South Africa has declared 10 April 2021 "Wendy Williams Day". Social media users have flooded the internet with posts honouring the US talk show host.
She was trending on Twitter over the weekend as thousands of South Africans paid tribute to the popular talk show host.
Back in March of this year the popular media personality declared that the 10th of April will be "Wendy Willams Day".
“Do you know what April 10th is?” she asked her audience. “I just found out myself. April 10th is Wendy Williams Day in South Africa — I am not lying.”
The reason for her declaring the "new national holiday" was due to the fact that her biopic Wendy Willams: Hot Topic and her documentary Wendy Williams: What a mess would be broadcast in South Africa on that day on the Lifetime channel on DSTV.
Briefly News took a look at what Mzansi had to say about the amazing Wendy Williams:
"It’s a Wendy Williams day but no one knows what must happen now."
"Today we are having a date with our girl Wendy Williams in South Africa 19:20 on lifetime....."
"Woke up today in anticipation of Wendy Williams Day, it should be fun, kana what are we celebrating again as South Africans with our newly found holiday?"
"Happy Wendy Williams day y'all ❤❤BTW to celebrate Wendy Williams Day Lifetime ch131 is premiering her Documentary and Movie about her tonight starting at 19:20 I can't wait."
The South African media personality said she could not hold back her excitement despite possibly violating an embargo.
She posted a picture of the virtual interview with the feisty Williams and captioned it:
“I am probably embargoed but Tsek Kubo!!! Miss Wendy Williams.”
