South African actress Natasha Thahane took to Twitter to recite a poem in isiZulu and fans reacted on the timeline. Natasha is a favourite actress in Mzansi and has been on shows such as Skeem Saam, Lockdown and Blood & Water to name a few.
Natasha shared a video of herself reciting the poem on social media. She was reading the poem off of her phone whilst someone filmed her. She then discarded her phone and spoke on her own.
She had song by Sjava playing in the background as she spoke fluently and clearly. Some fans were shocked that she was reading isiZulu so well. She was talking about abuse in the video.
Social media users in Mzansi shared their own opinions on the video and reacted differently to Natasha's bold move. Briefly.co.za put together a few reactions from Twitter.
Take a look at some of the reactions from social media below:
