American singer, songwriter and producer Keyshia Cole sent out a tweet in Zulu and South Africans were both amused and loving it.
The responses ranged from delirious happiness and love to others joking that her Twitter account must have been hacked!
The tweet which translates to "Hi everyone. I love you. Thank you for following me" certainly got her lots of love and some new local followers.
She was quickly renamed Khanyisile Cele.
Lots of fans tweeted back 'Siyakuthanda nathi!' ...we love you too.
