3. Sjava embraces his inner taxi driver and leaves his fans in stitches

Sjava scooped four impressive awards at the SAMAs on Saturday. The award-winning artist was the talk of the town for another reason though - his outfit choice.

It is nothing new that Sjava has no interest in fashion or flashy materialistic things. He’s a pretty simple, down to earth Zulu man who appreciates the deeper things. Briefly.co.za learnt that Sjava’s SAMAs outfit had him trending on social media.

It seems that Mzansi felt he could have put in a tad more effort. They called it ‘the taxi driver’ look. Instead of firing back and trying to defend himself, Sjava owned his taxi driver persona and laid it on thick.

Gahahaha, Sjava is such a character.

4. Dad's discussion with baby goes viral – millions are going gaga

Social media users are going gaga for a video that shows off an entertaining conversation between a father and his baby. The pair were caught on camera as they discussed the season finale of a TV show.

Although the baby can hardly speak, he tries his best and uses hand gestures to get his point across.

The dad adds to the entertainment as he tries his best to interpret what the baby is saying and responds accordingly.

Shanieke Pryor filmed her husband, Deztin, and their baby boy, and proceeded to share the video via Facebook. Pryor didn’t foresee the impact it would have, but it’s already attracted a staggering 35 million views since it was shared on Tuesday.

Good Things Guy reported on the beautiful story and deemed it to be one of the cutest things they’ve ever seen
