Nkosi Sikelel’ i-Who?

Now, it’s not exactly a *high five* moment that Ard Matthews (of Just Jinger fame) managed to forget the words to Nkosi Sikelel’ iafrika, our NATIONAL ANTHEM last night after the Bok Selection on live TV. (Never trust a Jinjer)

What IS a High-five moment is the lol-fest that has emerged as South Africans unite in their bemused outrage. (Yes, yes. Ard apologised. Yes, yes Рwe forgive him (kind of) BUT if you are a performer and your entire job is to perform Рof course people have a right to mock you when you mess up a performance.)

(in case you are under a rock, here is the link to the youtube of the moment)

Twitter exploded, first with indignation, then with humour… it was a thing of beauty. We united. No news is good news, and BAD news – is good twitter.

The advertisers followed suit today with GEMS like these:


*High five* to Nando’s,Klipdrift & Savanna (And to the selected Boks)

And a last epic Jumping high five to all South Africans who KNOW the Anthem!

*High Five*

    Hey Ard
    You are a muso, all muso’s muff it, if they don’t then they are not real, you are real dude, a proper music man in every sense of the word, for those sados who have never played, will never understand, guess for this reason their opinion don’t count. You keep up the magic work, you have proved you are human, let the wingers rotate on any digit they choose (Without Vaseline)
