A young woman made a meal for her parents but added a twist to the mix.

Rejoice Matsuis, who uses the handle @xx.toxic_rey on TikTok, shared a video of herself spoiling her parents with a good meal on the social media platform. However, while preparing the pap, the daughter added pink food colouring.

The short clip cuts to Rejoice serving her mother with a plate covered with a pot's lid. Once the mother lifts the lid and sees the pap, a look of confusion takes over her face.

What is pap?

According to the local publication South Africa, pap is a type of porridge made from maise meal. It can be enjoyed runny, soft, or stiffly during any mealtime.

The publication adds:

"It is a staple in many homes, mainly thanks to its cost and versatility. Pap can be enjoyed with sugar and milk for breakfast or meat and vegetables for lunch and supper. It can even be watered down to make a tasty drink called Mageu."

Netizens find humour in parents' reactions

The video became viral, reaching over a million views on the popular app. A few people also took to Rejoice's comment section to mimic the mother and share similar stories they had with their parents.
