Local rapper Da Les recently attended the NBA finals between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors in Ohio, U.S., with TV presenter Scoop Makhathini.
Da Les attended the event dressed in full Cavaliers gear, which Slam Magazine found amusing.

Assuming that the publication, dubbed the "Basketball Bible", did not have an idea who the "Lifestyle" hitmaker was, some South Africans took it upon themselves to help by bringing that fact to the attention of American Twitter.
Many immediately condemned the trolls in true Mzansi style.
Leave Da LES alone, he just thought he'd dressed appropriately like Americans do when they come this side. pic.twitter.com/o1g77UIqU7— شون (@Tioranta) June 9, 2018

After defending him, Mzansi Twitter had some fun of their own. Also, the reactions are hilarious.
Da Les must be recalled from the US. He's bringing the whole country into disrepute. pic.twitter.com/Iyp2zmi3dI— #SinuousLinesDesign (@Sentletse) June 9, 2018
