Little did he know that the ever-alert Mzansi social media users would spot his wrist watch and make that the centre of attention. His watch straps were old and worn out making the watch a prime target for the mob. Many suggested that he should have bought a new watch instead of an expensive phone. Twitter user Logan_amadu said:

"Congratulations. When are you buying a new watch?"

His real name is Ephraim Ramashu from Limpopo and he has admitted that the love of designer labels runs deep in his veins.
