- DJ Tira recently shared a video showing two boys singing along to his song
- What made the footage special was that fact that the boys were white and sang the song in fluent isiZulu
- Mzansi social media users were impressed by their talent but many were more interested in why they were wearing iziphandla
DJ Tira recently took to social media to share a video of two young white boys singing along to his track called Nguwe. The boys sang in fluent isiZulu and seemed to thoroughly enjoy the song.
He captioned the video:
"We Tira ubani lo mlungu?? Dankie @mehlemamba_ngidi inkosi yabelungu"
Although social media users were impressed by the boys, they were more interested in the fact that they were wearing iziphandla - animal skin bracelets that signify that a ritual to the ancestors was done. Many were amused and confused by why the boys would be wearing the sacred arm jewelry.
Insta user nkululekomzala said:
"Once white people adapt to black lives, they just generally look black"
"Leziphandla abazifakile (they are wearing)"
Meanwhile Briefly.co.za previously reported that DJ Tira believes he can handle being the next Minister of Arts and Culture.
A tweep recently suggested that Tira is the man for the job.
The DJ responded with, "I'm ready."
Earlier this year, Briefly.co.za reported that DJ Tira had done his bit for society by giving out free electricity vouchers to fans.
Briefly.co.za learned that he has chosen 10 random people and bought electricity for them.
Twitter was flooded by people posting their meter numbers and hoping to be one of the lucky 10 to receive a special Easter gift from DJ Tira.
Another artist who recently, albeit playfully, spoke of his lofty political aspirations is none other than AKA.
Earlier this week, #AKA4President trended after AKA started speaking about all the things he would do if her ever became President.
AKA was asked what he would do about the huge influx of undocumented foreign nationals who are flooding Mzansi on a daily basis.
