Social media reacts to Wiseman's performance

As much as South Africans felt that Wiseman's appearance and voice matched the late energetic Kwaito star's, they were not sold on his dancing during the Nkalakatha performance.

This is how they responded to Khawula's video:

@MazzGc cautioned:

"He needs to be stopped before he ruins this."

@LeMenz85 suggested:

"He was supposed to watch every Mandoza performance and have a trained dancer or choreographer teach him the moves."

@Busaysofine predicted:

"No ways! Just from the performance, I know this movie will give 'lokshin bioskop' vibes."

@HellomissSammie laughed:

"He’s a bit all over the place."

@Richblackdude was disappointed:

"Not convinced, not convincing at all."
