Aubrey, who has over 24.9K followers and 512.8K likes, has seen her first video “Misconceptions about South Africa” go viral with over 1.5M views. The TikToker is full of praises for Mzansi and this is what she had to say.
In her video captioned, “travel is the best education”, she dispels myths on travelling to the country. Aubrey mentions the areas she’s travelled to from Cape Town to Joburg then Durban and Polokwane.
At the top of her list of misconceptions about travelling to Mzansi is the use of cash. Aubrey mentions that she thought that she would have to use cash when travelling, however, that has not been the case.
“I thought I was gonna need cash everywhere, you don’t. Not only do they take credit cards but Apple Pay. South Africa takes more Apple Pay than even in the United States,” said Aubrey.
The second misconception that she comments on is “gay culture”. Aubrey, who identifies as lesbian, said she thought she and her partner would have to be closeted while travelling to SA, however that was not the case.
