isiXhosa joke that had Mzansi in stitches.
