A Limpopo farmer has gone viral after posting an epic video of himself showing off his awesome dance moves… while next to a bakkie with no shoes on. Obvs.
Limpopo, South Africa – The farmer, Gerhard Botha, posted the video to Facebook just under a week ago racking up thousands of views in the shortest time.
Gerhard wrote: “Ea lekhooa e ka tantša ho afrika mino” which is SeSotho for “The white man can dance to African music.” It turns out Gerhard can not only dance – he’s also fluent in Sotho and Sepedi (not to mention English and Afrikaans).
The 29-year-old farm manager told SAPeople his friend Jaco Espach took the video on the farm of one of their Limpopo friends. “I learnt to dance like that from some of our farmworkers… and so over the years, I started realising I’m getting better than some of them!” he says.
The song he is jamming too is by DJ Lenzo and DJ Rakzen with Koloi ya Phindi (Bolobedu music).
The video has been viewed almost 600 000 times (since posting this article) and received thousands of shares and comments:
Jennifer Gwendoline Vermaak Flippin commented: “Hilarious… at least we can have a giggle now and then… good dance.”
Chantall Klaasen Shibodze added: “White men can dance after all…”
