As could be expected, the reaction was wild.

South Africans wanted to be helpful and flooded Cardi with information and advice.

From warnings about the load-shedding issue to how to best enjoy amasi, peeps wanted to share everything they could.

Some even gave the musician a friendly warning; they told her to be wary of local rapper AKA and poet Ntsiki Mazwai. They're bad news, according to some peeps.
