Video clips of South Africans turning up at their college graduation have taken over the internet, and it's the best thing you'll see online.
As OkayAfrica reports, April is the season for graduation in South Africa, and the proof is on social media.
Similar to America, most institutions encourage diploma recipients to act in an orderly fashion and ask for their family and friends to hold applause until the end of the ceremony.
As we know, it's not a restriction that most historically Black colleges and universities struggle to uphold. Similarly, the same goes for institutions of higher learning on the African continent that are predominantly made of African students.
One African school of higher education, in particular, the University of KwaZulu-Natal, has consistently blown up social media using the hashtag #UKZNgrad. In 2017, the Durban college shared that it graduated over 1,500 students that year with nearly 58% of whom comprised its female student body.
This year, the university shared a plethora of reaction videos that included reactions such as tribal dances, freedom songs, jumps for joy and much more.
Watch some of the entertaining (and emotional) videos below.
