Following the announcement from President Cyril Ramaphosa on Sunday night, South Africans have reacted to the renewed and immediate ban on alcohol with #AlcoholHasFallen….
US hip-hop trio Migos is making its way to Durban and Joburg this October, and South Africans are excited to say the least.

The band, known best for track-turned-meme “Bad and Boujee”, was trending in second on Twitter behind the #ZumaVote by noon Tuesday — which didn’t escape South Africans’ notice.
Engathi the Migos tour dates where released today to distract the youth from the vote of no confidence?

There’s no doubt that the youth were distracted, with most trying to figure out how to pay for the tickets that range from R350 to R790.
I definitely need a sponsor 😭😭😭

And of course, the haters took the time to make their opinions known, while some were just in denial.
