DJ Tira’s running skills prompt comparisons to Dladla Mshunqisi

DJ Tira has a viral video circulating of him running, which has resulted in social media users comparing it to Dladla Mshunqisi’s viral running video.

On Monday, 25 October 2021, a Twitter user shared a video of DJ Tira running. The Afrotainment musician was in Piet Retief for a performance. During his time there, there were gunshots fired, resulting in Tira running for his life. While the matter was grave, it seems that DJ Tira surviving only resulted in social media users taking the mickey out of the situation.

Some posts have already turned his running into a gif. However, more social media users have drawn similarities and rehashed the viral video of Dladla Mshunqisi running. During the KwaZulu-Natal protests by musicians and promoters in September 2020, Mshunqisi went viral after a video of him running away from the ammunition by the police surfaced. This video remains one of the most memorable viral videos of 2020, hence the parallels drawn between the two.
