In these viral photos, Setlhabi Taunyane was accompanied by Vusi Thanda, famous for his role as Tshawe in the SABC1 comedy series Emzini Wezinsizwa, who was also indulging in a Thai massage.
A devoted Emzini Wezinsizwa fan, @tsheko2020, jokingly speculated about Bra Kop’s motive for taking on such an unexpected gig, suggesting, “I don’t know the reason Bra Kop took such a gig, but Tshawe doesn’t want to be broke again and ask for donations.”
For those curious about Thai massages, Health Online reports that this ancient practice is a fusion of healing arts drawing from Ayurvedic and traditional Chinese medicine. Unlike typical massages that involve lying on a bed while a therapist applies oils and kneads muscles, Thai massages are a unique and often stretching-intensive experience.
South Africans couldn’t resist sharing their thoughts on the viral Thai massage photos:
- @ka_nuggets: “Bra Kop was fighting for his life.”
- @Tandy8084: “Whoever took this pic has no peace lol.”
- @tsheko2020: “I don’t know the reason Bra Kop took such a gig but Tshawe doesn’t want to be broke again and ask for donations.”
- @thobval: “Kodwa why did Bra Kop agree to this.”
- @zuvarabuda01: “These ladies really stretch you. Went there with a slight backache, came back feeling worse.”
It seems that Bra Kop’s unexpected adventure into the world of Thai massage brought laughter and amusement to South Africans, proving that even legendary actors like Setlhabi Taunyane can surprise us with their off-screen antics.
