Lasizwe continues to deliver quality material on his YouTube channel and often goes viral with his hilarious skits. However, his latest video, titled ‘Waking Up To Afrikaans’ has had the country in stitches.
In the video, Lasizwe plays his alter ego Nomatriquency. Nomatriquency is dating an Afrikaans boy named Dirkie (played by Divan Laing) and has had enough of being woken up to Afrikaans.
The video starts off with Dirkie making Nomatriquency a delicious South African breakfast (where else can we find boerewors on a breakfast menu). But, despite the sweet gesture, Nomatriquency just wants Dirkie to have a conversation in English. “I can’t do this Afrikaans thing, every day twenty-four-seven-trappe-van-vergelyking… your mouth is giving me flashbacks of High School, I failed that language with flying colours,” Nomatriquency tells her lover in this hilarious clip.
The video has been praised by many for hitting the nail on the head when it comes to bilingual relationships. While this particular clip looks at couples who speak either English or Afrikaans as their first language, the clip resonates with so many around the country – no matter what language they speak at home.
