- Tombstone designer and manufacturer, Lebogang Khitsane's memorial service was something to remember
- His sister accused his wife of adultery and it soon became a viral video
- Saffas are re-enacting the viral video as the #RakgadiChallenge
Just days ago the memorial service for tombstone designer and manufacturer, Lebogang Khitsane, was aired live on eNCA. This after he tragically died from renal failure. During the live broadcast, Khitsane's sister, Semati Moedi, accused Khitsane's wife of having an affair. Moedi was quoted saying:
"Lebogang was in pain. It turns out his wife had brought a man into the house."
She then takes a step to the side, points out a finger and says "Don't you dare," before a water bottle is flung in her direction. This dramatic turn of events at the memorial has inspired the #RakgadiChallenge in South Africa. "Rakgadi" refers to one's paternal aunt.
#RakgadiChallenge stared trending on Twitter yesterday and this morning with South Africans putting their own little twist on the viral video. Briefly.co.za took a look at some of the more popular videos of the #RakgadiChallenge.
Briefly.co.za previously reported on the #RakgadiChallenge after a woman posted a video where a trash can was thrown at her. South Africans can manage to turn even the most dramatic moments into hilarious social media videos.
After Lebogang Khitsane's sister decided to reveal to the entire country that his wife had 'brought men into their home', #Rakgadi started trending on social media.
Saffas then decided to make it a challenge, which in turn led to the now-viral #RakgadiChallenge. One woman hilariously re-enacted the moment and instead of having a small object thrown at her, as in the actual case, someone hurled an entire trash can at her. The video was shared on Twitter by social media user @AwodimpleA.
Within just a couple of hours, the video was viewed over 120 000 times and South Africans could not contain their laughter. Many social media users reacted to the video with hilarious memes, some even saying they're leaving "Satafrika".
