President Cyril Ramaphosa is set to address the nation on Tuesday, 21 April, on additional economic and social relief measures amid lockdown.
The Presidency announced the news on Twitter earlier today and it has had Mzansi social media users freaking out.
Take a look at the Presidency's tweet below:
The last time Ramaphosa spoke to the nation he announced an extended lockdown and his "My fellow South Africans" phrase became one of the most dreaded phrases in the country.
After it was revealed the president is to address the nation, "Fellow South Africans" started trending online and Mzansi social media users shared hilarious memes about the phrase.
Briefly.co.za took a look at some of the best "Fellow South Africans" tweets:
Previously, we reported Somizi landed in hot water over a lockdown "joke". Minister of Transport Fikile Mbalula was not happy with Somizi Mhlongo, so upset that he took legal steps against the Idols SA judge.
A video surfaced on social media of Somizi telling his Metro FM workmate Dineo Ranaka that the lockdown would be extended, hours before President Cyril Ramaphosa made the announcement.
Somizi told Dineo that he heard the news from "Fikile". Mbalula was incensed by the fact that Somizi said that he told him that the lockdown would be extended before the president made the announcement.
Now, South Africans are making jokes that Somizi should tell them what is up before Ramaphosa speaks tonight.
