Memes have taken over as one of the internet’s favourite ways of expressing itself, and 2017 has been no different.


In fact, this year we’ve seen celebrities become the victims of some of the most hilarious memes in the country.

Social media users never seem to run out of creatives ways to use images and these memes are evidence.

Binglish meme

“Binglish” was invented after Bonang Matheba’s debut book, From A to B became the biggest talking topic in the country. Not because it was particularly amazing, but because of the dramatic grammar errors from start to finish.

Lasizwe meme

Internet sensation, Thulasizwe “Lasizwe” Dambuza, has had many memeable moments but this has to be one of our favourites. This can apply to any situation when you catch someone lying or saying something they may regret.

Riky Rick meme

Riky Rick showed off another one of his cool signature poses. Little did he know that it would become the object of all jokes on the internet.

Papa Penny meme

While many of us would expect a Papa Penny meme to come out of hilarious TV show, it was actually his music video Goldbone that inspired this one.

Kgosi meme

Kgosi from The Queen (aka Sello Maake Ka-Ncube) has given us many meme-worthy frames during his time on the Mzansi Magic soapie. This tea sip will never go out of style:

Mastermind meme

This hilarious image of Generations actor, Ntokozo Dlamini staring at his spoon has gone viral around the country.


“Laughs in” meme

Following Bonang’s “Laughs in Binglish” meme, the phrase “Laughs in…” has seen many other variations – all depicting some of our favourite local stars.
