A young lady has served up some serious comedy early this morning about the much-talked-about Gqeberha - Port Elizabeth's new legal name. Heading to Twitter, @khanyisa95 shared a clip of how she feels people from GQ are adjusting to the new name.
In the hilarious clip, Khanyisa can be seen doing a number of the usual daily activities that people do, such as brush their teeth, shave their beards, stare out of the window and have a drink, all while pondering Port Elizabeth's new Xhosa name.
"People of Gqeberha woke up like this... #Gqeberha," she hilariously captioned the totally relatable Twitter clip.
Soon enough the clip reached nearly 10 000 views. Many locals, including former DA leader Mmusi Maimane, headed to the comment section to laugh out loud at the funny clip. Read some of their comments below:
"Gqherherere Gqhobobobo... Sis deserves a follow."
"Listen she’s top tier!"
"As for the shaving, mara."
"Nothing to see here, just Xhosa folk wildin."
"This is legit lyrics to a amapiano chooon... gherere!"
"Can we talk about that 'Gqeberha' at 0:21."
Briefly.co.za previously reported that yesterday it was announced that various South African places would be undergoing name changes. While many of the new names were revealed, Gqeberha seems to be the country's favourite.
Many South African have headed online to share their opinion on Port Elizabeth's new name. While some think that it is very difficult to pronounce, others think that it is very beautiful and suitable for the area.
"If amaXhosa can say 'Port Elizabeth' with ease, you, too, can learn to say Gqeberha. I didn't think this needed to be said, but I see it does. This tweet isn't (just) about how anyone pronounces Gqeberha…Much like renaming any place isn't just about changing a name."
