Mzansi's frivolous social media community is in stitches over a tweep's latest stunning claim of buying someone close to him a car.
Locals will recall this is as the same Twitter user who just weeks ago caused a stir on the bird app after claiming that he bought his maid an Audi as a reward for the good service she'd put in over the years.
But, in a sudden twist, online sleuths were quickly able to establish that the pic of the car he shared was, in fact, one previously posted on Facebook by Kwesta a few years back. The rapper had bought it and gone to the dealership to collect it, but not before sharing the news with his followers on social media.
So, it came as no surprise when @Shonny_SA once again pulled the same card, leaving fellow tweeps just as sceptical as before. To top it off, the reason he outlined for making the purchase was, to say the least, simply outlandish.

"Today, I surprised my younger sister with this baby. She passed her matric with a Bachelor's degree. I'm proud," the hilarious caption read.
Anyone with a close eye, and there were many such, would notice that there is no such thing as passing matric with a Bachelor's degree. However, what is the norm is receiving a Bachelor's degree pass with possible entry to one of the country's universities.
The car itself is a white Volkswagen Chico that has been widely circulated by others, also claiming to have bought the same car. It's pictured with a large golden bow on the bonnet and several balloons covering the windscreen.
The tweep's wittiness ensured the post earned massive traction as it attracted more than 7 300 likes, over 300 retweets, and a shade above 120 comments as locals took the mickey out of him, even making sure to remind him he wasn't the first on the app to "buy" the same car.
The butt of the joke
Briefly News brings readers some of the laughable reactions below.
"'Matric with a Bachelor's degree'? Hey, madoda!!"
"So, this car was bought by so many people? Who really owns this sh*tty car?"
"'She passed matric with a Bachelor's degree', ay she really deserves this car, dawg."
Woman buys her helper a new Polo Vivo
Elsewhere, Briefly News previously reported that in the biggest revelation of the year so far, a kind and caring employer was determined to either give her helper a heart attack or turn her into the happiest worker in Mzansi for a long time to come.
Heading to the timeline, @LondonLeeBae notified her followers of her intention to surprise the employee with the modest VW Polo Vivo as a present.
And if she was hoping to instigate a flood of reactions, she instead got a torrential burst after she shared a picture of the white-coloured whip.
The caption read:
"Today I'm going to surprise my helper. She [has] been good to me since day one."
