Many South Africans are of the opinion that festive is upon us where many argue that the level 1 announcement made it possible. During the various strict economic levels many could not enjoy fun times with their friends as there were many regulations in place. The month of RockTober has brought with it many relaxations of restrictions and many South Africans are in the party mood.
John Vuli Gate is a song that recently trended after ‘stocko’ danced to the music at a local Shell garage. This video spread like wildfire on social media and many have asked ‘John to Vula the gate’ to festivities and nice times. John Vuli gate simply put means that someone named John must open the gate as the stock has arrived, with the arrival of the stock people are expressing their happines as the stock would lead to a nice time.
It is important to note that South Africans are a dancing nation and that trendy dance moves are sure to spread like a wildfire. The impact of social media on the behaviour and dance moves of the society is so tremendous as a month ago people were dancing to the Jerusalema challange. South Africans have proven that a small incident such as dancing can lead to a viral movement.
This trend has made it clear that people are ready to consume in festive behaviours and have a good time.
