12 Signs You Were Born And Raised in South Africa

1. You frequently use and understand the meaning of “just now” and “now now.”

You know “I’m coming just now” means expect me when you see me. This can be anything from 5 minutes to a couple of hours from now.

“Dinner will be ready now now.” Translated this means you should have a snack in the meantime before you pass out from hunger. Why do we say now twice? We have no idea…

2. Friend or foe is addressed as ‘brother’ using the terms bro, bra, bru, or broe.

“My Bru, I must tell you what happened last night!”
“Bra, if you do that one more time I’m gonna kick your teeth in.”
