A young gentleman who had reason to be upset with his girlfriend received the silent treatment, although he claimed he was not in the wrong.

Siphuxolo Nyembe took to one of his TikTok accounts (@siphuxolonyembe8) to post a video of himself driving in a car with his girlfriend beside him in silence. The braided beauty rested her elbow on the car's armrest, her head in her hand and her eyes closed.
