The Proteas have just started their second last match of the 2019 World Cup Cricket tournament and we are playing against Sri Lanka. We elected to field first and the very first ball claimed a wicket. Neither teams have anything to lose but both neither also have nothing to win. The 2019 dream is over and all that remains now is to see how far down the ladder they will be placed respectively.  Both teams played kak, but unfortunately only the Proteas also looked like they were having a kak holiday the entire time. Like spoilt kid who gets annoyed at either  not enough or too kak presents, out of birthday or Christmas season. I mean jirre, if your team’s spirit is at lower levels than those of war torn Afghanistan then you need to take a hard look in the mirror.

I truly hope I am wrong though, so I will still watch the match with that slither of hope that they will maybe today look like they at least enjoy it a bit. Just playing for the sake of playing cricket today might actually help our team iron out whatever the fuck it is that got them all so tense and miff. Tune in to Showmax right now to stream the match live. Go klap an extended lunch break or smoke break. Get the app and watch it skelmpies on your phone if your boss is a complete doos.

But enough of this negativity! Sport is nie alles nie, Billy! South Africa has other talent and for the first time ever we ironically landed on America’s Got Talent. Sometime towards the end of last year the Ndlovu Youth Choir from Limpopo managed to land a live performance spot on Jacaranda FM. They sang the Zulu version of Ed Sheern’s Perfect.  Ralf Schmitt, the choir’s conductor said that the The ‘America’s Got Talent‘s organisation contacted them to come for an audition because  they saw the Jacaranda FM video and were blown away.
A few months later, the choir traveled to America for the audition. For their performance on America’s Got Talent, they sang Vici Sampson’s African Dream, to which Sampson earlier this week responded: “This is next level! You know how much I believe in the African dream. The Ndlovu Youth Choir is the future. They are the new tomorrow that I’m singing about in that song” 

For a group of kids to overcome adversities such as not having running water, coming from broken homes, below-the-breadline poverty, crime and… fuck, you know what? You actually know the story. You live here. Why don’t you watch this video and have a little secret cry and let it fill your heart with pride at the same time:

How was that, hey? This video was posted only two days ago and it is sitting on more than 3.5 million views.

Now go dry off your eyes. You’re going to need them for your weekend entertainment.
Let our Plumlist top 10 help you along:
