- August is a celebration of everything it entails to be a woman in Mzansi
- Social media saw #GirlsWithMercs go viral as SA babes showed off their success with snaps of their lux whips
- Even those who couldn't participate weren't left salty, but rather inspired by the impressive show
South African ladies caught the nation's attention with #GirlsWithMercs topping the charts with thousands of peeps joining the fun.
The trend was seemingly started by Sipokazi Lilitha, a pharmacist that owns her own store, who encouraged her sisters to take a moment to show off a little.
Mzansi ladies definitely didn't leave Lilitha hanging and responded with their own snaps posing alongside their rides.
Many drew inspiration from the post and joked that they were joining in to 'manifest' their own set of wheels, inspired to take their hustle to the next level.
Take a look at how positive the responses were to the moment:
@Blonx_sa- "This thread is thoroughly inspiring! You ladies have no idea, Wow congrats to all of you!"
@XXAngie_XX_- "One day I'll come back to this thread and participate like other kids!"
@thaaando_- "Congratulations to all you beautiful ladies, may God keep blessing you more and more!"
@CentreforManag1- "This is an awesome hashtag. Different and refreshing. We are so used to #GirlsRunningAfterGuysWithPolos trolling and trashing these streets with their vitriol and toxicity. Some positivity is welcome. We celebrate you #GirlsWithMercs. We love you."
It's amazing to see Mzansi allowing these ladies their time in the limelight with such support and admiration!
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za reported that DJ Shimza has shown Mzansi that he is definitely a mommy's boy. He revealed that he surprised his mom with a new whip, a BMW SUV.
He captioned the post with a heart-melting comment: "I am because of you."
Shimza owes his mom a lot, she raised him as a single parent and he is always praising her.
