Lasizwe Dambuza took his fans down memory lane with his latest skit, “Different Students Getting Their Test Results”.
In the video, he portrays a frustrated school teacher, who lashes out to her students for not doing well in a test. As soon as she walks in the class, she starts yelling: “This class is failing with flying colours.” The furious teacher adds: “I’m disappointed in all of you.”
This is followed by Michelle, a student wailing because she got 95% instead of 99%. Then there’s Karabo, who is celebrating his 40% pass mark, and the teacher seems very upset about the situation at hand especially with a majority of students failing in her class.
She continued to express her frustration and said, “So whether you pass or fail I still get my salary with a bonus, so continue being a class of failing with flying class. I’m going to sleep peacefully knowing that you all failed.”
Many fans found the skit funny and stated that Lasizwe reminded them of their school days, resulting in the star topping the local Twitter trends lists.
