There seemed to be an overwhelming consensus among South Africans on social media in response to a recently surfaced video of Gqom artist Dladla Mshunqisi's singing exploits during an apparent car trip.
In recent years before the Amapiano wave swept across the Mzansi music landscape, Mshunqisi, under the tutelage of record producer DJ Tira, emerged as among the artists who were front and centre of the genre, more so in KwaZulu-Natal, where it is widely thought to have found its roots.
But in the last two years or so, Mshunqisi appears to have disappeared off the grid, with little to no offerings coming from him. This could be attributed to Gqom's fading appeal in the wake of the hugely-popular Amapiano genre which has taken the country by storm.

In the clip that was posted on Twitter by Twitter user @kulanicool, the big-boned energetic entertainer can be seen delivering a reprisal of note while seated in the passenger seat of a Mercedes-Benz driving on the road.
As the song climaxes, he is seen breaking out into a smooth dance, swerving from left to right all while seated in his chair.
"Amapiano really saved us," read the caption.
The 37-second video garnered almost 36 000 views at the time of publication. However, Saffas generally appeared unimpressed by the singer's performance, lamenting the sheer aggression with which each successive note is delivered.
'Sing, just don't scream'
As usual, Briefly News took to the comments section to bring readers all the notable reactions to the post.
"But this would slap hard at the groove when everyone is drunk just before the club close. Imagine all of us shouting "Kuphi"."
"It’s the fake friends screaming 'kuphi' for me!"
"This is gonna ring in my head the whole day now."
Woman’s dancing while working out mesmerises Mzansi
South Africans know how to dance, that's one thing that's certain and a local lady proved just that. A Twitter user, @mofumahadi_K, shared a 37-second clip of her working out while shaking what her mama gave her.
Briefly News reported that the young lady, dressed in black workout gear, strapped into a machine danced her life away to Chicco, Mellow and Sleazy's Nkao Tempela.
She starts off in an upright position before rhythmically moving back and down. She makes her way up to the standing position and repeats as she moves her body like a worm. Her mesmerising hip movements and ability to keep herself in that position is quite shocking to most Saffas.
