“Wait, wait, wait, mamela, mamela” child pleads for mom to hear him out as he wants to charge his car during loadshedding.


South Africa (24 July 2020) – An adorable South African tot is going viral for his reaction to not being able to charge his car during loadshedding. The cutie just can’t fathom why there is no power.

Many are comparing the little boy to the “Linda, listen” kid only this one is proudly South African. Three-year-olds can be quite precocious; they are growing up and fast becoming aware of the meaning of their words and how to convey what they mean.

The latest tot to take South Africa by storm is this little boy. Previously Mia Zwart had gone viral for becoming the “Listen, Linda” of South Africa.

If you don’t know the “Linda, Listen” viral video you have missed out, it was so cute at the time, and our proudly South African tots are double the cuteness because they are local. We have taken the liberty to add the original video below so take a look if you haven’t seen it.

The video was shared on the video-sharing platform TikTok and has quickly gone viral on platforms like Facebook and Twitter. Now if only Eskom would “Mamela, Mamela” to this cutie. Loadshedding is not cool man!

Take a look at the cute video below.
